When tasked with reading patient provided discs or pulling CDs out of storage, there is always a data quality risk. Although highly secure, physical media like CDs and DVDs aren’t a perfect solution. Discs can become damaged and scratched, especially as they move from one location to another.
Recordable media are those products onto which content can be recorded to play back later. CD-Rs and DVD- Rs are some of the popular examples of recordable media. This article brings out the benefits of such products.
In 2015, JVC/Taiyo Yuden made the announcement that they will be stopping production of all optical media products effective at the end of that year, and will completely withdraw from the recordable media market.
The question of whether it was the right decision to discontinue the Floppy Disk in favor of the CD, DVD, USB and cloud computing is akin to asking whether it was the right decision to kill the typewriter in favor of the PC? The floppy rose and fell in the same way that technologies before it did.
Flash drives (also known as memory stick, pen drive and thumb drive) have come a long way since their announcement in September 2000 by IBM and development of the first thumb drive by Phison CEO and co-founder Pua Khein-Seng. They have nearly replaced Blu Ray optical disks for data storage purposes.
Everyday, it seems as if there’s reports about a new virus, computer break-in, or data theft making headlines. Rimage systems require a computer running Windows to operate, and are designed to take advantage of being networked.
What if you created a backup of important data from a hard drive, then later had the dreaded hard drive failure? You probably wouldn’t want to manually copy data from each disc onto the replacement hard drive individually. Instead, you can use Rimage Bulk Read to automate the process, and extract the actual files and folders from the disc instead of a disc image.
Often, it seems as if you can’t read a news article or view a news report without learning about another security breach resulting in consumer data being stolen. Now, more than ever, protecting data is vital to businesses and consumers. Did you know your Rimage system has several different options to encrypt the content that is being recorded?
Everyone has their pile of favorite, important and forgettable CD’s, DVD’s and Blu-rays accumulated over the years. These optical storage technologies offer the promise of cheap and relatively reliable long-term storage of data but are also vulnerable to data loss and physical damage.
In a world full of Clouds, offloading apps and media, as well as a fast-paced generation whose times move far too quickly to appreciate content for long, it may seem that recordable media (such as CD’s and DVD’s, USB drives, and hard drives) is no longer a necessity.
Technology keeps improving with time and recordable media devices are no exception. In the last three decades we have seen the quality and the quantity of recordable media devices reach new and previously unimaginable heights. Starting with the floppy disk and moving on to flash drives has been an interesting journey for recordable media technology. Let’s go through this journey and see how the evolution of this technology has affected us.
Why would you choose to save or back up your data to a cloud instead of a Disc or Drive? Do you like the simplicity of accessing it everywhere? Do you think it’s cheaper? Yes, it’s convenient, but if you are uploading large volume, it certainly can be costly.
For years people have never understood the difference between a CD-R and a CDROM. The same goes for DVD-R or DVD-ROM. The short explanation is: In CD-R, the -R means recordable. This means you take an actual disc and put it into a recordable disc drive and you copy data to this disc in a “Write Once” method. In CDROM, the ROM means “Read Only Memory.” What does that mean? Check this out, it’s really pretty amazing.
Since 1989, Microboards Technology has been a fast-growing company that grew right beside the CD-R that originally launched in 1988 by Phillips and Sony. Offering a full line of automated disc publishers ranging from recordable discs to USB Flash Drive tower duplicators.
