I think that CD ROM or video CD could be a solution for storage of old
and historical films. I've been working on digital and I don,t believe
that we have the solution for storage films yet. Instead of tape (a
limited solution) or film, we could use cd-roms or video CDs, but never
hard drives, until now.
