Photo CD PCD to Tiff Migration Case Study
In early 2005, noticing degradation of its earlier digital collection, with some CDs being impossible to open and Eastman Kodak no longer supporting Photo CD technology, CMCC took measures to ensure the preservation of its collection by migrating the PCD images into TIFF 6.0.
This paper describes actions taken by CMCC to overcome and prevent further deterioration. It deals in a practical manner with day-to-day issues encountered and technical challenges faced during the migration process. It offers useful guidance that could be replicated throughout similar projects.
