Just a question that's popped into my head. If a certain DVD type is touted to be archival grade, where in normal conditions last up to a hundred years, what purpose would this be?
I'm thinking of something like this:
I ask this because as we know technology advances so quickly, in a 100 years of our hologram phones and TVs will anyone still be watching DVDs or using DVD players before they are backed up to another medium? We already know DVD is already on it's last legs, it won't be long before Blu-Ray recorders are in the hands of the consumers and all we can watch is high def channels - Maybe even super ultra uber high def!
Think of the U-matic recorders of the 1970s; only for backing up to another format I can't think of why anyone would use them. Maybe it's just me though
I doubt our grandchildren will still be using DVD players, let alone DVD recorders in a hundred years. So maybe this guarantee is a little moot?
