The Most Reliable Storage in the World.

Since the demise of negatives, it has been a continued challenge for photographers to reliably archive their digital files. Delkin has carefully developed a solution for those looking to preserve their images beyond the course of their career. Archival Gold offers the most unique and trustworthy CD-R, DVD-R and BD-R discs to safely store your most treasured digital data. This is the only storage medium guaranteed 100% uneditable, inerasable and tested to endure up to 200 years based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology. Users can conveniently refer back to their original data files & images when necessary and even pass them along to future generations. Each Archival Gold BD-R holds 25GB (about 5 times the largest DVD-R and 33 times the largest CD-R capacity) and boasts superior 6X speed. This equates to roughly 2 hours of full high definition playback and 23 hours of standard video.


How do Archival Gold BD-Rs differentiate from standard discs on the market? The most noticeable difference is that inferior quality discs typically have a limited useful life of 1 to 5 years. Exposure to natural elements like UV light, heat, and humidity as well as cheap manufacturing techniques and inferior design will cause quick deterioration to most CD's over time. In contrast, thirty percent of the cost to produce a Delkin Archival Gold disc can be attributed to the use of 24 karat gold, one of the most inert elements on earth. More importantly, gold has proven to be highly effective in preventing oxidation, which is the classic cause of disc failure. Delkin's unique Scratch Armor resistant coating serves as an additional guard from scratches, scuff, dirt and even chemicals, adding ten times more protection than similar uncoated media.

Although many professionals carelessly choose to safeguard their images on a hard drive, there are several disadvantages to using this type of storage system. In fact, using any form of mechanical hardware presents the risk of physical breakage or outright failure, with little hope of retrieving your valuable data. Furthermore, it is impossible to ensure that the data on a hard drive has not been modified, which is especially important in the case of event photographers that may need to occasionally refer back to their original images. Archival Gold discs conveniently ensure that your data has not been tampered with, modified or rewritten. Similarly, solid state devices like CompactFlash cards are limited to a 10-year retention rate. Because all Flash memory cards require a periodic surge of electricity to continue working properly over time, this means that leaving your archived card unused for too long can result in permanent data loss.
