Photo CD

An imaging system for photofinishers from Kodak (www.kodak.com) that digitized 35mm and Advantix film onto a CD-ROM in five Photo CD (PCD) resolutions. Using a Kodak Picture Imaging Workstation, each photographic-quality image (2048x3072x24) compressed into 6MB. Thumbnails were also provided. Photo CD did not take off as expected and was followed by the Picture CD system, which creates JPEG images. See Picture CD.

Several Formats
Kodak tried to cover all bases with different formats. Pro Photo CD was offered for images from professional format film; Photo CD Catalog had the ability to store thousands of pictures; and Photo CD Medical was created for CAT scans and MRIs.
