Paper Abstract

CD-ROM represents a novel and relatively effective way to store and retrieve images in a PC environment. Indeed it may be the only current method to have real utility. This paper reviews the basics of this method and the various format options available. The advantage of the CD format and, more critically, its' very real limitations are reviewed. From this analysis a set of application 'ground rules' will be developed that attempt to defme what are potentially good (i.e. successful) applications and what are not likely to succeed in the market place. Finally the evolution trends for newer image related laser based read only formats are discussed and some possible R & D routes outlined.
