Moreover, Kodak has introduced a new motion picture film:KODAK Color Asset Protection Film 2332 is optimized for content owners who originate or finish their productions on digital formats and want to protect their valuable media for the future. The stock offers over a century of dye stability when stored in recommended environments.

The company plans to add a black-and-white separation film to its asset-protection portfolio later this year.

“File-based projects often end up stored on tapes or drives, which need to be continually re-mastered or migrated, and run the risk of format obsolescence,” says Kim Snyder, president of Kodak’s Entertainment Imaging Division. “Our goal was to create an affordable film option - designed for content owners working on television programs, independent features, and documentaries - to assure long-term access to, and preservation of, their valuable content.”
