So why is Virtual "Better" than Physical?

Virtual-Products Last FOREVER!

Why?

1) Virtual-Products are "liberated" (freed) from any one physical device or medium

Let me give you a clue. We NOW have a service that "salvages video" from recordable DVD discs and Blu-ray discs! Hint; hint!

You want THE OFFICIAL LATEST BREAKING NEWS!

Don't shoot me, I am just the messenger...

National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)
Warnings to the General Public about DVD for long term storage:

Who tha'heck is NARA?

NARA is THE FEDERAL AGENCY that sets "guidelines" for protecting ALL Federal Records within ALL Federal Agencies -- including the Library of Congress and The State Department.

NARA not only "protects" many records -- as a national "watchdog" -- but NARA has "very big teeth"!

For example, NARA challenged the "archive procedures" for Hillary Clinton's e-mails. You know the rest of the story...

To protect consumers, NARA has recently revised their warnings on CD/DVD -- from 2 to 5 years -- down to 1 year, as follows:

National Archives: Current Public Advisory:

Recordable (DVD) optical media have widely varying life expectancies. It is not entirely uncommon for some discs to become unreadable in less than 1 year. Relying on recordable discs to last for generations is probably not viable.   

SOURCE: http://www.archives.gov/preservation/formats/video-condition-assessment.html     

Burned (recordable CD-R, DVD-R, BD-R) discs make use of an organic dye layer in order to record data and are typically less reliable because this dye is more susceptible to degradation over time. Recordable CDs, Blu-rays, and DVDs have proven to be fairly unstable over time, and are deemed a bad choice for long-term preservation.

Source: http://www.archives.gov/preservation/formats/video-important-characteristics.html

NARA Abolished the Use of Recordable DVD disc for Storage of Federal Records

One month after Final Report of the NIST/LC Optical Disc Longevity Study -- which proved

  • DVD Recorders are the main reason recordable DVD fail and
  • a "recordable DVD" can statically last 45 years; however, ...
  • for day-to-day "archive practices" none of us have
    • the custom made disc recording technology nor
    • the money nor
    • the team of engineers required
  • to make DVDs last 45 years!

NARA blasted the FINDINGS of NIST/LC Optical Disc Longevity Study --

  • right out of the Federal Guidelines
  • thus banning the use of recordable DVD discs for long term storage (more below)!

Why?

Forget Why!

If you are using CDs and DVD for long term storage -- you should PANIC, NOW -- run, not walk, to your CDs and DVDs -- to see if they will even play -- say nothing of play all the way through!

Learn more (later) at How Pigs Fly and DVD Longevity Soars -- plus a lot more dirty little secrets the "transfer mills" do NOT want you to know about DVD discs. You can find this information under DVDs: Lies, Darn Lies and Statistics (in the links above).

For now, the following Inter-Agency Notice is what you need to know...

National Archives and Records Administration (NARA)
Newsletter To Regional Offices

Optical Storage for Federal Records

Agencies are increasingly relying on optical storage media - CDs and DVDs“ for storage of business records and other information.
Here is a summary of NARA guidance -- which are now revised to 1 year -- not 2 to 5 years...

  • CDs and DVDs are not an archival storage medium. Do not rely on them to store permanent records.
  • CDs and DVDs are made up of various layers of materials and are subject to physical, mechanical, and chemical changes that may render them unreadable in a relatively short period of time.
  • Recordable CD-R disks store data by means of organic dyes, compounds that degrade over time. The CD-writing process permanently alters the optical properties of the dye, changing the reflectivity of those areas. When the disk is read, light pulses are translated into data that can be interpreted by computer systems. Direct sunlight accelerates the degradation of the CD-R dyes; heat may cause the CD-R structure to break down.
  • CD-R/DVD-R have an expected life expectancy of only 2-5 years, far shorter than the published claims of many manufacturers. Test them every 2 years to be sure they are still readable. Unrecorded CDs and DVDs (properly stored) have a useful shelf life of between 5 and 10 years.
  • Store CDs and DVDs upright, like a book, in jewel cases designed specifically for them.
  • Cool, dry, stable storage conditions--62-70° F, 35-50% relative humidity, the same as office environments comfortable for stagnated the useful life of CDs.
  • Prepare a detailed inventory of the files on each CD or DVD, including information sufficient to identify individual records. Include the name and version of the software application used to create each file on each CD in the inventory.
  • Verify the CD contents: 1) Read the disc immediately after writing to it and before storing it, to verify that your files were actually written to the CD and are readable. 2) Know that the discs might only be readable on the specific drive that produced them; test this. 3) The data recorded on CD-Rs or DVDs should not be zipped.
  • Be aware that changes in computer hardware, operating systems, and software may render CDs/DVDs unreadable even if they have not chemically or physically degraded.
  • Due to their instability, and depending on the retention period of the records stored on them, CD-Rs containing Federal records will need to be periodically refreshed to avoid loss. Your agency will need to develop policy and processes to assure access to electronic records stored on these media.
  • When records reach the end of their retention period, or if damage occurs to media during storage, the media will need to be destroyed so that data are irretrievable. Shredding or disintegrating them will render their information contents unreadable and the confidentiality of the records will be protected.

NOW FOR THE GOOD NEWS -- ABOUT DVDS!

We give our clients Virtual-DVD™ Disc-IMAGES™ -- which our clients can use -- to make new DVD discs -- thousands of them if they so desire. If a DVD "goes bad" or "gets flaky", our clients just burn a new one! We FREE both YOU and your VIDEO from the DVD Disc Trap!

By "virtualizing" video for the DVD standard, we have created a new DVD product -- called the Solid State DVD™. We have branded Solid State DVD™ as the Home-Movies-N-a-Flash™ Drive.

Our re-invention of the DVD product line, PROTECTS our clients from DVD failure -- while allowing them to ENJOY traditional DVD technology -- as long as our clients want to use DVD technology. This technology goes light-years beyond copying a video file to a flash drive or hard drive.

But even Virtual DVDs also called DVD Disc Images -- are OLD NEW! There is now a step up from this technology!

If you have old (endangered) DVDs and CDs, we can "salvage" and "upgrade them" -- just like above!

A Diversification of Virtual-Products that gives our clients "Universally Compatible" with "many" devices AND many media

FOREVER!

For Example: Any of our "Virtual-Drives" -- can be "hosted" -- on ANY storage device

which gives "new life" to your home movies -- across all the following media:

Your "Home Movie Life" extends to "Universally Compatible" with

And yes, "one virtual disc" can be used to make millions of

IN LAYMAN'S TERMS THAT MEANS, YOUR HOME MOVIES CAN "LIVE ON" -- ON...

How Virtual-Products Can Last FOREVER:

The "life" of your "Virtual-Products" are not tied to the "life" of any ONE physical-product.

For Example: We have layered each of our Virtual Products inside of a Virtual Container -- to insolate each of our Virtual-Product from the life span of any one "physical media or physical drive".

We have also created a "virtual drive" -- a virtual library for ALL our products -- which itself can be hosted on ANY type drive -- Hard Drive, SSD, Flash Drive, Memory Card or Cloud Drive -- now available -- or available in the future.

AND OUR VIRTUAL PRODUCTS ARE TRANSPARENT TO YOU AS YOU USE IT!

The strategy of protecting data by "replicating" a physical hard drive is NOT a new idea, unfortunately, the OLD strategy of replicating a physical hard drives does NOT liberate the data from physical requirements of the hard drive;

UNTIL NOW!

"Virtual Drives" are NOT dependent on any one physical drive.

Thus the duplication of "Virtual-Drives" frees the data from physical constructs -- opening the door for data to be stored on ANY DEVICE or ANY MEDIA (large enough to contain the entire "virtual drive").

Virtualization extends longevty -- by use of digital replication -- from HERE and NOW -- to ANY STORAGE MEDIA in the FUTURE -- Virtually-For-EVER™.

FOOD FOR THOUGHT: Use of an M-Disc still requires you archive a DVD or Blu-ray "player" -- with your M-Disc. One good acratch on the M-Disc... your video is gone, gone -- because your video is "captured" to your M-Disc.

The better idea is Virtualize your Video -- and OPTIONALLY use physical M-Disc.

For Example: Placing a "Virtual DVD™" inside a "Virtual Drive™" extends the use of the Virtual-DVD to ANY "physical storage device" OR any "physical media". The NEW medium of DVD can now be functional not only on physical DVD discs (and M-Disc), but also on Solid State Drives, or "Cloud Drives".

Multiple "virtual disc" duplications is a far better "logevity strategy" than any "physical disc duplication" strategy -- which is also dependant on "multiple disc players", too -- which most people forget.

Each "Virtual-Product" has a life of its own -- with one purpose -- PRESERVATION!

We call this New Innovation to Video Preservation -- Virtual Layering™.

We are the first and only company to

Layer Virtual-Products in side of other virtual products!

Virtual-Layering™ frees them ALL the virtual products above
from the "death" of any one PHYSICAL device or PHYSICAL medium
when "reproducing" the "virtual drive" among family members

thus "VIRTUALIZATION" GIVES YOU

LAYERD-VIRTUALIZATION™ insures

Home-Movies-For-EVER™ Drives

High Capacity Hard DriveHigh Capacity Flash Drive

Pictured Above:

OK, why are our drive different

Simple.

We are the first and only company to

Layer Virtual-Products in side of other virtual products!

Virtual-Layering™ frees ALL the Virtual-Products™ above
from the "death" of any one PHYSICAL device or an one PHYSICAL medium.

And part of our plan for your family, is to have at least 4 duplicate (cloned) drives so that your home movies are protected from the loss of any one drive. More on this later.

When a "Transfer Mill" gives you a "hard drive" --

ON THE OTHER HAND...

OUR "LAYERD-VIRTUALIZATION™" GIVES YOU

OUR DRIVES GIVE YOU OUR LAYERD-VIRTUALIZATION™

For Example: We may format a hard drive for "Windows 7", however, that hard drive contains a "virtual drive" that is compatible with Microsoft Windows, Apple OSX, Linux, and ANY OTHER OPERATING SYSTEM -- NOW -- or which will be created in the future!

OK, so what is it?

Home-Movies-For-EVER™ Drive is a Video Preservation-Library™

Home-Movies-For-EVER™ Drive is a Virtual-Drive within a Physical-Drive

Home-Movies-For-EVER™ Drive is NOT a bunch of "dumb" files on a "dumb" drive -- like other companies sell -- leaving YOU to "figure out" -- what the different video files are used for -- and what different software will work with them and -- if they will even work with a Mac or PC computer.

Home-Movies-For-EVER™ Drive is a Smart-Drive™ -- with self-contained Tutorial, media player and more! Your "apps" start (boot) from "your drive" -- not the host computer. This means, the host computer -- Mac or PC -- does NOT have to supply anything needed to view your movies. This means software that you know how to use -- is at your finger-tips -- anytime, anywhere, any computer -- PC or Mac.

We include ONE Home-Movies-For-EVER™ Drive -- to get you started. Then YOU and YOUR FAMILY will be able to clone MANY Home-Movies-For-EVER™ Drives.

Bottom Line: Since all our files are "containerized" for "virtual" display and
because even our "drives" are "virtual drives" ...

YOUR Virtual Video™ Archive is totally


NOTE: To have a "true archive" you must have at least 4 cloned copies of your Home-Movies-For-EVER™ Drive. The more copies beyond 4 that you or your family make, the greater the probability that your video legacy can last -- Virtually-For-EVER™.

Making extra copies of your Home-Movies-For-EVER™ Drive is something you can do or we can do (by special order).

Introduction to Virtually-For-Ever� Virtual-Transfers™


M-Disc Facts: Before committing your video to M-Discs for archive purposes, consider the following facts - which in my opinon -- should be considered:

Bottom Line: In my opinion, M-Disc contributes "too little, too late" -- to save the DVD and Blu-ray Disc industry.

Bottom Line: Virtual-Discs are the superior archive medium to ANY-Disc™ -- requiring NO physical disc and NO physical player.

Addressing the "idiots" who insist that DVD are an "archive medium", NARA references the following "Longevity Study":

"Consumers" are "Commercial" Clients, too!

We do not deprive Consumer Clients of their "legal rights and property" -- which we call Copyrighted Assets -- which Consumer Clients may not even know they have.

The practice of denying and disposing of Copyrighted Assets -- without the knowledge and agreement of a client -- is NOT tolerated in Commercial Archive Commerce;

HOWEVER, this practice IS "common practice" in Consumer Archive Commerce.

For Example: PBS, FOX, NBC, and Private Investors would sue me, if I am paid to produced a DVD for them -- without giving them

  • their Virtual-DVD "disc image" (a foundation-product) -- and
  • their "master files" (a foundation-product) -- also made -- as part of the process - of making physical DVD Discs --
  • because Implied Copyrighted-Assets™ are foundation-products OF THEIR DVD!

By commercial standards,

  • the "master file" (foundation-product) is considered MORE IMPORTANT
  • than the "DVD Disc Image"(foundation-product) --
  • which is considered MORE IMPORTANT
  • than the DVD Disc (end product).

Why?

  1. The Master File is used to make "other" products -- like Blu-ray, MP4, etc.
  2. The DVD Disc-Image is used to make many (sometimes millions) of DVD discs.

The National Archives & Records Administration (NARA) says:

  • CDs and DVDs are not an archival storage medium. Do not rely on them to store permanent records.
  • CD-R/DVD-R have an expected life expectancy of only 2-5 years, far shorter than the published claims of many manufacturers. Test them every 2 years to be sure they are still readable. Unrecorded CDs and DVDs (properly stored) have a useful shelf life of between 5 and 10 years.

This "archive standard" creates a liability of disclosure, truth in advertising, and protection from damages (from DVDs) for ALL companies, especially those selling "Archive Services and Archive Products".

All this is "understood" to be "The Law of Commerce" in "Commercial" Archive Services and "Commercial" Studio Services -- and "understanding that ALL "Commercial" Clients -- and their lawyers -- enforce.

To vary from this standard for a "Single Mother" -- depriving her of her rights and of her Implied Copyrighted Assets -- is discrimination -- if not fraud -- since the DVD itself is a "temporary product" -- sold as an "archive product" -- a loss which will damage her entire family -- forever!

We assumed that YOU, the client, have implied or undeclared "copyrights" on YOUR home movies; and these copyrights extend to ALL foundation-products made in the process of making FINAL PRODUCTS -- from YOUR home movies -- ALL OF WHICH YOU PAY FOR -- when you "order a DVD" -- MADE FROM FROM YOUR HOME MOVIE FILMS OR VIDEO TAPES.

We also assume discarding YOUR Copyrighted Assets -- or charging YOU extra (twice) for them -- is WRONG! We believe in, "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you."

This why we, do NOT take production short-cuts -- that would deprive you of any Copyright Assets (another common "consumer archive" practice).

As Archive Consultants, we advise a client if they are requesting a method of production that would diminish the quality of their Copyrighted Assets -- like Hyper-Formatting a Master File from tiny 8mm film.

These types of "disclosures" are commonly omitted from "Consumer" Archive Services.

We have NEVER sold a DVD "as an archive medium"; but have always given clients their "Copyrighted Assets" to replace and reproduce EVERYTHING, as need or wanted.



Why is this Important To You?

The loss of your home movies is second only to the loss of a beloved family member.

Proof of this is that when families lose their homes (to fires, tornados, etc.) the first thing they look for are 1) other family members, 2) pets, and 3) pictures.

Home movies are a final connection to "lost loved ones" and "the times of a family's life". Just knowing "you CAN revisit the past" and "revisit living images of yourself and loved-ones" is an emotional comfort and security; And, when you are gone, your family will more-so cherish their home movies -- because they are the final, last link to you -- the next best thing to being with the "real YOU". Knowing YOU -- is a right of all future generations -- which we make happen!

Master Files and disc-images belong to a family -- by legal virtue of the family "ordering and paying for the creation of a physical DVD".

Giving a family possession of their "DVD disc image" allows the family to make replace DVDs and make AS MANY NEW DVDs -- as they need or want -- as are lost, or damaged; and as DVDs expire -- every 5 years, according to NARA; and,

Giving a family possession of their "Master Files" allows them to make "other products", like products for the Internet -- when DVDs are no longer the technical fade of the era -- to protect and preserve a family's Home Movie Archive Investment -- Virtually-For-EVER!

Why? Because, the DVD industry will soon be a footnote in history books -- like "music CDs" and "vinyl records" and "video tape" industries.

The BIG REASON is that having these Copyright Assets protects the family from fiscal or emotional losses and damages to the family -- due to the loss of their visual history in moving images. Family identity is important!

There is MUCH MORE to learn about Your Copyrighted Assets at this link.

My Point is,

All YOUR Copyrighted Assets are in YOUR
Virtually-For-EVER Home-Movie Library!

Our image preservation archive standards meet and exceed

  • The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) and
  • The Library of Congress

Namely, our Virtually-For-Ever™ Preservation-Library™ System

We are honored to add your "home movie" images

Why? Because "home movies" document "True Americans" and "True American Traditions" and "True American Communities" and the "TRUTH" of what made America great -- the American Family. Families who trusted more in God, than in Government; who taught their children that their "word" -- and freedom to "speak the truth" -- was more important than "politically correct rhetoric" (a politically correct way to say "lies").

Home Movies must be preserved -- to preserve the memory of the "American Family".

YOUR FAMILY, YOUR MEMORY!

My best kept secret -- is our Staff.

Our staff works as a team on each project. They might work on a "National Treasure" one day and on your "Private Collection" the next.

They KNOW YOU are special and KNOW all our clients, by name. They value all your home movies -- for what they are -- and they Virtual-IMAGINEER™ them -- to be all that they can be.

They are Artists, in their own right, and your "home movies" becomes their ART. That's why their names become part of your video credits -- along with my name. For this reason, my name, and theirs, on your product is a "stamp of quality" -- and PRIDE!
