Zooming in to nostalgia
KODAK is about to launch a L 30-million photo compact disc (CD) campaign in which ordinary snapshots can be stored on special compact discs and then flashed on the television. The player works in a manner similar to an audio CD and can also play audio CDs. It uses a remote control device that can access pictures, browse through prints and zoom in for close-ups. Phillips will make the first players, but Kodak has signed up other manufacturers, including Pioneer, Sony and Toshiba, as well.
