We all know that summer is a great time for music festivals, but more and more of the best music festivals are now held in October, November and December. Is it because of the cooler temperatures? Maybe so, but it’s the best time of the year for art, music and wine festivals across the nation. So it’s also a good time for independent artists and bands to be able to distribute their music and art to many art and music loving patrons that attend these music festivals. Printed demo CDs are essential for the indie start-up band who can’t afford full retail CD replication, but still want to provide a professional looking physical product to represent them as a first impression. That’s why GotMedia sells high quality and professional looking media and CD DVD printing equipment for the do-it-yourselfer; perfect for artists and musicians everywhere to be able to come together and share their creativity both quickly and reliably at these fall music festivals!

Earlier this year, Sony Corporation & Panasonic Corporation announced that they have formulated “Archival Disc”, a new standard for next-generation optical discs, professional-use, with the objective of expanding the market for long-term digital data storage.
Optical discs have excellent properties to protect themselves against the environment, such as dust-resistance and water-resistance, and can also withstand changes in temperature and humidity when stored. They also allow inter-generational compatibility between different formats, ensuring that data can continue to be read even as formats evolve. This makes them robust media for long-term storage of content. Recognizing that optical discs will need to accommodate much larger volumes of storage going forward, particularly given the anticipated future growth in the archive market, Sony and Panasonic have been engaged in the joint development of a standard for professional-use next-generation optical discs.

In this digital age we live in, more and more important and vital documents and data for companies exist in an electronic format. Data archiving used to be an expensive endeavor, but you may be unfamiliar with the most cost effective and reliable way to archive; on to blu-ray disc media. Many people now are familiar with blu-ray being able to store high definition, high quality video, movies, video games, etc. However, blu-ray media is also the superior choice for archiving important and large amounts of data. Why? Tape drives and HDD’s are good for backing up temporarily, but are not long-term solutions. The main benefits of archiving using blu-ray discs are 1.) reduced risk of data loss, 2.) reduced storage costs, and 3.) long term data retention and reliability. There are different types of blu-ray discs for archiving, so be sure to call one of GotMedia’s knowledgeable representatives for more information on which blu-ray brand best fits your archiving needs.
Even though it may appear that we’ve been slowly moving away from optical media, with music on our iPods or iPhones, and so many streaming video options, according to ExtremeTech, recent studies show that many consumers still prefer physical discs; especially in the video gaming industry. Other fields, such as medical imaging, software development and retail Blu-ray manufacturing are still going strong utilizing the compatibility and reliability of optical media. This makes sense because if you think about it, there are many practical uses for media, and that pretty much anyone can load and play it. A DVD-R for example will play on any DVD player, Blu-ray player, most computers made in the last decade and will most likely play in your car! Can you stream or download in your car? Maybe you can on your cell phone, through a mobile network, but quality and download speeds are still an issue. GotMedia in Orange County, CA offers virtually every optical media solution for many industries, and remains the go-to option for companies looking to buy quality media at affordable prices.
It’s amazing that technology has advanced to the point where you can attend a Church service, walk out on to the patio area immediately afterwards and see a stack of printed CDs of the sermon you just heard available to take home! How do they do this?

GotMedia offers everything these Churches need to do the job! Everything from the disc re-corders and disc publishers, to the media and ink cartridges needed to quickly publish, duplicate and print these sermon CDs so that they are ready for Church-goers on the way out!
