The company said its Color Asset Protection Film 2332 was designed for content owners who “originate or finish their productions on digital formats and want to protect their valuable media for the future.”

Kodak claimed the stock offered “over a century of dye stability when stored in recommended environments.”

“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,” president of Kodak’s entertainment imaging division Kim Snyder said.

“Our goal was to create an affordable film option designed for content owners working on television programmes, independent features and documentaries to assure long-term access and preservation of their valuable content.”

Additional features include improved speed and consistent image structure with equivalent sharpness and grain to the 2383 print film. Kodak plans to add a black-and-white separation film to their asset protection portfolio later this year.
