OSTA ODAT Committee

OSTA’s, Optical Disc Archive Test (ODAT) committee addresses end user needs calling for established practices in media archive life testing and classification. The committee has two working groups: WG1 will address Specification Technical Development, while WG-2 will focus on Business Development & Implementation. Committee goals are to drive product quality to higher levels; achieve recognition and implementation of the specification as a standard; support the emergence of Archival Grade Media; create a marketable value-add for optical products – product differentiation based on archival grade; and support manufacturers marketing of optical disc vs tape or hard disk drives as the archival media of choice. Please check the meeting calendar for updates. For further information, please contact
