New Technology Transforms Memories to Digital Files
Precious photographs can be the most devastating loss after a natural disaster. Those memories are gone forever. Today, with the help of digital technology, Photomax will help preserve and recreate those memories.
(PRWEB) May 7, 2006 -- Audley Morris, a 38 year old flight attendant created an online business that has become part of an $85 billion market, with something everybody in the world can relate to: Photographs.
Research indicates that video footage and trillions of photographs taken with film over the last 100 years will degrade beyond recognition within 20 years from now. Photomax Digital Imaging is the only web based service that will convert your existing prints, videos and negatives to digital images. Anyone can use the free website to create DVD photo movies and over 150 products with the click of a mouse, plus it provides 5GB of free digital storage.
Morris came upon the concept after reading an article in the Wall Street Journal last year highlighting that making money in the digital revolution is available to the company with the most innovative product. In the past year, several online photo services such as ShutterFly and Flickr have created a new wave of photo storage options. Recently, Internet giant Google entered the scene with a photo sharing service. Most online photo sites offer similar services; however Photomax has created a niche by allowing people to send in their videos, traditional photos and negatives, while offering free storage. Kodak and other majors have ceased or slowed production of film cameras, switching their focus to digital.
"Everybody has videos and pictures sitting at home in boxes and albums. Over the years those pictures fade or they can get damaged in a flood or fire. We transform them into digital files and save them permanently. We give you a free website so you can organize them, or share them with other people," said Morris, describing the product is a recent interview. "This is truly a unique, fresh idea. I wish I had thought about it," said James Massey, a financial analyst with Dun and Bradstreet.
In December 2001, Morris lost precious photographs dating back to his great-grandparent's childhood. "I was devastated when I came home and my stuff was strewn all over the sidewalk." Even with the major success in his business, Morris contines to work as a flight attendant. When asked why he continues to work in such a turbulent (pun intended) industry, Morris said "I like my airline and the perks so I'll keep working. Plus (chuckling) it's easier to go through security." He is employed by an airline based at Chicago's O'hare Airport.
Morris has a special interest in helping airline workers who and others who need a second income.
