An introduction to the CREWES CD

Henry C. Bland, Darren S. Foltinek

After seven years and 3000 pages of research reports, the CREWES Project has turned to the compact disk to disseminate its latest results efficiently and effectively. The compact disk (CD) was developed as way to distribute high quality digital audio. In recent years, this same technology has become the media of choice for distributing large (2 MB-650 MB) amounts of data to millions of computer and workstation users. The technologies used to make the first CREWES CD allow it to be used on all popular computers and we hope it will be immediately useful to the majority of CREWES sponsors.
