Picture Archiving and Sharing Standard (PASS) v1.0 Completed

Fuji Photo Film Co, Eastman Kodak, and Konica Minolta Photo Imaging announced the completion of a set of standards for the consumer imaging and electronics industries, setting a path to help ensure compatibility of digital photos and motion images on CDs, DVDs or other media with a broad range of consumer products.


In much the same way that today's consumer can get nearly any brand of film processed at any location, the PASS group wants to ensure that digital images can be retrieved from any digital device or storage medium.


The PASS version 1.0 specification suite includes:

  • PASS Logical Disc Specification. This specification describes the logical components or data structures that are found on a PASS disc.


  • PASS Originating/Authoring System Requirements Specification. This
    specification describes the capabilities needed by a system that creates PASS discs.


  • PASS Receiving/Playback System Requirements Specification. This specification describes the capabilities needed.
