Imagery Storage Formats

Over the last few decades, new digital storage formats increased and diversified, with the same statements of huge new improvement over the previous format. But are the new formats as good and as stable as they tell us?

Since the proliferation of storage devices, there have been a lot of promises on the long term durability of the formats by their inventors. The computer industry has spent years of over-promising and under-delivering on these promises.

With this in mind, I created my own encyclopedia of real and fake storage formats to point out the sometimes absurdity of the industry.
