The latest technological innovation in family snapshots is putting them on a disc to watch on TV. The process begins at photo finishers, who put the pictures onto special compact discs. The discs are played on the Eastman Kodak Photo CD player. The player can also be used for music CDs and, with a CD ROM and appropriate software, can change colors or enlarge parts of pictures on a computer screen.

Consumer electronics manufacturer Denon on Thursday introduced what it billed as the first compact disc recorder for the home at a price of $19,000. Up to now, consumers have been able to buy prerecorded compact discs and players but could not record their own CDs from existing records, tapes or other discs. The Denon system enables them to do that--albeit, at a hefty price. Denon said it expects its prices to drop sharply within the next year and that units could sell for $5,000 in two years.
