VIDEODISCS AND INDEXES

SLICE OF LIFE VIDEODISC INVENTORY IS DEPLETED:
The Slice of Life Project cleared its remaining inventory of Slice of Life VI and VII Videodiscs in the first half of 2004. We distributed our remaining discs to individuals, medical students, medical schools, libraries or health care educational facilities for the cost of shipping & handling only.

No commercial publishers or re-distributors were eligible. Any re-sale of the videodiscs was strictly prohibited. Use of the videodisc for anything other than legitimate, non-commercial, educational use was strictly prohibited.

Our priority was to distribute our remaining videodiscs to existing customers and owners of any edition of the Slice of Life, followed by other interested parties.

An application form was required to qualify for the free videodiscs. Completed applications were reviewed by the producers of the Slice of Life.

A complete index that includes individual image descriptions and metadata for the image frames on the Slice of Life VI, Slice of Life VII, or Slice of Brain I videodisc was available on individual CD-ROMs in FileMaker Pro or ASCII text format (both Windows and Macintosh). The various Indexes were NOT part of the VIDEODISC GIVEAWAY.

CD-ROM INDEXES:
We can still make copies of the CD-ROM INDEXES to Slice of Life VI, Slice of Life VII, and Slice of Brain I for US$25.00 (site license). These indexes are provided as both FileMaker Pro files and ASCII data ready for importing into your favorite database or spreadsheet program on Windows-based and Apple-based computers. Because the videodisc project has ended, the CD-ROM INDEXES are sold "as is." We know they work (except for serial cable control from computers to videodisc players). The CDs include very good documentation for installation and use. If you cannot find answers to your questons in our Frequently Asked Questions and need technical support, email slice@media.utah.edu or the contacts listed on the page About Us. Although the videodisc technology and our videodiscs are no longer the technology "de jour," we will attempt to answer your questions. The people you reach were involved with the project for over a decade and are happy to share what knowledge they have, even though the videodisc project itself has come to an end.

OTHER SOFTWARE:
Many valuable software programs and educational materials were created by faculty and institutions around the world to accompany the Slice of Life videodiscs. Unfortunately, almost all of these programs no longer function on contemporary computer operating systems. The times have changed. Some individuals have migrated their programs to the World Wide Web. In most cases, the software has simply been retired.

The Slice of Life Office does NOT distribute any of these software programs, although that was true many years ago. If you would like to read about these materials (from an historical point of view), please visit our Slice of Life Project History.
