1982 – Sony and Phillips launch the compact disc in Japan

Compact disc (CD) is a digital optical disc data storage format that was co-developed by Philips and Sony and released on the 1st October, 1982.

The format was originally developed to store and play only digital audio recordings (CD-DA) but was later adapted for storage of data (CD-ROM).

At the time of the technology’s introduction in 1982, a CD could store much more data than a personal computer hard drive, which would typically hold 10 MB.

Several other formats were further derived from these, including write-once audio and data storage (CD-R), rewritable media (CD-RW), Video CD (VCD), Super Video CD (SVCD), Photo CD, Picture CD, Compact Disc-Interactive (CD-i), and Enhanced Music CD.

Extra Note: The first commercially available audio CD player, the Sony CDP-101, was released October 1982 in Japan.
