What do you do to preserve your organisation's digital and AV records?
With the world wide growth of digital information
we as a people now have a new problem, there is a
mass of data that must be stored and interpreted
permanently. There is a strong risk that we will
lose a good deal of our data, both that which is
digital and that which is not yet digitalized.
Today many of our processes become obsolete
quickly and are replaced by new storage process,
so that we need numerous systems to access all
our old data. How well we can access our legacy
of data will have important consequences in our
organization's ability to retain our information
capital as well as our Human cultural heritage.
Currently new techniques of archiving and
retrieving of audiovisual records are being
developed and are resulting in new methods for
the retention of capital of audiovisual
information and the preservation and access of
films, videos and interactive media.
