Digital Media Preservation and Conversion

Digital preservation is the method of keeping digital material alive so that it remains usable as technological advances render original hardware and software specification obsolete.

Physical storage media, data formats, hardware, and software all become obsolete over time, posing significant threats to the survival of the content.

To overcome these problems a series of actions need to take place in order to ensure access and reuse all of the digital assets over time, including risk assessment for content loss, and format conversion descisions.

Realiscape Typorama specializes in Digital Media Preservation, using a series of techniques such as storage refreshing, data migration to newer formats and file replication with capacity to handle millions of images and text files or thousands of audio and video files.
