Following is information about the session on Saving Data Forever:  Long Term Content Preservation and Archiving


High resolution content won’t last forever unless content owners create a rational archive that includes good metadata and digital asset management.  Today’s archives serve as active libraries for a multitude of content distribution networks as well as long-term content repositories.  As the complexity and resolution of digital content increases, archiving technology will play a bigger role in making sure today’s content survives.  This session will help you with your long-term data protection plan.
