Preservathon: Audiovisual Preservation Storage Solutions
Op 25 en 26 juni organiseert de PrestoCentre Foundation een interactief evenement in Turijn, Italië. Tijdens deze Preservathon wordt aandacht besteed aan belangrijke thema's en uitdagingen met betrekking tot audiovisuele digitalisering, conservering en duurzame toegang."PrestoCentre Preservathons are two-day hands-on events developed around main themes and challenges in audiovisual digitisation, preservation and long-term access. During the first day, attendees will work together in small groups. Activities include workshops, roleplaying, demonstrations, presentations, writing and negotiation exercises (e.g. call for tender, SLA). Each Preservathon includes a competitive element. The second day is organised as a mini-conference including concise presentions and demonstrations of the results and experiences from the first day, a ceremony to award the winning group, and a short but informative review on the subject, incuding the state of relevant technology, related research, and open questions.

Around 2000, there was a widespread assumption that digitisation would solve most media preservation problems by making perfect digital copies onto new carriers as the need arose. However, it has become clear that there is no such thing as ‘everlasting’ data storage. Digital preservation requires the indefinite, error free storage of information, together with the means for its retrieval and interpretation, irrespective of changes in technologies, support and data formats, or changes in the requirements of the user community. Any choice of storage solution, therefore, involves careful consideration, needs assessment, long-term cost evaluation and so on. Where and when do vendors get involved and what do you need to know about them and their products before you make your decision"
