Mediatex 0.9



Perennial archives means we provide the resources to overcome the technological obsolescence of supports and drives we use.


The perennial archival comes with 3 main objectives: conserve the document, make it accessible and preserve it’s understanding.

Geographical duplication

In order to mitigate natural and technological disasters, archives must be duplicated on several sites.


We shall consider that the ERMS becomes obsolete itself and we need to change it. A significant effort will be require to return archived content: compress, cut and send data using a media (support or network) and export the related meta-data. Archiving on supports make sense here as we just have to bring them back. Parsers designed to load the meta-data after updates offer a native software library usable to export them into any format.
