“Iron Mountain was a great choice when we worked on our consolidation effort to bring materials from all over the world … They had the expertise and knowledge to actually pull something of that magnitude off.”
-Andrea Kalas, Vice President Studio Archives, Paramount Pictures
When Paramount Pictures sought to consolidate its priceless collection of movie memorabilia and media assets spanning 100 years of entertainment history, Iron Mountain was there to help. Originally spread over 26 locations worldwide, Paramount’s goal was to streamline and preserve its massive dispersed archive and take it into the digital age. With logistical support and technological expertise from Iron Mountain, the collection is now housed in three secure locations - and for the first time fully accessible worldwide.
“The Bettmann Archive contains 11 million images … We were challenged with preserving the collection and providing access to it. The partnership that was created with Iron Mountain enables us to achieve that.”
-Ann Hartman, Manager of Library and Records Management, Corbis
The Bettmann Archive contains some of the world’s most recognizable photographic images – from Marilyn Monroe to Rosa Parks to a work crew perched on a girder above New York City. When Corbis Images acquired the Bettmann Archive in 1995, the challenge was to provide access for Corbis’ client base to this historic trove of images. Working with Iron Mountain, Corbis was able to manage the digitizing and archiving efforts for this massive collection and provide worldwide access to this rich legacy of historically significant visual images.
