Whether it’s Paramount Pictures or countless other leading media companies and institutions, they turn to Iron Mountain to protect their most critical assets - and make them accessible for future generations.
Secure Access and Distribution with a Trusted Partner
We know that an archive is a living thing. Access and distribution of key materials are an integral part of your business – especially in the complex world of today’s media marketplace.
A missed opportunity, a lost master or misplaced tape, can mean the difference between succeeding in a competitive market or falling behind. That’s why Iron Mountain has developed the archive industry’s leading digital archiving system that can ingest, preserve, and distribute your assets globally in digital or physical form. Our Digital Content Repository provides advanced tagging and metadata functionality, archive-wide preview, and controlled access – all while masters are never directly internet-accessible. You won’t need to worry about finding or distributing your assets ever again.
Future-Proof Your Archive
What does the future hold for your archive? As media formats change and digital technology continues to evolve, will your materials be obsolete? With Iron Mountain, media obsolescence is no longer an issue. Along with safety and preservation, your archive will be expertly migrated and managed in the ever-evolving digital world – all without you ever needing to research formats, transfer media, or pay for migration again. Once your assets are in our system you can be sure that your archive will always be available and secure – no matter how media formats change - now and into the future.
