Sven Schönauer: Introduction to the long-term storage of digital images
Wed, 30.11.2011 6 pm

A data record cannot be considered without auxiliary means. The digital image has existed for the last 30 years. There are many losses, and the images that have survived are models for present-day strategies for the long-term archiving of data. One has learned from mistakes. Clearly, over the course of time, many developments have flowed into technologies. One such development has been the currently much-discussed “Cloud”. The basis for digitalization, color management, helps to generate and evaluate digital image files. To select the right data format and to store it on an appropriate medium are basic steps and means of storage.

Sven Schönauer is a professional business administrator. He has been working for the company recom GmbH & Co.KG for the last fifteen years – for the previous two decades one of the most renowned and high-performance Artwork/Post- and CGI-Studios in Europe, with offices in Stuttgart (Head Office), Berlin and London. He also works at the Stuttgart State Academy of Art and Design as lecturer for picture recording technologies, for the course “Conservation of New Media and Digital Information”.
