SCAPE Project - Digital Preservation into the Petabyte Dimension
SCAPE has released the short video SCAPE Project - Digital Preservation into the Petabyte Dimension giving an overview of the project on the SCAPE vimeo channel.
The idea behind the video is to explain what SCAPE is about to both technical and non-technical audiences. In other words, the overall outcomes and unique selling points of the project in a short and entertaining video.
DPC Award for Research and Innovation 2012
We are happy that Plato was shortlisted for the Digital Preservation Award 2010 and, as part of the planets project, won the DPC Award for Research and Innovation 2012. Watch the associated interview about the PLATO 3 project for the Digital Preservation Award 2010.
Quotes from the DPC members who voted for Plato:
We feel that the Plato tool has the potential to be very useful to organisations like ourselves and the digital preservation community as a whole
We felt that this project will be of relevance across the entire digital preservation community and will provide immediate, practical assistance to organisations with varying levels of experience of digital preservation.
The PLATO tool puts sophisticated preservation capability into the hands of a broader swathe of information specialists. There would seem to be great potential here for further integration and development with other tools and frameworks.
The value of Plato 3 lies in its applicability to a wide range of repositories and formats and the fact that it gives preservation and repository managers the confidence and tools to tackle what previously appeared as the very daunting task of preservation.
Staff at the Parliamentary Archives felt that this project demonstrated the clearest practical benefit to practitioners.
British Library short film
