Many digital collections are often, by their historical nature, held in a range of quite dated formats. Over time, the technology and specific equipment to view and support unique material can become less readily available, or be withdrawn from manufacture altogether.
Typical content ranges from large format maps and bound volumes to photographs and audio visual content, such as VHS and 35mm film. This presents a real barrier when it comes to sharing and accessing historical and diverse digital material, putting it at risk of being lost altogether.
Consequently, PastView has been developed with format and flexibility in mind. Whatever your content, we can transfer it to digital format so it can be discovered and accessed for generations to come.
