Project Overview

The main Deliverable of the PrestoSpace Project is to develop and launch actual facilities and services for audiovisual preservation.

The project starts these preservation factories by preparing the business plan, contacting potential investors and working with commercial partners to set up the actual services. These services exploit the technological and industrial results of the project. A strong economic factor supporting these preservation factories is a commitment by the major PrestoSpace consortium members to use these services.
