Overview: This paper from Sun Microsystems explains a viable, scalable, cost-effective model is presented for using digital technology to archive filmed entertainment for the centuries-long duration now expected from, and achieved with film. This model is based on Commercial Off-The-Shelf technology; no special application software or systems are required. Acceptance of this paradigm shift will not come overnight. The hope in presenting this paper is to initiate serious discussion, examine and improve the model, and assist content creators in creating further revenue opportunities for the ever-more expensive content they create.
