With both digital and historical formats like film and tape, the need for managing and preserving media assets has never been more complex:

  • Protecting your content from degradation, environmental hazards, unauthorized access and other threats.
  • Ensuring your content is in digital form and discoverable with proper metadata.
  • Whether to ‘integrate-and-preserve’ or ‘digitize-and-destroy’ physical media.

To safeguard both digital and physical content, turn to PRO-TEK Vaults.

White glove service

What sets PRO-TEK Vaults apart from other media preservation and archiving providers is white glove service, and we don’t mean just the gloves we wear to handle your assets. We start with understanding your vision for success and take it from there.

We’re big enough to offer comprehensive archiving capabilities and services, yet small enough to deliver personalized care, with attention to every detail.
