Preserving Video with Vimeo On Demand

Preserving Video with Vimeo On Demand

30 June, 2015

Inevitably hard drives will fail. Files become corrupt. I was looking for a way to make sure the footage taken with our Art After X project is preserved. Tape and salt mines weren’t a viable option, so I was excited to discover Vimeo on Demand. For about $200 a year I can upload 20GB of video a week. So I thought why not offer the complete interviews for a small fee to cover the storage space?

Granted, it’s a compressed version that’s uploaded, but in the event the original is lost before completing the project, there will be a backup.
