The CineSave project was initiated to investigate cinematographic film as a digital storage medium for long-term preservation of film productions. In the digital age, such archiving methods are urgently required, since many films are highly valuable from both economic as well as cultural points of view. The CineSave approach uses “Bits on Film” to store the digital data. In addition, even hybrid approaches have been suggested which allow storing analog and digital information on the same medium. This paper describes the project results of the CineSave project as well as possible further developments which go beyond the scope of the actual project.
