USCDR utilizes state-of-the-art, automated mass digitization systems to convert physical or analog content into the digital equivalent, which can be preserved and accessed from anywhere in the world.
USC Digital Repository
DigitizationWe can convert many common and unique types of physical and digital source material into a broad range of industry-standard digital formats.
PreservationWe are a trusted repository that maintains best-in-class operational practices and technical procedures to continuously monitor bits and ensure files are protected in the long-term.
StorageBecause we maintain several different systems for large-volume digital file storage, we can offer flexible, affordable options for both large and small collections or data sets.
AccessThe Repository is anchored by a strong technical backbone, powered by one of the nations' most powerful academic supercomputers.
Media & Performance Organizations
Do you need to put small libraries or extensive archives into a digital asset management system? Automated processing can digitize raw footage and finished productions cost-effectively. Cataloging records for a DAM or CMS can be created or converted, and we can safely store your files for access later.
Museum, Archive, Library Collections
Do you have recordings on film, video, or audiotapes that need to be digitized and stored? We expertly digitize most types of audio-visual materials, books, documents and other fragile source materials.
Researchers & Medical Institutions
Do you need a data retention plan for your scientific research, or a disaster recovery system for your medical records? We offer secure, controlled file access options adapted to your needs. Records can be stored safely for long-term retention, purged periodically, or destroyed when the retention term expires.
