With respect to the forward compatibility of the Multivista archived product, obviously there will be changes / developments in technology which are a) impossible for us to predict and b) outside of our control. That said, we do our utmost to ensure that the current generation of Multivista deliverable will be readable for the next several decades. Specific steps include:
- Retention of Digital Originals – While projects only remain online for 6 months past the completion date, unless explicitly requested by the client, Multivista endeavors to retain the digital originals of all photos, floorplans and associated data. These digital originals are moved into a long terms storage archive, which typically allows us to resurrect projects in the future when clients lose their archived copies, want to add new content etc. The retention of the digital originals is a further hedge to ensure that clients are not left without records, 30 years on.
