PRO-TEK developing sub-zero film storage facility

With Paramount Pictures

PRO-TEK Vaults, industry leader in film archiving and preservation, will develop a state-of-the-art storage facility for Paramount Pictures to preserve the studio’s iconic film library.

PRO-TEK and Paramount have been working together on a sub-zero storage environment that according to the Image Permanence Institute – a nonprofit, university-based laboratory devoted to preservation research – would allow for film collections such as Paramount’s to be preserved for hundreds of years.

Construction is expected to be completed during the second quarter of 2017. In addition, PRO-TEK will work closely with Paramount, providing film inspection, high-resolution scanning and other services for the studio’s ongoing curatorial and preservation efforts.
