Recently, SlidesLive has announced their plans to release a new online library with an upgraded design, improved aesthetics and an easier-to-use interface. It’s all still in the works, and we’re excited to share it with you! But first, let’s take a deeper look at one of the library’s new features: eternal vaulting.

Why eternal vaulting?

SlidesLive records thousands of academic talks and conferences and stores them in the online library for public use. There are plenty of different video production companies that an event planner can hire to record their event; however, what makes SlidesLive different from the rest is their determination to educate people around the world on a range of topics, whether it be entrepreneurship, cybersecurity, information technology or anything else. The topics covered go on and on, and we want to make sure that information is never lost.

SlidesLive’s goal as a company is to create something of a 21st century Library of Alexandria. When the original library burnt down, hundreds of thousands of books were believed to have been lost. In the virtual world, there are different methods and safety measures we can take to preserve knowledge for future generations, and we plan to use the newest technology available to do so.

Our new virtual library will allow for even longer storage than we currently have, ensuring that people in the future can look back on the conferences and talks of today to learn more about the current era we’re living in, and that includes hybrid and all-virtual events. Anyone wondering how events worked during the COVID-19 pandemic can just click on a talk from that time and watch. It’s as simple as that.

How does it work?

SlidesLive has adopted a specialized optical disc to ensure talks and conferences can be preserved for over 1000 years, longer than ever before. Plus, in the future, we plan to experiment with methods that will let us preserve recordings forever, one of them being 5D optical data storage. We care about the protection of knowledge, and that means we’re ready to take on the newest technologies to further our mission.

Eternal vaulting is the ultimate goal, and we’re taking the next steps towards reaching it with the release of our new library. SlidesLive is a company that cares about the future of education and is willing to push all boundaries to improve it.

What’s next?

We’re going to take a deeper dive into all of the various features that SlidesLive’s new library will offer, so keep a lookout for more updates. The SlidesLive team wants you to take full advantage of our latest design, including player features, custom playlists and improved library sections and categories.
