Over a period of seven years Sound and Vision, EYE Film Institute, the National Archives and Kennisland preserved over 90,000 hours of video, 20,000 hours of film, some 100,000 hours of audio and 2,500,000 photos. The digitised material is now being reused for numerous purposes, from lesson material and Wikipedia to apps and services for the creative industry. Images for the Future has played a pioneering role in both the development of large-scale digitisation processes and the thinking on the role of heritage organisations in our digital society.
