Safeguarding the world's critical data.
Our imaging and data writing technology (i.e. that transfers the data to the piql Film through light modulation of the data – converting the data to super high-resolution QR-codes) is proprietary and protected through patents, trade secrets and copyrights. The reading technology is all based on open-source and license-free software and off-the shelf hardware. This is for the benefits of the clients for future data retrieval independently of specific vendors or technology. Piql is both patented and open-source
Piql is tested over time
The longevity and readback of data from piqlFilm have been tested by an external third-party laboratory (Norner in Norway - www.norner.no). This institute have been doing accelerated aging of the piqlFilm over the last 10 years, and a readback of data after an estimated 1000 years (with the piqlFilm stored at a temperature of 20°C and at 50% relative humidity) have been validated. At a temperature of 0° ± 2° C the life expectancy is more than 2000 years. As far as we have been able to verify, no other storage medium has been through such an extensive testing on durability or longevity.
