How we store data on piqlFilm ?

Binary code:
Digital storage is about writing binary data, i.e. 0’s and 1’s, to a physical storage medium. What kind of storage medium you decide to use, depends on variables such as your needs for data capacity, data lifetime, access and cost. Even cloud storage suppliers write your data as a string of 0’s and 1’s to a physical medium located in a data center somewhere in the world.

High resolution QR codes:
This binary code is converrted to grey pixels that are then written to film in four levels of grey, with 8 million data points per frame. Each film has capacity for 120 GB.

Piql’s technology is built on open source principles to ensure information needed to access the data is never locked away or reliant on proprietary software. All information needed to recover the information including source code, file format specifications and instructions for building technology is stored on each piqlFilm alongside the data in human readable text.
