Our Technology

Our Story

We lost our data.

To be exact, we had the data; we just couldn’t see it or use it. We were a couple of academics working on a research project. We wanted to revisit old data to compare it with our new research, but the files were in a proprietary format, and the software that created them had become extinct.

Fast-forward to hours spent manually migrating old files from one format to another and translating old programs to new systems, knowing that the perpetual flood of new versions and platforms makes obsolescence inevitable, so we’d likely do it all over again in the future.

There had to be a better way.

We quickly realized this problem is universal. Myriad file formats —from images, to emails, to PDFs, to videos, to CAD drawings, to GIS maps—being used today run the risk of becoming unreadable in the future, while others are difficult to access because they were created with expensive or proprietary or niche software.

But what if we converted the application instead of the data? Then we could access data without migrating it from one system to another, paying new licensing fees, and experiencing conversion loss.

That’s what our technology does. We make your data accessible and usable, now and forever.

Our Technology

Simply put, Bevara Preserve software future-proofs your data. Our patented data packaging system ensures your datafile is secure and useable, regardless of how or when it was created.

It’s Simple

Our integrated platform extracts native file data and packages it with its metadata in an open-source BVR container.

It’s Accessible

BVR containers include a platform-independent file reader, eliminating the need for specific applications to access file data.

It’s Versatile

Our software packages a wide range of image, video, audio, database, and document file types, and integrates easily with your current asset management system.

It’s Scalable

Package one file—or one thousand—in seconds.

It’s Flexible

One-click data extraction makes it easy to use original file data in other applications. You can also edit and add new metadata.

It’s Effortless

Access and provide content seamlessly and securely with our free Bevara Access player.

Media-specific licenses are available. Contact support@bevara.com to discuss your requirements or to try a demo.
