It also houses private vaults, that are not available in other European IMES’ sites. The facility can house both physical asset storage and digital solutions ranging from asset digitisation and transfer, metadata creation and enrichment, and digital preservation and distribution through IMES’ Smart Vault platform.

The company’s clients include French broadcaster Canal+ as well as IMG.

“We are thrilled to be opening our newest media storage facility in Paris at a time when our entertainment clients are actively mining their content archives for monetisation opportunities,” said Hanna Balouka, head of client partnerships, France.

“This storage facility is built to world-class sustainability standards and will provide the French market with a much-needed option for premium, secure, climate-controlled media storage. The building features state-of-the-art energy efficiency measures, consistent with Iron Mountain’s commitment to meet ambitious net-zero targets. IMES also offers volume and specialised digitisation and digital storage, so now clients’ materials don’t ever have to leave the safety of the IMES environment.”
