KEEP - Keeping Emulation Environments Portable
In the KEEP project, an emulation platform has been developed which is designed to reproduce static and dynamic objects as precisely as possible: text, sounds, images, multimedia documents, websites, databases, video games etc. Long-term accessibility of the cultural heritage has been ensured by the development of flexible access tools and the storage of a wide range of digital objects.
The project also included the development of an emulation framework which manages different emulators and triggers them automatically. A legal study investigated the underlying conditions for emulation in Europe, focusing particularly on the handling of disk images and their use for long-term preservation. Other aspects of the research included metadata for long-term preservation and the development of a virtual machine for simplifying the porting of emulators.
