I'm Jack Orlandi, Penn State. Years ago we modified the VaTech code. At that time the Grad school decided upon PDF's only as they worried about future conversion support of 'todays' digital formats.

How are others handling the 'conversion' concern? How do you, or your vendors, guarantee that at a point in the future you will be able to present an image, video, etc?

Thanks.
