HP has announced the launch of Paul McCartney’s private cloud-based digital library.
McCartney’s collection currently includes more than one million items, including photographs; video footage from live concerts; rolls of film, videotapes and reels; music recordings; original works of art; as well as memorabilia. HP says McCartney’s personal assets are now digitised.
“It’s really exciting because even if I’m out on tour anywhere in the world, I will be able to say, okay, ‘Wings 1976 tour’ and instantly, it will come up. You’ve got all the information, all the photos from it. And you’ll have written accounts – personal accounts and critical accounts – of what happened,” said McCartney.
“We are demonstrating how an Instant-on music organisation can be achieved to create, manage and distribute content to an increasingly connected world,” said Jan Zadak, executive vice president, Enterprise Sales and Marketing, HP.
