Since 1967, AV recordings of the Montreux Jazz Festival bring together the greatest musicians of the 20th century. The collection was digitized in a collaboration between EPFL and the Claude Nobs Foundation. As part of the project, EPFL uses an Object Storage System to store and manage the collection of live music, video, and data. Registered by UNESCO in the Memory of the World program, the archive is the most comprehensive collection of live music footage ever created. The Montreux Jazz Digital Project aims to preserve this heritage in a unique archive of "raw material" for researchers.
