The media industry is the one industry that is growing at a rapid pace. The growth of this industry has grabbed the attention of the masses. There is hardly any industry for which the media industry is not important as every industry is dependent on it for one reason or the other.

The problem that most of the people face is saving the media documents such as newspapers and magazines for a long time as the quality of these documents degrades with time. Previously, there was no way to save these important documents for the future that makes people worried. However, with the advancement in technology digitization technique was developed that makes it easier for people to save their important documents for an infinite time.

You all know that keeping a text file in a computer for a long time does not degrades its quality. With the advent of digitization technique, media management no longer remains a difficult job.
