Guest Speaker: Tom Coughlin, Coughlin Associates
Large rich media projects are getting ever bigger and raw content of multiple petabytes is becoming more common. Managing and protecting this content is a challenge and it is often a question whether backed up data can be recovered if the original copy is lost. Our presenter will explore developments in storage devices and systems used in modern digital workflows. These new developments are enabling accelerated collaborative media projects with ever larger source materials. Mr. Coughlin will also explore methods for creating, organizing and protecting rich media content including flash memory, local disk, digital tape and storage in the cloud.
