Digital Storage for Professional Media and Entertainment

Stereoscopic and higher resolution content are finding wider use in today’s digital media workflow from content capture, ingest, editing and post production, content delivery as well as archive and preservation. There is also a growing trend toward the use of network storage rather than direct attached storage for many performance-oriented M&E applications as the capabilities of storage networks has improved and costs have dropped.  This has also enabled collaborative video workflows dependent upon the distribution of video content through the “cloud.”  The development of the digital storage hierarchy to support these activities has led to the use of many types of storage devices including high capacity hard disk drives, performance hard disk drives, optical discs and magnetic tape.

Flash memory is emerging as another layer in the professional media storage hierarchy, particularly in rugged content capture devices as well as in high performance content delivery systems. In this SMPTE PDA Now educational webcast, our guest speaker Coughlin Associates' Tom Coughlin will provide an overview of these technologies and where they may best apply. In addition, some results from a recently completed survey of M&E professionals conducted by Coughlin Associates will be presented and compared to the 2009 SMPTE storage survey, to show current status and developing trends in this highly demanding and storage intensive industry.
