FIND HOW Digital Content will be Created, Protected and Stored from the executives, analysts and professionals at the forefront of Digital Technology!
SV 2013 explores the convergent needs of digital storage to support cloud content distribution and sharing, user generated content capture and use and professional media and entertainment applications.
Digital media size and bandwidth requirements are exploding with the use of higher resolution and stereoscopic content. 8K content capture projects such as the 2012 Summer Olympics point to the future of content capture and distribution. The growth in the size of digital media projects and the bandwidth requirements for content capture, post-production and delivery are increasing the use of fast storage technologies such as flash memory. At the same time the increase in the total volume of rich media content is driving demand for hard disk drives, optical discs and magnetic tapes used for near-line as well as archive media applications.
Mobile devices are driving the use of digital content and the growth of content, both commercial and personal, in the cloud. Storage systems for rich media are developing capabilities to support the growing traffic of content. Social networks as well as over the top video are expanding the options and capabilities to have access to all content, anywhere, at any time. These developments enable collaborative workflows as well as multiple format experiences on a variety of viewing devices. All elements of the digital media value chain are driving the next generation of storage. With the increase in the size of projects and the demand for performance we can truly say, “Petabytes are the new terabytes.”
