Event description

Description

In today’s post-production environment, we are dealing with higher bandwidth video data requirements with the advent of 4K/8K resolutions, 10/12 bit High Dynamic Range(HDR), High Frame Rate (HFR) 60/120fps,as well as RAW image capture. With the adoption of low cost IP infrastructure in the broadcast and data center environments versus the higher expense of fiber channel, does it make sense to look at alternative ways to manage their data workflows?

Our discussion will explain the differences between InfiniBand, GigE, Fiber Channel, and SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) and their use for data pipelines in high performance storage topologies. We will dive into the technical details of each and examine the evolution of 10GigE, 25GigE, 40GigE, 100GigE. Our panel will discuss the transition of 16GB, 32GB and 128GB Fibre Channel to IP. Is fiber Chanel still a viable storage fabric solution, and if so why? What is SAS and why is it of interest to today’s post environments? We will also discuss NVMe (SSD) drives and the appropriate data connections for high performance storage applications.

Our panel of vendors and users will cover the differences between the choices of storage/workflow pipelines, and at what point should you select one. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each option and how do other workflows like VFX and audio affect these choices?

Finally, we will wrap-up with an examination of some examples workflows from industry leaders who are pushing the envelope in post production workflows. You will have the opportunity to ask the panelists about their choices and why they chose these new technologies to solve their post production workflow problems.
