Exploring Workflow, Storage & Archive in M&E - Collaborating, Sharing and Presenting Media … Smarter
More than a few experts labeled 2014 as the “year of the breach”, and a list of all the companies that experienced security issues last year would be an entire article itself. Massive organizations are the ones that get the headlines when they experience a security issue, but companies that are infinitely smaller are just as vulnerable to breaches, if not moreso.
With the relaunch of ProVideo Coalition this year, we rolled DAM Coalition into a channel on PVC that focuses on workflow, storage and archive in media and entertainment. It was an opportunity to create relevant content for regular readers of PVC while also highlighting some of the more technically minded professionals from different areas of media & entertainment for the benefit of our current and expanded audience.
As I’ve been exploring what it means to effectively utilize workflow, storage and archive in our industry, I’ve seen these concepts go far deeper than I initially imagined. A workflow for a small post house might be very similar to what a workflow for a major studio looks like in principle, but in practice those workflows come together and function in a very different way. Similarly, having a storage capacity of 30TB might be more than some content creators need, while others are getting into exabyte levels and finding that’s still not enough.
