It’s no secret that technology has changed the way media & entertainment professionals operate across the board.

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.

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.
