Written by  |  May 13, 2015

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.

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.

Written by  |  February 5, 2015
2014 was a big year for PBS, as it marked their 45th anniversary as a broadcaster. That wasn’t the only milestone for them though, as they also saw their content streamed millions of time and accessed in ways it had never been distributed or watched across the entire world.
