There is a fundamental shift occurring in the media and entertainment industry that is the direct result of it migrating to an all digital world. It’s a shift that leaves no category untouched. Film, TV broadcast, video gaming, production and post production services are now tasked with managing very large files. These range from very large collaborative workflow data sets found in game, animation and CGI development to any number of digital intermediaries found in production and post production.
Production - Move from one-off tests to open collaboration with HPC facilities to create story elements never before seen.
Post Production - Improve collaboration and reduce costs. Go from tape based to file based with sound, picture and VFX, all centrally sourced for editorial, mixing, conforming and color correction.
Archiving - Store multiple versions and multiple file formats remotely at the most cost effective physical locations, end the asset management confusion in distribution and archiving.
