Storage Workflows for 4K and Beyond
By Beth Marchant

Once upon a time, an editorial shop was a sneaker-net away from the other islands in the pipeline archipelago. That changed when the last
phases of the digital revolution set many traditional editorial facilities into swift expansion mode to include more post production services under
one roof.

The consolidating business environment in the post industry of the past several years then brought more of those expanded,
overlapping divisions together. That’s a lot for any network to handle, let alone one containing some of the highest quality and most data-dense sound and pictures being created today. The networked storage systems connecting them all must be robust, efficient and realtime without fail, but also capable of expanding and contracting with the fluctuations of client requests, job sizes, acquisitions and, of course, evolving technology.

There’s a “relief valve” in the cloud and object storage, say facility CTOs minding the flow, but it’s still a delicate balance between local pooled and tiered storage and iron-clad cloud-based networks their clients will trust.

Joe Beirne, CTO of Technicolor-PostWorks New York, is probably as familiar as one can be with complex nonlinear editorial workflows.

Storage Roundtable

Storage is the backbone of today’s workflows, from set to post to archive. There are many types of storage offerings from many different companies, so how do you know what’s right for your needs?

In an effort to educate, we gathered questions from users in the field. “If you were sitting across a table from makers of storage, what would you ask?”

The following is a virtual roundtable featuring a diverse set of storage makers answering a variety of questions. We hope it’s helpful. If you have a question that you would like to ask of these companies, feel free to email me directly at randi@postPerspective.com and I will get them answered.
