  • Subject: Reliability and Cost Considerations for Building a Video Archive System
  • Presenter: Dan Jaramillo, SpectraLogic

For media companies large and small, digitizing and archiving an entire library of video assets can be a daunting task.

Archive solutions currently in use run from video tapes to spinning disks to external drives on shelves to computer tape systems. Determining the best solution for your needs can be confusing.

Finding the right solution is important. These video assets are at the core of a company’s business, so taking care of them and providing a suitable long-term storage solution is critical.

This presentation will review:

  • A model environment
  • The cost of maintaining legacy video technology
  • Digital Tape, Disk, Flash & Cloud
  • OPEX cost considerations
  • Staying current with new generations

Managers Dinner starting at 6:00pm. SMPTE Members and guests are invited to attend.
