Join StudioDaily, Quantum, StorExcel and Citizen Pictures for a discussion of the key issues facing facilities looking to take the next steps in efficient, powerful storage infrastructure that supports the next generation of broadcast standards.
You'll learn about:
•Managing growth for bigger workloads with more edit suites
•Getting ready for 4K, HDR, and OTT-friendly formats
•Combining SAN and NAS to get the best of both
•Managing and monitoring your system
•Archive, reuse and remonetization of content
Denver's Citizen Pictures is a production company in growth mode. Since landing Food Network's hit show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives in 2011, the company has been expanding its capabilities, abandoning tape-based acquisition in favor of Sony PXW-FS7 cameras and retiring its Xsan storage system to make way for Quantum Xcellis shared storage. With a production slate that includes new shows like Destination America's Smoked -- the competitive BBQ series is shot with six cameras that generate 10 TB of footage per episode -- and 4K deliveries looming on the horizon, the facility's infrastructure has to be robust for today's workloads, scalable to meet the delivery standards of tomorrow, and affordable to stay on budget.
