From AI to Virtual Reality - How Storage is Shaping the Future of Media & Film
Hollywood has been innovating for over a hundred years, and storage has been along for the ride. With the onset of the digitization of film, moving from HD to 8K and eventually 16K film, file sizes are soaring! A film that once generated 112GB an hour may soon reach 86TB. Therefore storage has leaped to the forefront of film, becoming a critical factor in how movies are archived, streams are stored, and how much broadcasts and movies will cost.
Jeff Greenwald, Director Sales, M&E; Erik Weaver, Global Director of M&E; and Hal Woods, VP & CTO Data Center Systems of Western Digital as they discuss:
- The Age of Digitization & Future Trends in M&E
- How Technology Transforms the Future of Film
- Storage Solutions for the Future of Film
From the movie set, through the camera, to the big screen, or little screen, it’s time we included ‘storage’ in our closing credits.

In the digital age, data does more than just drive the business forward – for many organization data is the business. Data storage architectures must provide a number of key capabilities to match the importance of data. Resilient architectures which can minimize the impact of system and component level failures will be needed. Data storage must also have composability to adapt to the rapidly changing performance needs of workloads. The lifecycle management of these systems must also be improved to allow rapid deployments, capacity additions, while reducing the day-to-day management burden for infrastructure professionals, while reducing operational costs.
Please join OSNEXUS, Western Digital and 451 Research’s Henry Baltazar, Research Director, Storage on June 10th, 2021 for a webinar in which we will be discussing the future requirements for data storage.
