Digital Media Storage for Storing Digital Media & Assets

Digital Media Storage covers a broad industry sector from recording the raw footage to Post Production which finally produces a film, advert, documentary etc. The demand to provide very high-quality footage in the following formats 4K, 8K, 1080p, 360 and 3D all put a huge strain on the available storage resources through capacity, performance and resilience. Creating a 3D movie requires 2.5 times the disk storage that a conventional 2D movie needs.

Digital Media Storage for Archiving

A number of companies keep their data on hard disks, firstly this is not an archive medium, secondly, it's prone to damage.  Storing data in the cloud a good solution albeit expensive and costs can soon escalate.  The mainstay of the film industry is to store archive footage on LTO tapes which now with LTO-8 hold 12TB natively.  This is great but every few years you need to upgrade to the LTO format only allows reads up to 2 previous generations of LTO tape.
