We provide Digital Media Storage for recording raw footage for Post Production this 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 requiring massive scale capabilities, 500-1,000MB/s+ performance and highly reliable and resilient. Creating a 3D movie requires 2.5 times the disk storage that a conventional 2D movie needs.
The types of digital storage we provide is based on below:
Many of these systems are being deployed as primary, play out, tier 2 or backup storage for Avid, Final Cut Pro etc. The storage can be rack mounted starting from a simple 4 bay through to a 64+ bay RAID/MAID solution supporting up to 14TB disk drives. The RAID based Digital Media Storage also provides redundant SAS or Fibre Channel controllers, drives, fans & PSU.
We are now able to provide fully compatible Avid Shared Storage click here for details.
Many 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.
