So you have all of your footage, but where do you store it all? And how do you organize it? A shelf full of loose hard drives is not the answer to asset library management, and neither are expensive silos of proprietary platforms and storage. Designing an integrated, open-platform system that can manage content and assets throughout the workflow, from ingest to archive is critical to producing your final work.
MAM (media asset management) solutions to keep track of your growing hours and terabytes of content are available from a host of vendors, offering enterprise features that promise more efficient workflows and faster production. While effective, these enterprise features have only been available to just that – the enterprise. MAMs can be expensive and complex with long implementations, potentially putting them out of reach of the average media producer.
Maximizing productivity requires a reliable, available, easy-to-manage and easy-to-scale storage solution. When you consider that 4K video can require as much as 1.5TB per hour, it’s no surprise that falling short on capacity is a common issue. The ability to grow with your content can be hindered by a storage vendor’s scalability options, often requiring disruption or even expensive forklift upgrades.
The benefits of choosing the right asset management and storage solution are clear, but legacy solutions have typically been out of reach for most media professionals. A well-thought-out storage and media asset management solution that is tailored to your content workflows can revolutionize the way you and your team work.By enabling and simplifying the ability to search, discover, retrieve and collaborate, content can be at your fingertips and ready to work with in seconds. Lead time on content generation and delivery is dramatically reduced, enabling you to meet ever-growing consumer demand, deliver your content to market faster than ever before and drive new business opportunities and revenue.
