Eight New IT Technologies That Are Changing Video Production
We haven’t always had IMAX theaters, 3D movies and augmented reality applications; this has only happened in recent years behind powerful servers, virtually unlimited storage, super-fast networks, lean code and ingenious new applications. Not anymore; a long list of new-gen laptops now are powerful enough to produce high-quality video for movies, video games and AR applications. In this eWEEK Data Point article, using industry information from Excelero VP of Corporate Marketing Tom Leyden and Pixit Media VP of Global Marketing Bob Murphy, we offer eight data center technologies that are enabling film and video creation teams here in 2018 to innovate, all the way from production to the streaming of films to your living room. Data Point No. 1: Ethernet Storage Fabrics: 25GbE, 50GbE or 100GbE. The advent of 4K and 8K video, and the demand for 4K/8K uncompressed playback by collaborators who are creating feature films, has forced organizations to reexamine whether their Fibre Channel networks can keep up.
Today, as ethernet storage fabricssurpass Fibre Channel speeds geometrically and at much lower cost, ESFs are increasingly prevalent at media & entertainment firms. Storage in remote clouds is playing an important role in enabling collaborative workflows and archiving, with 48 percent of professionals in the firm’s 2018 annual survey using cloud-based storage for editing and post production. Video projects shot in the past few years can easily require more storage than decades of older assets combined, yet assets rarely can be deleted. Transparent tiering solutions move assets from expensive production storage to low-cost archival storage and provide analytics and insight into the asset and help to move data to the tier that meets the cost and accessibility requirements. Given extensive legacy applications, media and entertainment organizations often meet storage requirements by building multi-tier storage infrastructures and implementing hybrid cloud strategies.
They migrate data from POSIX protocol-based systems to object and cloud protocol-based systems, and once migrated, assets are stored in industry standard formats; applications can read data directly from object and cloud storage, without having to re-migrate assets back to primary storage. New film and video production formats are driving processing and throughput requirements by orders of magnitude every couple of years, and media organizations have no choice but to keep pace so they can monetize content assets as long as possible. With a software-defined infrastructure, studios can keep up with ever-expanding requirements in server, network and NVMe storage technology without having to disruptively tear out gear and start all over again.
