How’s your media? Is it safe? Is it accessible?

Recording and production are rapidly moving into a file-based workflow with all the project materials—audio files, edits, plug-ins, automation, and video files—existing on spinning disks. During the project it’s necessary to keep track of the elements and after completion it’s vital to preserve all the work. But a project rarely remains untouched after submission so there is an increased need for media access and identification after the back-up to grab and re-purpose elements for a new job or revision. Our panel will discuss technologies including fiber, Ethernet, and cloud-based storage and retrieval for addressing the need to manage the exploding volume of media assets generated every day.
