Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Exploring New Frontiers in Video Surveillance for Healthcare Organizations

Soon, you may run into Apple’s Siri or Amazon’s Alexa (or an equivalent, unnamed intelligent personal assistant technology) at your local hospital.

Addressing Challenges for the Hollywood Post-Production Community

The SMPTE 2017 Annual Technical Conference & Exhibition was held October 23–26 in Hollywood, California, providing an ideal opportunity to showcase the latest Quantum solutions for professionals in the film and television post-production industry. New compression formats, 4K mastering, more complex workflows, growing content libraries—these were some of the many subjects discussed over the course of the event. An end-to-end workflow featuring StorNext® 6 shared storage and data management software plus Xcellis® high-performance storage appliances addresses each of these challenges.

StorNext 6 is the latest generation of Quantum’s shared storage and data management solution.

Besides having a cool name, I wanted to hear exactly why it is a “must have” for content creators. Logically, I went to Greg Holick, our director of cloud storage solutions at Quantum and our resident FlexTier expert. Below are excerpts of our discussion about FlexTier and why it’s a real game-changer.
