Three Key Takeaways from a New CMMA Survey on Corporate Video Trends

The days when corporations farmed out all video production projects to outside agencies are coming to an end. As the costs of cameras and production systems fall, and a greater number of employees have the requisite skills for producing professional-quality videos, more and more corporations are building in-house teams. Keeping video production in-house can not only reduce costs, but also enhance agility and maximize control over content.

No Shortcuts. No Doubts. The Story Behind Quantum’s 4K Testing.

StorNext-based solutions deliver superior performance for film and video workflows because StorNext is a tunable, parallel file system that works as fast as block-level storage. This is possible because StorNext features native client software for Linux, Mac OS, and Windows workstations. That means there are tunable parameters for the clients and the servers that coordinate simultaneous access to files. Prior to any large-scale testing like this, it is important to set a baseline by verifying that these parameters perform optimally with the latest hardware and networking technologies.

Collegiate Sports Video Production Ups Their Technology Game

My favorite time of the year is March Madness. As a basketball fan, I can’t help but appreciate the most exciting month of the year when the top Division 1 basketball teams play in a sudden-death style tournament to claim the NCAA national championship. It could be anyone’s last game, and unlike professional sports, college athletes don’t get this time in their lives back, which makes the sweat and tears you see after each game that much more thrilling.

Broadcast, Cable, IP: Which Will Win the Race to 4K Ultra HD Delivery?

As much as technology companies would like to believe that they are serving a global market, in reality tech adoption varies widely by region. What happens in London isn’t always what happens in Toronto, much less what happens in Seoul or Mumbai. The adoption of 4K is happening much faster than it did for HD, even though 4K is pulling along other data-intensive technologies: high dynamic range (HDR), high frame rates (HFR) and 10-bit or greater color depth. Now that 4K displays are available worldwide, the question turns to 4K Ultra HD content delivery: by broadcast, by cable, by satellite, or by IP? This challenge is even greater in Asia, where content delivery varies more by locale than in other regions.
