Maybe It’s Time to Dial Down the Flash

There’s no doubt that post-production and animation/visual effects (VFX) studios need strong storage performance for a variety of demanding tasks. Facing extremely tight deadlines, your editors, colorists, artists, and other team members need a responsive experience—even as they work with multiple streams of large 4K media files at high frame rates.

Putting StorNext To The Test

Video technology is evolving at lightning speed. Now that high definition is ubiquitous, there’s an ever-growing demand for the high picture quality and smooth motion associated with 4K ultra-high-definition (UHD) video formats. An increasing number of production houses have made the switch to 4K workflows—and if your team isn’t already working in 4K, it’s only a matter of time before it’s part of your portfolio.

So, You’ve Bought a 4K Camera. Now What?

Whether you’re creating customer-facing product videos for your marketing team or training videos for sales, your in-house video production team needs to deliver high-quality media that maximizes the viewers’ interest and engagement. For now, you might be delivering that video in high-definition (HD) or even standard-definition (SD) format. But you can see the future—and the future is 4K.

Three Key Insights into the Future of VFX: Results From a Quantum and postPerspective Survey

Visual effects (VFX) and post-production studios are facing rapidly rising demand for compelling visual content. To boost audience excitement and heighten engagement, directors and producers are incorporating an increasing number of VFX shots into their projects. Meanwhile, consumer interest in more immersive experiences are opening doors for VFX and post-production studios to investigate virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), 360-degree video, and other innovative technologies.
