I was at the annual Sports Video Group (SVG) Summit last week, and as usual, it was a great show focused on content management,and the use of technology to help enable the sports industry to provide entertainment to all of us.
It was humbling to see how some of our customers in this industry use our technology:
- 3 of the 4 major leagues in the USA store and manage their content – on Quantum
- 2 of the 4 college football teams in the playoffs manage their content – on Quantum
- This year’s world cup was broadcast – on Quantum
- The Olympics – both recently and the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo will be edited – on Quantum
And on and on. Quantum is woven into the fabric of sports entertainment, and we’re really proud to play our part in making the world a more connected place.
I had the privilege of speaking on this panel at the SVG Summit, and it was all about NVMe and other related technologies, and what they mean for sports video production. There was a lot of interest in NVMe, and I can see why.
As a new protocol for writing and reading data to flash, it will allow our customers to finally unlock the true performance potential of flash, dramatically reducing latencies, and also enabling our customers to migrate off of expensive fiber infrastructures to 100GbE networks.
For our sports video customers, this means reducing time to production, being able to distribute content more quickly across various platforms, all while reducing infrastructure costs.
It’s no wonder this recent article expects the NVMe market to be $80B by 2022, and we look forward to helping our customers adopt this revolutionary technology.
