Workflow

Capture

On set or in the field, your memory cards get filled with precious footage, images, and audio. To get that data to the safety of the editing bay, first transfer it from memory cards to either a portable drive or RAID solution integrated with your DIT cart.

Key Considerations

reliability | portability | capacity

Workflow

Edit

For video post-production, storage has to have enough capacity to consolidate all the project content, and fast enough to let you work with your footage at the highest resolution possible. For photography, choose reliable storage that’s fast enough to let you browse your entire Lightroom® library without lag. For audio, when you’re mixing up to 100 tracks simultaneously, storage performance is clutch.

Key Considerations

performance | capacity | reliability

Workflow

Deliver

Crossing the finish line means getting your completed project to the client or to a sharing platform. Simplify the transfer of small files by providing your customer FTP or remote access to a NAS (private cloud). Ensure safe delivery of big projects, such as 4K or higher videos, by storing them on tough, universally compatible portable drives—and simply ship them.

Key Considerations (Portable Drive)

reliability | portability | compatibility

Key Considerations (NAS)

reliability | accessibility | performance

Workflow

Archive

The last step in any creative project is moving it to long-term storage. Small outfits might store the project on a clearly labelled DAS, archiving it onto a shelf. As your storage needs grow, however, it becomes more cost effective (and easier to manage and protect) if completed projects get stored on a RAID, NAS, or even SAN storage with purpose-built archive HDDs.

Key Considerations

reliability | cost | capacity
