Storage DNA - 4K UHD Conform

Currently, the majority of productions will be finished at the HD resolution of 1920x1080 or 2K for cinema release. 4K to the home is now gaining momentum, with 4K content already available online via Websites such as NETFLIX® and YouTube®. This change is similar to the introduction of HD, at a time when most primetime productions were finished in standard definition from film.Before shows were shot in digital HD, HD finishing was accomplished with an offline/online workflow by re-conforming from the high-resolution film. Today a similar workflow can be achieved with digital camera masters using LTO with LTFS technology. Camera master data can be archived with LTO/LTFS and used for HD finishing with the conform from LTO process. In the future, the original camera master files can be re- conformed for a 4K finish at the highest quality.

LTFS-based solutions may be used to conform directly from LTO by using LTO tape as a raw master format. With suitable management software, conforming from LTO is a straightforward process. Driven by an AAF, XML or EDL from an editing system to identify the raw media from LTO tapes, conforming is used to bring back only the files that will be used in the finished piece. Compared to a traditional videotape-based workflow, conforming from LTO tape is far simpler and uses multiple-slot autoloaders for automated tape changes. Showing at IBC will also be :
