Conquering the Content Deluge

Add higher resolutions (2K, 4K+), higher frame rates (60fps, 120 fps), and the need to convert analog libraries to digital, and you have a major undertaking on your hands. Oh, and let’s not forget security and disaster recovery of all this valuable file-based content.
