Object Storage for Preservation of Digital Video

By Sarah Cook, Director of Marketing, Caringo

Mon 18, 01 2021

To preserve digital video, you need the scalability, reliability, searchability and accessibility of Swarm object storage.

Every day more and more video is being produced—newsreels documenting historic events, epic series we binge watch, marvelous movies, documentaries and mocumentaries, DIY and product demos/promotion. There is an endless amount of video content that can be viewed with just a quick click.

Consider these statistics:

  • Mobile video consumption rises by 100% every year. (Insivia)
  • By 2022, online videos will make up more than 82% of all consumer internet traffic — 15 times higher than it was in 2017. (Cisco)
  • Users view more than 1 billion hours of video each day on YouTube. (YouTube)

Why Preserve Digital Video?

Preservation of digital assets often leads to longtail economic value for the owner, and video has become an increasingly important means of communicationeducationentertainment and historical documentation.

The case for preserving digital content is clear, but what is not so clear is the best way to store those assets and how to retrieve them when needed.
