Presented by Liz Davis – Director, Media Workflow Group–Media & Entertainment, Diversified
Disaster Recovery is a term that has evolved in the Media & Entertainment industry over the last few years. Iron Mountain and LTO was the brain trust. But, as we become more “one world”, how can we ensure that disaster recovery is accessible and efficient across the globe? What does the cloud offer, and how tangible? And to be truly a disaster recovery option, what is the ROI in our libraries?

By Megan Cater, Senior Manager of Digital Content at Signiant Increasingly over the past few years, IT managers in the M&E sector have had to juggle a far more complex storage landscape, mostly due to the massive surge in data witnessed in the industry. Trends — like the continued increase in frame and resolution rates, the rapid adoption of virtual/augmented reality, and the massive amounts of raw footage capture required for reality-based programming, sports events and feature films — are generating much larger files. And newer storage technologies have emerged to handle them. Not only do IT managers have to keep up with evolving storage technologies, they have to understand how each will interact with their entire software stack and if they will support both short and long-term business goals. The result often includes an array of tiered storage types that, for many companies, are distributed across multiple on-premises locations as well as across different cloud providers and regions. Often the larger the company (or for companies that have been through mergers and acquisitions) the more complex the situation. In those cases, IT managers can face storage and software incompatibilities along with different legacy, active and new storage solutions from...
Nick Pearce-Tomenius (Sales & Marketing Director, Object Matrix) Never before has media content been quite so valuable. With increasing competition and consumer appetite for content anytime anywhere, broadcasters and content producers are under increasing pressure to deliver the right content at the right time. It is surprising therefore that so many media companies have not even considered a disaster recovery plan, let alone implemented one. Just how important is disaster recovery and how do you implement a plan that’s automated and integrated into the way you work today? Changing Landscape Technology has evolved more in the past 20 years than it has in the last 2 centuries.

Or, should I ask, ever wondered, or forgotten, what it was like when it was just a box with five channels and a broken remote control? The consumer experience is constantly changing. The audience is no longer impressed with a remote control (broken or not), or the ability to rewind television. The creation of multiplatform delivery has upgraded expectations once...
