Digital storage plays a poignant purpose in a veteran media and party industry. Digital storage for a ME attention has approach characteristics mostly really opposite from standard IT storage since of a opening mandate of real-time video in capture, modifying and post-production as good as distribution. On a other hand, a ever flourishing repository of long-tail digital calm and augmenting digitized chronological analog calm is flourishing a approach for cold as good as comfortable repository regulating tape, visual discs and tough expostulate arrays. Tom Coughlin is a organizer of a annual Creative Storage Conference and publishes an annual news on digital storage in media and entertainment.
In early 2015, Coughlin Associates, Inc. conducted a consult of veteran media and party professionals on several digital storage topics. The consult was damaged down into several segments: calm capture, modifying and post-production, calm smoothness as good as archiving and digital preservation.

Increase in a constraint and use of aloft fortitude content, augmenting support rates and increases in a hours of calm prisoner for an hour of finished calm are vital drivers of video storage. It is approaching that singular video projects generating tighten to 1 Exabyte of tender information will start within 10 years.
When participants were asked about their use of approach trustworthy and network storage in digital modifying and post-production, a consult showed a following outline statistics in 2015.
- 85.1% had DAS (Direct Attached Storage)
– 89.1% of these had some-more than 1 TB of DAS
– 10 to 50 TB was a many renouned DAS distance (27.7%)
