8:15 AM Session A: Living in Interesting Times: Changing Needs and Sources
for Rich Content Storage
Sponsored by Hie Electronics
Moderator: Pallab Chatterjee, Media and Entertainment Tech
There appears to be no limit to the storage requirements needed for rich content creation and production. Higher content resolution and frame rates can generate petabytes of content captured today in a single video production project but with continued growth in resolution and frame rates we will likely see exabytes in the not distant future. What are the storage and bandwidth requirements for stereoscopic and high definition content capture? What storage devices work best in which video production environments? What are the requirements for animation and special effects creation? What will the future hold for content capture and creation? This session will give you information that you will need to create tomorrow’s blockbusters and award winning content.
9:45 AM Morning Break
10:30 AM Session B: Post Production Never
Sleeps: Storage Challenges and Opportunities in Video Editing
Sponsored by Hitachi Data Systems
Moderator: Larry Jordan, Digital Production Buzz
A vast pool of captured and created content requires
sophisticated and high quality storage to support video editing and other
post-production tasks. Video production and post-production don't just
use storage, they inhale it. However video editing requires streaming video
quality and latencies that are very different from requirements for traditional
enterprise storage. In addition economic factors favor the creation of
more collaborative workflows that space distance and time creating a role
for networked and on-line storage as well as semiconductor storage to speed
performance in modern post production. This session displays the challenges
facing post product ion, with reports from end-users, and storage developers.
Find out what is required now and what is projected for the future.

Moderator: Devendra Mishra, MESA
More formats, more channels and bigger pipes are changing the storage hierarchy in content delivery. Flash memory and storage tiering are playing a significant role in content delivery systems. At the same time HDDs and tape serve as high performing storage libraries for video on demand, cable and satellite distribution and various methods of internet and mobile phone distribution. What will be the role of cloud storage and local storage and hybrids of these two technologies in a complex content delivery environment?. What is the future of physical content delivery? What will shortages of HDDs due to content libraries? Determine the storage tools for content monetization from the information you will learn in this session.
