Session G: Independent Panel—Protecting the Life of Content
Independent filmmakers may work alone but there are millions of them telling stories, educating, entertaining, preserving history, inspiring people, doing their part to change the world. Their numbers are growing and their talents are being honed because of low-cost 4K cameras, inexpensive/easy-to-use production tools and powerful desktop/notebook systems. Their challenge isn’t just storing their content but managing, controlling, tracking and protecting it. This session will explore their storage requirements – capacity, bandwidth, media management and beyond.
Moderator: Larry Jordan, Digital Production Buzz
· Woody Woodhall, Allied Post Audio
· Timothy Standing, OWC Holding
· Chris Bross, Drive Savers
· Cirina Catania, The Catania Group
