Preserving Digital Content—the Challenges, Needs, and Options

Sponsored by: NetApp

There is constant pressure on everyone in the visual industry to create, produce and distribute 4K and increasingly VR entertainment to awaiting audiences.  The most difficult part of these projects is making certain the video products (including all of the video assets) are still available 5, 10, 20 years from now. A creative project is never finished; it just runs out of time.  What processes are needed to ensure content owners can maximize their return on every frame of the digital film?  Find out about valuable developments in content archiving, automated metadata generation and asset management that will make sure that our content libraries are resilient, strong and useful.   This session will help you to map out a strategy for long term retention of precious professional content.
