Long-term storage of feature films and broadcast programming has been a costly and frequently ineffective process. Rather than shooting analog film or video tape and converting it to digital for post-production work, the entertainment industry is embracing all-digital processes from the initial capture through post-production, distribution, and even projection. The convergence of these two dynamics, in addition to the economic and productivity benefits, is driving the media and entertainment industry to implement digital media content archives. Libraries of film and video content no longer need to be stored off-line in a large vault. They can be maintained in a single, scalable, digital archive system, helping production houses to complete projects on time and under budget.
