(Hudson, Massachusetts--November 7, 2013) Today Facilis Technology, a leading provider of shared storage and archiving solutions, announced that company Vice President Jim McKenna is set to present on data redundancy for 4K workflows at Content and Communications World (CCW) 2013 – a premier communications technology conference held annually in New York City. Taking place November 13-14, 2013, CCW draws well-respected leaders and experts from around the world to discuss the latest trends in media, entertainment and communications technology; business solutions for content creation, management and delivery; and more.
On Wednesday, November 13, 2013 from 4:15-4:45pm EST in Hall 1C of the Javits Convention Center in New York, McKenna will provide CCW attendees with an overview of workable data resiliency strategies to secure sensitive file-based media – from proxy encodes and RAW 4K to uncompressed DPX – in modern-day post production and content creation environments. Throughout the presentation he’ll give attendees an inside look at the hardware backend of a resilient shared storage workflow, offer tips on tracking media through various phases of production and cover restoration practices for data recovery or as a part of the finishing workflow.
“Constantly evolving file-based camera acquisition formats have made data management more complex than ever before, and CCW provides an excellent forum for the industry to address the new set of challenges brought on by these changes,” said Jim McKenna, VP, Facilis. “As a storage developer with experience researching and configuring systems, I look forward to sharing my personal experiences with CCW attendees and offering up advice on best practices for managing their most important assets. I’m excited to show attendees how they can create a simplistic storage hierarchy to obtain real data resiliency.”
CCW serves as a forum for professionals in the content development and delivery space to gather and share first-hand experiences and insights on emerging trends, forecasts, and technologies.
