Industry studies suggest that only about 20% of all digital data is ever accessed or used again after it is stored. Yet, the demand to produce more content is driving many media managers to seek better ways to store, search and retrieve enormous volumes of archival content to help build productions. A key partner technology in this quest should be active archiving.
Most data reaches archival status in 90 days or less. IDC estimates that by the end of 2025, only 15% of the data in the global data-sphere of 163 zettabytes will be tagged and only 20% of that will be analyzed. Therefore, if 80% of the data created is never analyzed, that data will likely reach archival status upon creation. Don’t feel helpless. Solutions are discussed in the article, “The Benefits of Active Archiving.”
With the whole media industry transitioning to an IP infrastructure, a major destination for attendees to IBC2018 will be five days of the IP Showcase and the IP Showcase Theater hosted for the second year by the Alliance for IP Media Solutions (AIMS) and fellow industry organizations.
The IP Showcase will have more than 60 vendors with over 100 pieces of equipment, all displaying state-of-the-art IP technology.
Also not-to-be-missed is the IP Showcase Theatre, which will host 30 hours of live presentations on IP technology. There will even be a Super Session on IP test and measurement.
Each day of the Theatre will have presentations about actual IP implementations, 10 in total. These will include; the BBC Wale’s new Cardiff Central Square, Telemundo, that has gone on air with SMPTE 2110 and stories from the FIFA World Cup broadcasts. Learn more about scheduled presentations for both the Showcase and Theatre in the article, “IP Showcase Returns to IBC 2018.”
