Ground breaking advances in storage technology are paving the way to empower broadcasters to fully utilize IT storage systems. Taking advantage of state-of-the-art machine learning techniques, IT innovators now deliver storage systems that are more resilient, flexible, and reliable than at any time in the history of broadcast television.

This Essential Guide explains how modern storage infrastructure operates, and why. It delves deep into the technology to describe the benefits. And uses real broadcast applications and scenarios to deliver examples of how advanced storage helps broadcasters.

Editing, playout, archiving, and research all play vital roles in any broadcast facility. But each discipline makes different demands on the storage system. And a constant balancing act is required to consolidate speed, capacity, and cost.

This Essential Guide is aimed at anybody looking to improve their knowledge of advanced storage systems, understand how they work, and fathom the benefits on offer to broadcasters of all sizes.

Rapid advances in Artificial Intelligence has accelerated system failure-prediction to further advance reliability and resilience, an absolute must for any broadcaster wanting to survive in the 21st century and meet the ever-increasing demands of viewing audiences.
