If you are a broadcaster, media storage on tape is actually your friend. The newest standard – LTO-6 – can keep thousands of scenes, clips and other media. Of course, if you are a bigger production company, you will need larger appliances that can connect and maintain your LTO environment.
That is where Cache-A comes in. Calvin Zito talks to Cache-A Mark Ostlund about archiving to the network. Whether a Mac, PC or even most proprietary devices, Cache-A can keep it all in a safe, secure place. The ProCache 6 is one of their popular appliance. It has multiple connections to get content into your archive. It will also expand into robotic libraries if needed. With a staging archive option you can access the Cache-A archive system.
