Max Post / Original Production’s show Deadliest Catch has over 30,000 hours of footage each season – and Key Code Media engineered a way to store, search, and retrieve every minute of it.

Key Code Media storage solutions – many tools to fit your production.

With dozens of storage choices, it becomes easy to get lost in all the various technical details when selecting video production storage. Specific choices like SAN or NAS, volume locking or file locking, and RAID types will likely shape the way your video production operates. Determining protocols, such as Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, Fibre, and iSCSI will shape the speed and bandwidth of your shared storage network. Key Code Media can help guide you and differentiate between the multitude of choice…and to understand storage terminology, and how it will affect a video production. We want to not only provide you with the technology but ensure you understand it’s nuances as well.

We’ll help guide you to the most efficient and scalable solution for all of your assets, including high throughput spinning disk, Tier II, and LTO tape libraries, cloud solutions, and deep archive.

Solutions include:

  • Dailies Storage & Archive
  • SAN/NAS Storage & Archive
  • Second-Tier Storage
  • Object Oriented Storage
  • Big Data Storage
  • LTO LTFS Archive
  • Optical Disc Archive
  • Cloud Storage & Archive Workflow

Have you thought about…?

  • How much storage space do I need?

    With RAID protection and overhead for performance, how much space do you need for your fast storage, your backup storage, and your archive?

  • How fast does my storage need to be?

    Do you need solid state drives (SSDs), or spinning disk?  Are you connecting via 1 Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 8 Gigabit fibre, or higher?

  • What’s my backup and archival strategy?

    Where do I put dated content? Spinning disk, LTO tape, or in the cloud? How do I track the various copies?

  • Is my storage future proofed?

    Can I easily expand my storage?

  • How do I administer the storage?

    Does your storage require a full-time administrator, or can it be managed by in-house resources?

  • Is the storage tuned for my applications?

    Some applications retrieve media from one storage solution over another.  Some storage solutions provide NLE project sharing as well.

Key Code Media partners with these leading vendors to provide complete workflow solutions.

“Storage is one of the most misunderstood technologies out there, and I find the more education a client has, the better informed decisions they make.”
