Visiting broadcasting trade shows is always a very humbling experience as these shows make you realize how little you know about the larger media and entertainment industry. I couldn’t say one smart thing about the newest UAV’s, drones, quad or octo-copters except for they look like fun toys. Which is the best green screen technology? Who’s the leader in mobile satellite dishes? Fortunately the Scality team knows a whole lot about video storage. Even stronger: I’d dare to say we have become an authority when it comes to building high-performance origin storage infrastructures, massive scale long-term archives and low-latency nearline.

100x the amount of raw footage per production. 13 to 26 episodes online at the same time (e.g. House of Cards). 2.5 billion video-ready smartphones and growing. I don't even have to say anything about growing video resolutions (4K, 6K, 8K) and it's already clear that I'm talking about the New And Bigger Show!
