Broadcast Media Content Challenges

Broadcast media content presents many challenges. Live broadcasts are unforgiving when things don’t go as planned. Recorded content has its difficulties, too. Whether it’s a recording or content you must quickly edit on the fly, the quality of broadcasting equipment—including storage—can make or break a production.

Storage for Broadcasting Content

Broadcasting professionals understand the need for high-performance content acquisition and content distribution technologies, especially when it comes to storage. Yet many broadcasting teams have learned to accept compromise when it comes to their storage solutions:

  • Slow performance, particularly as storage scales larger
  • Too much complexity and management, reducing the resources you could spend on creating compelling broadcasting content
  • Unpredictable reliability and availability, with frequent unplanned downtime, time-consuming system reboots, long redundant RAID rebuild times, and even lost data
