"The increasing adoption of 4K-capable smartphones, tablets, TV sets and other viewing platforms, along with user expectations regarding video quality generally, has created a powerful and growing demand for digital content with higher resolution and frame rates," said Grossman. "Current storage infrastructures are often ill-equipped to handle the complexities of high resolution workflows, resulting in poor efficiency and inconsistent performance. The Quantum session at SMPTE15 will offer a roadmap for navigating obstacles that arise with this increased complexity and present a straightforward strategy for establishing efficient workflows -- from editing to content management to storage, delivery and archive."
