In the media and entertainment industry, content is king. The majority of this content is now produced in digital form while virtually all of this content is distributed digitally. Amid a growing demand for higher-quality content, such as HD and 4k, digital data is rapidly growing in size and adding to soaring production costs.
LTO Digital tape – considered a highly cost-effective and reliable option – has increasingly become the archive answer for producers, and since the introduction of Linear Tape File System (LTFS), archiving content to tape in the workflow can be as easy as using drag-and-drop with a USB data stick.

Looks like Steven Soderbergh is making fun use of his retirement. The erstwhile director has taken Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho and cut it together with the shot-by-shot remake that Gus Van Sant directed in 1998.

Whether it be a camera, lighting equipment or a production monitor, there is always a struggle to balance important features with a good price.
When we needed a small HD production monitor, we looked at our requirements and researched what was on the market. We wanted it to be small and light enough to fit on our HD camera, but we needed it to be rugged and offer professional features like waveform, vectorscope and SDI/HDMI input.
