April is my favorite time of the year.  The hockey playoffs start –Let’s Go Islanders! The baseball season starts – Let’s Go Mets!  And the industry’s biggest and most important trade show happens – NAB - I’m going to Vegas! This year I’m really excited about several categories of emerging technologies / markets:

  • Affordable shared storage solutions
  • Live production & switching tools
  • More powerful, flexible and affordable encoding / streaming devices
  • New features and updates to NLE software & plug-ins

This article is my wish list, so none of the comments below are based on anything more then what I’ve been hearing my customers ask for and what I’ve been asking from my vendors for over the past year.

Affordable shared storage solutions

As I’ve mentioned in previous blog posts, Avid ISIS is the gold standard by which all other shared video storage solutions are judged. It’s also pretty darn expensive. What I’m hearing from my customers – small production studios, event videographers, corporate video departments, worship and education – is that they would like to see shared storage solutions they can afford, in the $10K to $20K price range. They know they’ll have to make some compromises, but they want in on the shared storage party.  Most importantly they want something expandable and flexible that can grow with them, not something they can grow out of in a year or two.
