Archive and Backup of media files

Protecting against loss of digital media files is a number one priority. They are the life blood of any company relying on them for revenue generation. Whether they are new files or digital rushes that have just come into the facility, work-in-progress by the editor or media files that require archiving safely – unless multiple copies of content exist, then even a simple failure or mishap can corrupt, or lose altogether, digital media.
