Commercial wedding photographer and videographer Justin Wojtczak deals with a great deal of irreplaceable data. Since photos and videos of weddings cannot be reshot, protecting footage is of utmost importance to Wojtczak and his company 375 Photography. For the important job of protecting data, he turns to the Seagate IronWolf NAS drive.
Psycho Films Ups their Capacity with Seagate and LaCie
Their hustle is hip-hop videos---not digital storage. So when Psycho Films needed a solution for their drive sprawl, they turned to Seagate and LaCie.
On set or in the field, your memory cards acquire large amounts of visual and audio content. You can keep your data reliably secure all the way to the editing bay by first transferring it from memory cards to either a portable drive or RAID solution integrated with your DIT cart.

For video post-production, you need data solutions that are fast enough to let you work with your footage at the highest resolution possible while providing you enough capacity to consolidate all of your project content. For photography, you need reliable data solutions that have enough processing power to let you browse your entire Lightroom® library without lag. For audio, you need performance-centric data solutions that allow you to mix up to 100 tracks simultaneously.

See what Justin Wojtczak has to say with IronWolf hard drives in his Drobo NAS
The last step in any creative project is moving it to long-term storage. Small studios might store their project on a clearly labelled DAS then archive it onto a shelf. But as storage needs grow, it becomes more cost-effective and easier to both manage and protect if completed projects are stored on a RAID, NAS, or SAN with purpose-built archive hard drives.
