300GB by 2015?
I’m not an analyst, but they are probably going to have to hope that they can squeeze a bit more out than that? I guess this is recording media, not archival, in which case, they will be on par with some ssd tech (like SxS).
A current 2.5 min project I am working on has over 7TBs of footage. This is for one measly video.
It would take 48 discs (on site and off site copies) to archive this one projects source material.
I’m with you, Craig, about the players/recorders needed now and in to the future. Currently, LTO seems to still be the best bet, especially having something that is bondable and recognized by insurance companies.
But it is not cheap nor is it exactly ubiquitous.
