Terence and Philip start discussing the tape shortage crisis – particularly HDCAM SR – caused by the situation in Japan: is tape dead, or will it merely lead to a resurgence of D5? Who’s accepting file-based delivery, is that even practical, and who gets to drive the need for tape delivery?
Remember, “No-one ever voluntarily changes their workflow”!
Considerations of tape shortage leads to discussion on archiving non-tape sources, and the issues surrounding that. What do we do in a world with tape shortage and ever increasing costs of hard drives?
Many thanks to Isai Espinoza for editing the show again and making us sound smart.
