“Digital content creation is key in the media and entertainment (M&E) industry, comprising of unique moments that are the product of time and money – and often irreplaceable. We have seen an exponential rise in the amount of data created and as such, it has become central to industries such as M&E. From shooting on set through to post-production, the transferring, storing and accessing of data is a pivotal part of the creative workflow. At Seagate, we’re constantly looking to deliver storage solutions that allow people to unlock their full creative potential, and create truly memorable content.”
Seagate explains more about the creative professional online community the company has created. “As part of this, the site hosts residents, a select group of industry standard-bearers who will both inspire and nurture creative talent by providing content for the site during their ‘residency’. Their activity and ongoing relationship with the platform is designed to entice aspiring creatives to join the platform to reap the rewards of membership. The creative industries are built on collaboration and LaCie is committed to not only providing the right solutions, but the right environment too for all creative professionals.”
