I have been working in the AV industry for some time supplying Pro AV Hardware and I have seen a lot of changes over the years one of the which was the move from Tape Base Camcorders to Tapeless Systems.
The Big question that I used to hear a lot was "so...how do I store my footage after I've shot them if I don't have any tapes to put on my tape library shelf?" and the short term solution always has been "Put them on Hard Drives"!
I recently read that there is a 13% Failure rate across the board for Hard Drives that are used for storing media asset (or anything else for that matter)!
As Videographers, Editors, Film Makers and people who are involved in the world of video content creation, does this not worry you?
Have you lost media because of a faulty Hard Drive?
