Video Workflow Solutions

FROM CAMERA TO CUTTING ROOM

Whether you’re creating your own video channel or a multimillion-dollar film, a strong media workflow can make or break your project. Time is money, footage is critical, and multiple backups aren’t optional. That’s why SanDisk Professional designs professional storage solutions from portable SSDs to high-capacity RAID solutions, to manage your video assets efficiently and reliably at every step of production.

Offload and Backups

On Location

There’s nothing more frustrating than waiting for your footage to finish offloading and backing up at the end of a shoot. Save time copying with our portable, professional-grade G-DRIVE PRO SSD, delivering transfer speeds up to 2800MB/s2 and available with up to 2TB of capacity1. If you need a fast backup copy for distribution, check out the ultra-rugged G-DRIVE SSD. And if you have access to power, our transportable G-RAID Shuttle 4 is a must-have RAID system for speed and redundancy.

How could I justify to a client that they just lost a $600,000 shoot because someone dropped a wallet? Or we find out there was a bad card?

Redundancy is King

In Motion

Before leaving a shoot, experienced video pros create 3 or 4 backups and travel with them separately to protect against accidents like misplaced luggage. Pros also use different backup drives depending on the destination. For reliable copies, SanDisk Professional offers the G-DRIVE ArmorATD rugged hard drive with up to 5TBs of portable storage1. If your assistant editor is in hurry to start laying out timelines and clips, then check out the blazing-fast G-DRIVE PRO SSD.

Post-production is where a project comes together.
