Here are 5 reasons why Production IT is not Corporate IT….
1) First of all, production IT is not corporate IT. That may seem obvious to some, but we can’t tell you how many times we’ve spoken to companies in the Media and Entertainment industry who’ve had problems using standard IT services to solve production needs. Production IT solves the specific challenges of post production, visual effects, video game production and other forms of Media and Entertainment production.
3) Production IT works with software designed to support digital content creation, such as the gamut of Autodesk, Avid and Apple solutions, render farm management software, rendering services, and more. A deep understanding of DDC tools and how they are used, and how they interact with hardware, is critical to production IT professionals.
4) Production IT understands that quality is paramount – not just the quality of the hardware and software used, but the quality of the content created with it and the quality of the services you provide to your clients. That quality is affected by your ability to produce it efficiently. Downtime as a result of faulty IT services can cost you more than time!
5) Production IT understands BIG DATA and that production pipelines need to be able to create, store and move petabytes of content as quickly and efficiently as possible. That ability enables you to take on more work, to create more content, and to provide a level of service to your clients that they won’t forget.
