How collaborative editing makes creatives more creative
Shared storage makes collaborative editing possible
When it comes to the evolution of collaborative editing, Simon Haywood, Dell EMC CTO, Media & Entertainment in EMEA, takes the long view.
The two factors that make collaborative editing possible are shared storage, which gives multiple users simultaneous access to the same media, and fast networks, which allow geographically dispersed teams to share ideas and make decisions together. These creative teams remind Tom Burns, Dell EMC’s CTO, Media & Entertainment in the Americas, of the trend in computer science toward agile programming methodology, which is defined by what’s known as the “scrum” framework. Spurts of intense creative activity, or “sprints,” are scheduled over fixed durations, leading to checkpoints where work is paused and completed pieces of the project are reviewed.
