CULVER CITY, CA — Coughlin Associates (www.tomcoughlin.com) is starting its 2016 survey of media and entertainment professionals to find out how they are using digital storage in all aspects of their workflow. This will be the seventh survey conducted since 2009. Media and entertainment professionals are invited to take the survey via this link: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/ZP7LYBY.
The survey is intended to determine the industry's digital storage needs and expectations for the capture and creation of raw content, editing and post production, distribution of content, and digital archiving, as well as digital conversion and preservation. The results of the survey will be used to create the Coughlin Associates report on Digital Storage for Professional Media and Entertainment.
Tom Coughlin will also present high level survey results, as well as some material from the upcoming 2016 Report on Digital Storage in Media and Entertainment at the 2016 Creative Storage Conference, set to take place on June 23rd in Culver City, CA (www.creativestorage.org). The survey will stay open until May 15, 2016.
