    Media Studies

    How do you do it?

    We have been running media studies this year and some of the file sizes being created are for me stupidly big. To be fair to the teacher in charge he has not been given any proper training and has just had a few camcorders and other kit thrown at him.

    How are your staff/kids saving video files, what format, compression etc?

    I am scared of the thought of Media Studies, its a possibilty for into in a year or two and I thought as much as this in terms of data storage space.... But storage is cheap now, so get lots of it

    We deliberately limited movie sizes for projects to small sizes thinking about the space we had available. One off projects got archived off onto dvd straight away and removed from vanilla storage ...is how we handle it.

    We're redoing the media studies kit at the moment. I've just ordered a 1TB terastation pro (roughly £500) and a Gb switch dedicated to media studies so they don't dump massive files to the main fileservers / network.

    Now I just need to configure the switch so they can't do it by mistake. The stuff they work on can be massive 2Gb files, the finished product (that might get stored long-term) is usually pretty small (.mov).
