KS4/5 Media Studies - Storage
We are running GCSE & A Level Media Studies courses. I am being told by the meeja studies teachers that they need to capture & store uncompressed video at about 200MB/min & that they need students to be able to store up to an hour's-worth, which is about 12GB/student. We have 40 doing meeja studies this year with double that number proposed for 2008/9. I make that getting on for 1TB without even considering backup. They say they need uncompressed video for editing in Premiere Elements. I have already set up a separate subnet with the server & 25 workstations with 1Gb/s to the desktop, but the storage requirements are going to be a killer.
What are others doing?
