        We’re all living inside a giant media asset management system. It’s called the universe, and some remote parts of it run intelligent software called “Humans”. We somehow manage to keep track of a seemingly infinite mountain of assets.

                  8K, the cloud, and the post production dilemma,-the-cloud,-and-the-post-production-dilemma,-the-cloud,-and-the-post-production-dilemma 8K HDR images will need a lot of that cloud to be processed

                  For a post production industry that suddenly has to manipulate and process images 70x what they were a scant couple of decades ago, the problems that the forthcoming massive leap in resolution about to engulf us brings are probably greater than most. Luckily, cloud technology will be there to provide the horsepower to cope.
