As most professional photographers and videographers know, digital cameras and video have large files and require a lot of storage space. A 12 megapixel JPEG + RAW image file from a DSLR can be 20MB, digital video may be 10-14GB per hour of footage. Computer hard drives can fill up quickly and if your computer has only one hard drive, storage of large media files can slow down the computer's performance. It is also necessary that digital media files are backed up; storage devices like mechanical hard drives and even Solid State Devices(SSD) have a limited life. When storage devices fail, all the files and data can be lost. If you value your digital photos and video, you must have a back up plan for your media. The storage technicians at WatermanAtWork can configure a cost efficient and easy to use storage system for digital media files. If you have photos scanned or video work done, it would be a good time to have that work stored on an external storage device. Contact us for details and pricing.
