Other technologies on display in the Fujifilm booth include Fujifilm-developed media for the new Sun/StorageTek T10000 drive system, the highest capacity data tape storage drive commercially available.
Additionally, Fujifilm is sponsoring an NAB InfoSession, "Rescuing Yesterday: Analog Video to HD Conversion. How production companies and networks can preserve historic analog video content and revitalize it for the HD world" at 9:30a.m. on Tuesday, April 25th in North Hall, N232.
The panel will be moderated by Daisy Whitney, contributing writer for TelevisionWeek, and will focus on a broadcast industry that is wrestling with the need to identify, convert and archive or monetize millions of early broadcast tapes that today sit idle in video libraries and vaults.
