Archiving is all the Fashion at B Productions

B Productions has long been the go-to production and post boutique for A-list fashion and beauty designers in New York including Calvin Klein, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, and Oscar de la Renta. B Productions’ library contains over 6,500 original camera tapes, with between 1,500 to 2,000 hours of precious fashion footage to safeguard. “Our library was starting to become unmanageable and burdensome in terms of the space it was taking up. We could easily use the space for something more profitable, like another edit bay,” says Piniella.

They also did not want to risk the possibility of the BetaCam and DVC tape lasting for much longer, and decided a smaller shelf of LTO-tapes as the archive would be much more manageable. “The Pro-Cache6, with 6TB built-in RAID, and the 2.5TB capacity of LTO-6 tapes, was perfect for our needs. The team knew very little about archiving before,We were immediately struck by how very easy-to-use and straightforward the Cache-A systems are,” Piniella says.
