Storage Systems for Video Game Developers
Production values of state-of-the-art video games continue to increase and become more realistic. Today’s games feature HD video and Dolby surround sound. The next generation game consoles continue to drive the need for more sophisticated, realistic games.
All these advances are making game development workflows more complex than ever since it requires bringing audio and video together with code that provides lighting, physics, and AI –– all to provide an entertaining, immersive experience for the user.
To stay competitive, game developers need to take advantage of the technologies used by audio and video production companies. By using a cross-platform mix of best-of-breed audio and video products, game developers definitely push the limits of storage performance.
