  11. 11. Mutating Filesystems: Making IT work for Broadcast James Westland Cain, Ph.D. Principal Software Architect Quantel Limited
  12. 12. Filesystems •  The file is the most basic thing in computer science – and the lifeblood of our industry. •  Files on disk are inflexible. Whatever is on disk is what you get. •  Quantel can offer files to order – without writing them all to a disk. •  This works with any modern OS – Windows, OS-X, Linux – and therefore to any modern program.
  13. 13. Mutating Filesystems •  Treating a file request as a command allows us to be extremely flexible. •  However, we must not break the rules – the applications do not expect the files to change underneath them. •  A mutating filesystem must have some of the properties of the Web – it must be RESTful.
  14. 14. Putting Work into the File •  By honouring RESTful paths we can safely turn a file system access into a command. •  By adding sizers and codecs to our filesystem, we can dynamically create content to order. •  This makes us able to be the most flexible essence container in the industry.
  15. 15. Examples •  SAM – offering DPX & TIFF files of any size and colour space (LUT) to order – instantly. •  FCP – offering compressed QuickTime & XMEML files whilst still recording. •  Internet – Offering h.264 (MOOF) & ISMC files to MS-IIS / Smooth Streaming, to see content anywhere on the planet within seconds.
  16. 16. Conclusion •  Files are the Lingua Franca of IT. •  Control the files, change the rules. •  By changing the rules, IT R&D spend can be more readily used to make media production workflows. •  Instant access to live assets, with frame accurate editing, anywhere.
