A Big Bang, not a bubble

Higher resolution content drives growth in photos, music and video  


The content explosion continues unabated. Robert Scoble highlights yet another reason it will continue for the foreseeable future.  He wants to save all his photos in RAW format…on the web. 

Higher resolution content is driving the information Big Bang:

  • High Definition video replacing Standard Definition (4X capacity)
  • Even higher definition video will follow (see what VideoGiants is doing)
  • High fidelity music (Apple and MusicGiants)
  • Raw photos increasingly replacing jpegs

1 TB drives are shipping in the hundreds of thousands to keep all of this content in the back rooms of content companies and the living rooms of consumers. 

What format is good enough for you today? Tomorrow?  I’d love to hear from you.
