A Primer on Video Encoding

Whenever you watch a video – whether it is streamed over a network or downloaded onto a device – the chances are that the original files have been compressed and the file size shrunk to make it more manageable for the bandwidth and storage available to you at the time. This compression is known as video encoding and it is a hugely important process to ensure that video data can be stored and transmitted efficiently, even over constrained networks where bandwidth is limited.

Ruggedized Computer Data Storage 101

Ruggedized storage solutions are critical for defense and industrial applications, giving users the capability to securely store different types of data that is collected during missions and operations. For demanding applications, it is vital that storage solutions are encrypted and expertly ruggedized to ensure that data is not lost or compromised as a result of the adverse and challenging conditions.
