Redundancy Equals Peace of Mind

Redundancy Equals Peace of Mind

When it comes to backing up your clips in the field, you want a redundant solution. You need a double-strength plan to deal with unexpected events. The goal is to have identical copies of your video data.

  •  Make sure you are using more than one backup drive.
  • Bring a laptop into the field with Adobe Premiere Pro loaded. You can verify the integrity of your data and playback clips on a larger monitor by checking focus and image quality.
  • Copy your footage to multiple places simultaneously. It’s a good idea to carry two external portable drives in the field. After mounting a memory card, simply copy the contents to two or more drives.
