CORTINA PRODUCTIONS – CHESA ENRICHES INNOVATIVE MUSEUM EXHIBITIONS WORK WITH CUSTOMIZED STORAGE SOLUTION
Cortina Productions is a full-service creative media design and production company based in McLean, Va. that specializes in the museum field. The company’s work, which is focused on telling stories in compelling and innovative ways, ranges from dynamic film and video content to interactive displays and games, and immersive Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, and Virtual Reality environments for museums, cultural institutions, visitor centers, and aquariums across the world.
Success brings new challenges. Rapid growth and more complex projects make efficiencies and content accessibility a necessity. Cortina recognized they needed to evolve their infrastructure.
“For a number of years we had a server farm, but every type of work was segmented: designers had one server, programmers had another, editors had their own,” says Cortina’s Director of Software Development Bryan Heisey.
We kept tripping over ourselves trying to handle all this data.
