After seeing Storjlabs has targeted universities as potential customers, here is a suggestion for an industry that would be a hell of a customer. Will Storjlabs act on it? My doubts remain. But here is the suggestion:
Ever wondered how cinemas receive the movies for their projectors? Unbelievable but true: Commonly they receive a movie as digital file on an external hard drive. Shipped physically via courier services. According to sources, in Germany alone thousands over thousands of these hard drives are shipped from and to cinemas every week.
Digitalization in the movie industry and theaters has led to an increase of transportation needs as more movies get recorded and cinemas change their programs more frequently. These transports cost money and are not environment friendly.
Now you know what I am going to suggest: Wouldn’t it be the perfect use case if production companies would upload their movies to Tardigrade cloud services once and movie theatres all over the world could download them as needed?
It seems that this kind of transformation to cloud based delivery is already under way: Gofilex seems to be one company that offers digital delivery of movies.
It would be an amazing opportunity for Tardigrade to target this industry. It could serve as secure, fast, efficient, cheap, resilient and environment friendly storage and distribution cloud for the movie industry.
