Best Way to Store, Catalog and Find Media

We shoot footage for internal use and some B-Roll for our businesses to use. We are shooting footage on the RED and have a small production team. The challenge we're facing is the fact we've never designed the right workflow, and have been working out of a folder structure using Premiere and After Effects.

  • No consistent metadata tagging
  • Can't find assets
  • If we want to find footage, we have to ask somebody who knows where it is (and some don't work here anymore)
  • Working with 8K RAW RED footage is taxing on the hardware
  • No easy way to collaborate and get feedback on shots and cuts
  • Moving files and archiving are all manual

  • 2 RED cameras (Weapon & Helium)
  • 120 TB of footage
  • Lots of duplicates
  • Adobe CC
  • 45 Drives Turbo 60 XL running FreeNAS with 225 TB usable
  • 10 GbE infrastructure from servers to clients

We've been told we need a MAM system to manage the tagging, ingestion and moving the data. What do you guys suggest? It seems like MAM systems are the "old school" way of dealing with footage and seem out-of-date.

How do the best solve the same issues we're facing? There has to be a better way to manage Storage, Catalogs and Search.

What tools do you use?
