Jay Cooper, who has been Kenny Chesney's touring video director for more than a decade, was looking to improve his workflow speed. In 2016 he turned to G-Technology to help him store footage from the 36 concerts of Chesney's Spread the Love tour. The first two devices that sped up his workflow were a 64 TB G-SPEED Shuttle XL, a transportable eight-bay RAID tower with a Thunderbolt 2 interface, and a G-SPEED Studio XL. Using these tools dramatically decreased his uploading time by 50 percent; each show now takes him an hour to an hour and a half to transfer.

While his storage strategy prior to G-Technology was to buy smaller drives as needed and piecemeal content together, the addition of a G-DOCK ev allowed Cooper to also easily transfer and store the hundreds of photos taken each night. As all creative professionals working in the field know, anything can happen at any moment. This is why Cooper keeps two G-DRIVE ev ATC portable drives in his backpack at all times. These portable options provide backup for master copies, all while keeping Cooper's content safely stored while on the go.
