SVN for binary asset management

Hi,

I could use some advice on Subversion's suitability for asset management
in the film industry.

Commercial products such as Alienbrain (http://alienbrain.com/whde.php)
are available for use as a repository/change control solution. I wonder
if Subversion could be used as the basis for a F/OSS alternative.

Generally, the data is gigabytes of (primarily) image and movie files
stored on a SAN. The users are artists (animators, compositors,
lighters, etc.) editors, visual effects supervisors, producers,
administrators and the like all who interact with the data in slightly
different ways. On the back end is a render farm that would also
interface with the repository.

Does this sound like something that Subversion could be good for?

-Simon.
