Cardiff, 13th April 2017

Films at 59, Bristol-based post-production company, has implemented Digital Content Governance platform from Object Matrix, MatrixStore, to consolidate multiple media workflows onto one scalable platform. The installation was carried out by post production integrator, Digital Garage, which has considerable experience delivering progressive, creative, and innovative solutions to content creators, broadcasters and media producers.

As well has having 528 Terabytes of MatrixStore object storage, Films at 59 has implemented MatrixStore Vision, a browser-based content search and collaboration tool, to enable easy search, upload and download of data, and additional asset management functionality. This is all handled within a simple and easy-to-navigate browser window.

Using DropSpot from Object Matrix, Films at 59 is also able to tag objects with metadata on ingest. Content is automatically verified upon a simple drag and drop, without the need for expensive and time-consuming third-party applications.

“It’s important that we continue to make our clients’ experience as creative and simple as possible. With people needing to review work-in-progress, it was key to have a system that could easily allow access, whilst ensuring stringent security and protection for other content,” commented Jamie Lawrence, Workflow Consultant, Films at 59. “MatrixStore also brings further benefits, such as the ability to automate a lot more tasks and handle multiple tasks simultaneously.”

“Films at 59 has provided a range of award-winning services to producers across the globe,” added Nick Pearce-Tomenius, Sales and Marketing Director, Object Matrix. “With clients worldwide, being able to give them easy access, in a secure and protected environment, was particularly important and we are pleased our platform can enable that.”

Two engineers from Films at 59 recently received Object Matrix certification, following comprehensive training in Cardiff.

Object Matrix will be demonstrating its MatrixStore at the NAB Show (Booth: SL5405), from the 22nd – 27th April.
