Object Matrix Delivers Secure Nearline for ITN MAM
Cardiff, 28th March 2017
ITN, award-winning news and media production company has implemented a nearline storage cache from Object Matrix.
MatrixStore uses object-based storage technology to provide an integrated and automated nearline platform to support multiple workflows. It provides a secure cache that can be easily integrated with ITN’s Media Asset Management system, delivering fast access to recently archived items.
Thanks to MatrixStore’s Digital Content Governance, ITN is able to easily access, share, and distribute content stored within the cache at any time, whilst also ensuring that content is continually protected. Having been integrated into ITN’s existing technology infrastructure, the transition was seamless, meaning the ITN team could continue to work using familiar workflows and processes.
“It is becoming increasingly critical that we can continue to have easy and fast access to the most recently archived items, whilst also protecting, curating, sharing, distributing, and auditing that content,” commented Ian Auger, Head of Engineering, ITN. “MatrixStore gives us that access and control, at the same time as giving us the flexibility to integrate with other parts of the workflow.”
“Working with a globally recognised and respected organisation such as ITN is a huge honour for Object Matrix. Our integrated and automated technology platforms ensure we can meet its current, and future, strategic requirements to ensure access to their growing archive.” stated Nick Pearce, co-founder Object Matrix.
