Boomerang chooses The MatrixStore for Rushes and Library Archive

Content creator chooses ‘The MatrixStore’ to keep its content alive.

Cardiff, UK – Object Matrix, a developer of secure asset archive and retrieval software, has today supplied Cardiff based content creator and post-production facility Boomerang Plus Plc with its rushes, nearline and library archive solution, The MatrixStore. The multi-purpose data management solution provides a secure archive for client owned content that enters the facility and also keeps content available to be re-purposed, re-used or monetised.

Paul Owen, Head of Post Production at Boomerang stated, “In line with the rest of the industry we are facing up to the challenges of tapeless and HD production. We manage a mixture of studio and post content which must be protected and available on demand. The solution from Object Matrix provides the peace of mind that the content that comes into the facility, or that we produce locally, is authentic and protected at the highest levels. ”

Boomerang is largely an Avid facility that produces its own content for clients such as the BBC, S4C and Channel 4.

Paul added:

“Boomerang owns a lot of content that it has created over the years which is mainly tape based and less accessible when we need to re-purpose content. We will use the Vault functionality of MatrixStore to keep legacy content available online to all authorised personnel which means we will save time and money when a request comes in for content.”

The View From OM:

We are gaining a lot of traction in AVID and Final Cut workflows, both of which face the same challenges of implementing a repeatable, audited process for content ingest and exploiting legacy content by sweating the value of assets.
