Digital preservation and analytics company Object Matrix have been selected to lead an innovative big data project in partnership with EADS Foundation Wales.
The project, which includes the Welsh Government and University of Wales Aberystwyth, is focused on meeting the increasing storage and analysis demands of the video surveillance industry. With a 10 year pedigree in delivering robust digital preservation platforms for the broadcast industry, there was a natural alignment between the project aims and the core competencies built up by Object Matrix over this period.
Government agencies across the UK not only support the collaborative process but also provide significant assistance to nurture collaboration between industry and academia. The aim of this type of collaborative R&D is to develop market disrupting, innovative technology. The partnership announced today by Object Matrix typifies this approach bringing together specialist expertise in digital preservation, taxonomy, academic research in the field of data simplification and military systems integration and development.
Jonathan Morgan, CEO, Object Matrix, stated:
“Object Matrix has over 100 years of collective experience in developing solutions to preserve digital content. We provide solutions and expertise that allow for the exploitation of both the content essence and the associated metadata thus bringing value to otherwise static information. Being able to bring our expertise to this project in partnership with Airbus Group makes perfect sense both from a commercial and R&D perspective.”
