Mwnci Chooses MatrixStore for Avid based Archive.

Mwnci Post Production implements ‘The MatrixStore’ to secure digital assets in its Avid file based workflow.

Cardiff, UK – Object Matrix, a developer of secure asset archive and retrieval software, has
today supplied Cardiff based post-production facility Mwnci with its pre-production rushes archive and nearline archive solution, The MatrixStore. The multi-purpose data management
solution provides a secure archive for client owned content that enters the facility and also acts as a secure parking location for ongoing projects.

Rich Moss, Managing Director of Mwnci stated, “More and more of the projects coming into Mwnci are file based and as such we need to ensure we have the best infrastructure in place to cope with not only the incredible amount of content but also the wide variety of the content formats that come into the facility. The DropSpot software from Object Matrix understands the Panasonic P2 and Sony SxS formats allowing metadata entered on the camera to be harvested and attached to the content in our MatrixStore cluster. We made a decision to keep our production SAN at an optimal size for both performance and throughput whilst moving older content that still needs to be accessed to a more appropriate platform.

The MatrixStore fits perfectly as both the pre-production and the nearline archive in our Avid based workflow.”

Mwnci uses mostly Avid technology in the post production of television programming for clients such as the BBC and S4C.
