Object Matrix, the leading provider of object storage solutions for the media industry, have partnered with Drastic Technologies, the developer of cutting edge solutions for television, post production and sports broadcasting.
The combination of Object Matrix with Drastic Technologies provides users the ability to organise and make best use of all of their post production and broadcast media, whilst at the same time, ensuring that access to their assets is secure, efficient and simple.
Drastic Technologies’ Net-X-Code provides a complete solution for: capture from network IP or SDI, restreaming, partial file restore, review and output, with signal and file analysis, media transcoding/proxy creation, as well as full support for closed captioning embed/extract, and robust metadata handling. Command line functionality provides a ‘set it and forget it’ approach to the ever increasing number of required formats used in file based content creation and delivery.
Integrated with Object Matrix’s MatrixStore object storage solution, users can access their content securely from anywhere, at any time. With built-in security, analytics, and intuitive interfaces, MatrixStore delivers operational efficiencies, full digital content governance, and multiple media-based workflows.
The partnership has created an accessible avenue for broadcast and media companies looking for fast access to transcode and proxy workflows, whilst benefiting from a secure way to store their media archive. It also provides a proven multi-petabyte joint deployment, providing greater benefit for live media workflows and easier access for promotional video clips.
Jonathan Morgan CEO of Object Matrix commented, “Drastic Technologies is a hugely flexible and powerful transcode technology that can access MatrixStore via its s3 or filesystem interfaces and that can be used to enable partial file restores (subclips), to generate proxies and to generate scrubbing files. All are powerful features that help you to ultilise your nearline and media libraries to full. But not only this, Drastic are also a friendly and passionate company to work with. It is a company that we have had the pleasure of solving media customer requirements together with for many years, and hopefully, for many years to come.”
“Object Matrix has the most secure and flexible storage options in the industry! Our conversion tools provide a cost effective insight into the multimedia, broadcast/post files, sequences and camera cards as well as optimised partial file restore for long recordings.” noted James Brooks, CTO of Drastic Technologies.
