Object Matrix, the leading provider of object storage solutions for the media industry, have partnered with Hiscale, a software development company who specialise in scalable and future-ready media processing solutions.

The integrated solution brings together Hiscale’s flexible transcoding solution FLICS and Object Matrix’s revolutionary media-focused cloud storage platform MatrixStore.

Hiscale’s FLICS solution features an advanced set of video processing capabilities for broadcast customers, media, and entertainment houses as well as telecommunication providers. Allowing maximum flexibility for deployment, FLICS can manage instances across various platforms dynamically to maximise performance as well as reliability.

The combined technology provides users with a scalable transcoding solution that can manage instances across various platforms and is integrated with MatrixStore which is built on mature, feature-rich, and future-proof object-based storage technology delivering operational efficiencies, full digital content governance, and multiple media-based workflows.

As a result of the partnership, broadcast, media and entertainment companies now have an easy way to quickly access transcoding and proxy workflows whilst benefiting from a secure media archiving solution.

Nick Pearce, Co-founder at Object Matrix, says: “With proxy and mezzanine format workflows becoming a necessity in remote production workflows our customers need flexible and scalable transcode capabilities that have been tried and tested on our MatrixStore on-prem and cloud platforms. Integrating MatrixStore object storage with FLICS, from Hiscale, ensures the transformation process is both automated and very efficient meaning our customer can focus their time on other tasks.”

Christoph Jurkuhn, Head of Product & Presales at Hiscale, says: “The FLICS transcoding platform has a modern architecture that leverages Docker container technology for flexible, cost-effective and automated deployment. It can run where content is received to deliver directly to the MatrixStore object store, which provides media customers with a fast and secure place to store what is most valuable: their content. The integration of two cloud-native, hybrid and scalable products is a big win for broadcast and media customers and will help determine how these organizations migrate their operations moving forward.”
