YOUR BEER ROUNDtable: Discussing The Ultimate Hybrid Stack

Object Matrix Scoops Best Storage Award at NAB

Cardiff, Wales, New York, USA, 2nd April 2020:

Object Matrix and CineSys-Oceana announce that they will be hosting a series of informal online beer roundtable events in the coming months. The aim of the series is to discuss the various challenges organisations face when implementing the ideal hybrid technology stack to provide business continuity, remote working and the ability for creative professionals to self-serve access to archive content.


During the first session Brent Angle, CTO at Cinesys-Oceana and Jonathan Morgan, CEO Object Matrix, will introduce what they believe to be the mandatory elements of “The Ultimate hybrid technology stack”.

CineSys-Oceana has built up a reputation for technical excellence, unrivalled support and a laser focus on supporting the M&E community. We are launching these events, with partners like Object Matrix, as our customer community is asking for our opinions on how to cope with the current situation and also for deeper levels of integration and engagement.

Steve Strong, Partner, CineSys-Oceana

This will be followed by a round table discussion hosted by Harry Skopas, Director M&E Solutions Architecture and Technical Sales at CineSys-Oceana, with guest appearances from the media and sports technology communities.

The content of the following sessions will be decided organically by those who participate in the first session to ensure the community discusses the important matters on their mind.

The first rule of “BEER ROUNDtable” events is to talk as much about the “BEER ROUNDtable” events as possible. The second rule is to share the news and invites as you see them. Last but not least, the third rule is to send in questions and tell the team about the beer you will be enjoying during the session.

The aim is that the sessions are open, fun and relaxed. The BEER ROUNDtable team ask that you grab a beer, wine, G&T or coke zero and participate as much as you wish. If you want to ask a question then simply raise your glass and a moderator will bring you into the conversation.

The aim for me is that this becomes a virtual version of the highly successful W.I.G events we have put on over the last 10 years in Europe. A relaxed, open environment where we, the vendors, listen, engage, advice and build future technology roadmaps. When the time is right we will bring the W.I.G events to the USA to do this in person

 Nick Pearce, co-founder Object Matrix and W.I.G (Workflow Innovation Group)

Vendors from across the M&E community are all welcome but if their participation is too salesy they will be forced to buy everyone a round the next time we meet!
