Object Matrix, a provider of data storage software, has today installed its MatrixStore product into the Panasonic P2 Live customer experience centre. Located in the heart of the famous Shepperton Studios, the centre is aimed at providing clients with a fully integrated, live, tapeless workflow.
Panasonic’s P2 HD range of recording equipment is designed to provide a fully digital workflow for companies creating video. The P2 Live customer experience centre is a demonstration area where potential customers can see how the various different products work together to produce a fully digital workflow, from the initial high definition filming through editing and post production and then into archiving. Object Matrix’s MatrixStore is one of the archiving tools available and is now on show at the P2 Live centre.
Press Release from Objective Matrix -7 September 2009
Content and metadata that is ingested from Panasonic’s range of P2 based broadcast cameras can seamlessly be moved into the MatrixStore cluster using either Final Cut Server, CatDV or DropSpot applications. This range of interfaces provides the ability to protect content generated on mixed production platforms be they Avid, Apple or Adobe.
Nick Pearce, co-founder of Object Matrix, commented: “The centre puts into the spotlight the demonstrable benefits that automated, integrated, file based workflows can bring, namely increased efficiency, reduction in operating costs and highly secure data management.”
The centre highlights how the content and associated metadata can be protected at the highest levels from ingest to archive. Using The MatrixStore, digital assets are stored on state of the art server hardware with powerful software to provide an easy to use, scalable, secure and cost effective method of archiving multimedia projects. Archives are always available at the touch of a button, and the ease of installation and use mean that businesses are free to concentrate on their core competencies.
Adrian Clarke, General Manager UK & Ireland Professional & Broadcast IT Systems, stated: "Including Matrixstore into the Panasonic workflow experience centre exemplifies the convergence of Broadcast and IT technologies. It's a combination of standard IT building blocks with their deep understanding of the needs of the Broadcast user add another strong partner to the centre, giving our visitors the most powerful end to end demonstration of scalable tapeless workflow solutions anywhere in the market."
Object Matrix will be exhibiting the MatrixStore solution at IBC (Stand 6.C28d).
