​Française d’Images Updates Archive with Object Matrix

French content provider, Française d’Images, has extended its use of MatrixStore, a private cloud, to migrate and protect its entire archive.

Française d’Images is tasked with managing broadcast activities for the leading operator of France’s national lottery games, from production to delivery. With a growing catalogue of assets and internal requests, it was becoming increasingly challenging for the group to find the right content and therefore distribute it to the right audience. The volume of content also meant the archive system needed replacing with one that would be scalable, able to grow without compromising security and offer instant access.

Having implemented Object Matrix MatrixStore for production nearline parking in the past, Française d’Images chose to extend its use to manage their entire digital archive.
Videlio performed the integration of MatrixStore on the production site at Boulogne-Billancourt, France. The platform, initially used to park production content is said to have been extended to strengthen security of content at enterprise level and is now at the heart of the companies’ business continuity strategy. 

Nabil Bouchiba, CTO, Française d’Images, explains: “We were looking for a reliable and scalable solution to digitise our tape archive and streamline the operational costs. Our first experience with MatrixStore was undeniably successful; it is one of the few solutions ensuring such a high level of security and flexibility, combined with a media-oriented API. Having this level of confidence in a solution and being able to rely on it are invaluable, especially when we lead strategic projects like this one.”
