​Object Matrix’s Storage Implemented By S4C

Object Matrix has announced that its digital content governance platform has been implemented by UK channel S4C.

S4C, the first television channel to be aimed specifically at a Welsh-speaking audience, has implemented the digital content governance platform, MatrixStore with 60 Terabytes of secure object storage.

As part of the deployment, S4C will also gain access to Object Matrix’s MXFS client application, ensuring content is being ingested as a like-for-like copy, as well as Vision, a browser-based content search and collaboration tool.

“The deployment of Object Matrix’s solutions is primarily aimed at improving the efficiency of the team responsible for the creation of promotional trailers for transmission,” commented Steve Cowin, CTO, S4C. “MatrixStore will enable that team to easily archive content whilst also providing immediate access at a later date. As a result, content is reusable and the search process less labour-intensive, meaning our team can spend more time working creatively to the best of their abilities.”

MatrixStore will also integrate with S4C’s existing workflow, in order for editing teams to seamlessly deliver archived content from storage into the editing suite.
