MatrixStore Plugs and Plays with CatDV Asset Management
MatrixStore integrates right into leading DAM’s to fully automate archiving / recovery from archive, or to make the process a simple click of a button.
Compared to manual processes of moving data to and from tapes/external disks, or processes that areinherentlyprone to human error, it demonstrates one more reason why having a fully integrated digital workflow is important to your organisation. The MatrixStore solution reduces complexity and let’s you focus on productive tasks.
In addition to reducing workflow complexity, MatrixStore extracts metadata from the DAM and to it so that data can be found back again with or without the original DAM solution, and without vendor lock-in.
If you are serious about long term data reuse in the Creatives industry, then we are very interested to see if we can work with you.Visit Square box at NAB Show 2009: Stand SL8307, or feel free to contact us via the contacts page.
Press Release: MatrixStore Plugs and Plays with CatDV Asset Management
London, UK – Object Matrix, a provider of data storage software, has today partnered with digital asset management solution vendor Square Box Media Solutions to create a flexible and powerful digitalcontent workflow solution allowing content creators to access their archived content at the click of a mouse.
The integration between the MatrixStore and CATDV products will allow customers who have invested in both Apple and Avid postproduction software to easily and powerfully manage their assets on a single archive storage solution.
Nick Pearce, co-founder of Object Matrix, commented: “Not all organisations have built their post production workflows on one platform. A number of the organisations we deal with have a mix of Apple, Avid and Adobe in their infrastructure, the integration between CatDV and MatrixStore will remove the complexity of managing assets from those disparate platforms”.
Using The MatrixStore, digital assets are stored onstate 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.
Ken Bell, Sales Director of Square Box Media Solutions, stated: “TheMatrixStore and CatDV integration brings to the fore the ability to track and protect your media throughout the lifetime of the content, the ultimate Media Asset Manager. Until now assets have lived on production disk or on some form of offline media, the MatrixStore will allow our customers to keep content online for longer periods making re-use and re-purposing of assets a real possibility”
