Readers of my Tech Thursday articles on TVNewsCheck.com may recall a story I wrote a story last September about Crawford Media Services’ use of object-based digital storage for media.
The story, “Crawford Charts New Path To Digital Storage,” lays out how the Atlanta-based post production and media services company found itself at a crossroads in how it would proceed with storing digital media.
Under the leadership of the company’s now-retired EVP and CTO Steve Davis, Crawford took the leap into this new, more efficient approach to storing digital information.
Davis chose Quantum’s Lattus object storage-based system, the StorNext file system and Artico storage appliance to meet Crawford’s needs.
Today, word comes that U.K. television channel S4C also has deployed object-based storage for its nearline content requirements.
The channel, which serves a Welsh-speaking audience, has begun using the MatrixStore digital content governance platform and 60 Terabytes of object storage from Object Matrix.
S4C will have access to Object Matrix’ MXFS client application to ensure content is being ingested as a like-for-like copy and Vision, a browser-based content search and collaboration tool, Object Matrix said in announcing the deployment.
The deployment will support the channel’s existing workflow, which will enable editors to retrieve archived content seamlessly from storage for use in the editing suite.
More information is available on the Object Matrix website.
