With a plethora of Creative industry events around the world each year, as an international company it can sometimes be hard to choose which ones to attend, but this year we are excited to make a first visit to the Hollywood Post Alliance technical retreat. (NB: when we started Object Matrix we naively thought that the industry was turning to on-line sales and that corporate events were a thing of the old world… it is kind of nice to know that human interaction still counts for something!) The HPA Tech Retreat is an annual informal gathering held in the Palm Springs area. It is attended by the top industry-engineering, technical, and creative talent, as well as strategic business leaders. The event is focused on technology, from all aspects of digital-cinema, post-production, film, television, video, and related technologies. For Object Matrix, our positive experience of running the WIG events means we are hoping to find a different experience than your run of the mill industry event: one focused on technology, less “salesy” and more about what technology is out there and what direction it needs to be going in.

We ask our panel of experts about how they have worked with their customers to support a surge in demand for news, how the news broadcasters and social media platforms work together especially with the rise in fake news on digital platforms.
In this IABM TV interview, Jonathan Morgan (CEO, Object Matrix) discusses the most important storage considerations & what's new with MatrixStore.
The broadcast industry has found itself in a new landscape, where all content is desirable on all platforms, and at all times. This means that not only are broadcasters finding themselves with thousands of hours of content but thousands of hours of content that needs to be available at any given time. Storage for content needs to be functional so that it is capable of storing content that can be easily ingested, logged, distributed and archived. Matrixstore, from Object Matrix is a Digital Content Governance and object storage platform that protects and preserves content through its lifespan.
This short paper looks at the technical side of why object storage is often a better building block for storage platforms than file systems.
The storage industry is fundamentally changing, Jonathan Morgan (CEO of Object Matrix) and Brian Grainger (Chief Sales Officer of Spectra Logic) discuss the changes and challenges with John Ive (Director of Technology and Strategic Insight, IABM). By 2020 it is estimated that there will be 40 Zetabytes of data around the world which equates to approximately 5.5 petabytes per person per year so how will we see storage adapting over the coming years and how can this amount of data be effectively stored for easy access.
Whenever we visit new prospects we see the same problems time and time again. Whether they be banks, broadcasters, post-production facilities or telecoms companies, they face similar technical challenges when ingesting, curating, protecting and sharing video assets.
