The Finish Line will benefit from MatrixStore Cloud for the next five years

The Finish Line - Postproduction Studio

Object Matrix has announced a 5-year deal with post-production house, The Finish Line, to migrate its archive to MatrixStore Cloud from public cloud.

The Finish Line designs and manages in-house post-production solutions for productions, providing on-site or remote access editorial, finishing and mastering services. It had a requirement to protect archive content in a “cost effective manner” whilst being able to retrieve clips on demand. To achieve this objective, the company chose to migrate from AWS Glacier to the MatrixStore Cloud service.

Content will be archived to the MatrixStore Cloud service using a range of backup tools and the S3 interface. Once migrated, the entire archive will be accessed from one place using Vision from Object Matrix, enabling global teams to discover and share content across the entire archive.

Peter Watling, Object Matrix, said: “MatrixStore Cloud offers media organisations far more value than public cloud archive platforms. For customers like the Finish Line, it not only makes commercial sense but it also gives them access to all their content at any time using dedicated media interfaces provided at no extra cost.”

Zeb Chadfield, Founder, The Finish Line, added: “Having seen the session from Object Matrix during the DPP Innovation Week, we were confident its software would help us manage our archive effectively while keeping costs low and predictable. What makes that even better is that the team is a pleasure to work with, extremely responsive, and with good lines of communication throughout the implementation and beyond. That has been instrumental in ensuring a smooth transition.”
