The technology partnership provides a comprehensive, end to end solution that enables customers to move content seamlessly through storage tiers without having to manage the process. The movement of the data, or objects, from MatrixStore to tape will be managed by a new software module from Object Matrix which is due to be released at IBC in September. MatrixStore acts as a pre-¬production or nearline archive protecting content during the production process and keeping content available on-demand. The technical partnership with XenData allows that content to be protected in open formats on any number of tape libraries in any number of locations ensuring that the customer fully satisfies their internal or external data protection policies. Object Matrix (booth: SL11608) and XenData (booth: SL12513) will be exhibiting their digital preservation platforms at NAB. www.object-matrix.com Introducing IPv6-ready audio codec P reco has announced a major addition to the Tieline range of broadcast audio codecs.

It provides a simple way for media services from multiple vendors to be integrated into a single, comprehensive asset management and delivery platform. With today’s keen commercial awareness, content owners and broadcasters need their asset management systems to be much more than simple libraries, said Tony Taylor, chairman and CEO of TMD. They need to integrate media services from ingest through transcoding to cloud storage and content delivery networks, and they need to synchronise rich metadata with multiple databases. This is something we have been building for years, but with the introduction of UMS we have simplified the process based on open standards. www.tmd.tv.
