Cardiff and London, UK, 14th April 2016: Object Matrix, the leading developer of object storage and business continuity systems to the media industry today announced the launch of Vision at NAB 2016.
Being able to quickly search, view and share your media assets no longer requires complex to install, learn or control software but can now be carried out via a stunning new Vision interface from Object Matrix. Seamlessly integrated with MatrixStore it uses the power of Process-in-Place to examine and enhance metadata of archived content and then allows any authorised user to quickly search, preview and share assets using only their web browsers.
Vision is a powerful search tool that looks at any metadata users have added during the ingest of the assets as well as metadata extracted from the assets themselves. In particular, Vision is aware of AS11 metadata and provides powerful search options that is domain aware.
“In this internet age, where data is searchable and instantly available, people quite rightly expect integrated solutions that allow data to be accessed and shared from their web-browser. Being highly aligned to the media industries means that we’ve pulled together the metadata from the assets stored including AS11 metadata, key media metadata, user metadata, 3rd party application metadata and generated proxies to provide an incredibly powerful interface to search and preview your assets. All of this comes without the need for complex to install and use 3rd party applications – it simply builds on the power of object storage,” stated Jonathan Morgan, CEO Object Matrix.
Working with 3rd party partners, it is also possible to enable proxy browsing and sharing workflows using the Vision interface.

- Easily find content in a MatrixStore archive with powerful search options
