Media Matters LLC. is a technical consultancy specializing in archival audio and video material. Media Matters provides advice, analysis, and products to media archives that apply the beneficial advances in technology to collection management. Our flagship product is SAMMA, the System for the Automated Migration of Media Assets, which required the invention of new subsystems, including a mechanism to bring together the two critical objectives of any audiovisual archive, preservation and access, into a single standard digital file format. Our research into such a format for the Dance Heritage Coalition led us to recommend Motion JPEG2000. Media Matters presents an early working prototype of our cutting-edge Lossless Compressed Real-Time Audio-Video Encoding system, combining lossless compressed video using MJPEG2000 with lossless Broadcast Wave file (BWF) -- an industry first.
