Media Room is the premier content management platform for
production, distribution and entertainment and gives you room
to move, room to create and room to manage.
Silver Trak Digital one of the most trusted technology support companies in the media industry conceived Media Room in 2012 to be an agnostic content management platform. Designed and developed for aggregating, hosting, searching and delivering media content anywhere in the world, Media Room targeted three key concepts for content: security, availability and usage.
With the shift in media production to digital technology the opportunity to find a software platform “off the shelf” that was sufficiently robust and yet flexible enough to meet the unique demands of multiple clients was practically impossible. For most businesses confronted by the growth of digital files the alternative for a hosting management platform was an expensive, technology dependent option.
Media Room was developed in-house by Silver Trak Digital to not only meet the demands of content aggregation, usage and delivery, but was positioned to take advantage of the economies of scale, securely hosting multiple clients’ data, providing a very affordable alternative to buying or building one-off systems.
Media Room, now entering its third development iteration has proved invaluable to many production and post production companies across Australia, including sporting enterprises, streaming channels, distribution houses and independent producers and companies.
The development of Media Room continues well into the future targeting and incorporating advanced technology innovations such as live stream capture, voice to text, facial recognition and AI augmentation.
Media Room by Silver Trak Digital provides one of the most advanced asset management solutions available as a SaaS platform. Conceived and built in 2012, Media Room was influenced by Silver Trak’s 30 years of media experience and designed incorporating client requirements and expectations.
Creating production content in the digital environment has been the single most innovative change since television. Recording and creating content has never been easier than with the advancement of high definition digital cameras.
With innovation comes challenge.
More content means more files to search for the required data; developing camera technology means difficult format parity for distribution; growing file sizes means sharing and delivery delays across limited bandwidths – and scariest of all – digital files and open internet content means security problems, corruption, hacking, loss and theft.
Media Room powers continuous development, investigating and reflecting the most up to date technology and software advances. Our development teams’ continued efforts to always improve technologies with enhancements like AI, facial recognition, live logging, live capture and other advances means that our platform grows with innovation and users are never affected by complacency.
