Marquis Launches New Version of its Parking media archive and interchange system (27/1/2011)

Improved Avid and Apple Final Cut Pro Media Archive and Interchange Increases Flexibility and Reduces Overheads in Digital Post and Broadcasting Workflows

Marquis Broadcast , specialist in content workflows and media integration software, will be launching a new version of Parking, the company's media archive and interchange product for broadcasters and content creators, at Broadcast Video Expo 2011. New features include support for Apple ProRes and DNxHD, enabling Avid and Final Cut Pro users to achieve further efficiencies from their file-based workflows. Marquis will be demonstrating Parking with Tyrell CCT on stand L22 at the show.

Parking uses a simple 'one-click' step to facilitate the movement of edit sequences and timelines, including edit decisions, subclips, transitions, effects and audio levels, from Avid or Final Cut Pro dedicated edit storage to generic low-cost storage. By operating as a background process, Parking allows operators to continue editing while the sequences are being parked. The entirety of each selected clip in the sequence is transferred and converted for archive. As well as supporting ProRes and DNxHD, Parking can also be used for workflows using JFIF, XDCAM HD and Avid for Mac files.

Parking frees up valuable edit storage in a drag and drop action so that users can more easily manage their work and make better use of their editing resources. This is particularly relevant to HD production where managing storage efficiently is critical. By keeping essence and edit decisions together in an open file, Parking allows editing to be resumed at any time in the future, without any need to re-ingest and conform media whether it is days, weeks or months after the initial edit has finished. In this way, it also simplifies tasks such as versioning and repurposing of media, and helps teams of editors in different geographical locations to share content.

"Parking enhances and optimises creative workflows by freeing up local storage, simplifying access to archived content and facilitating collaboration," said Peter Lambert, Sales Director, Marquis Broadcast. "It is a very cost-effective tool that can make a real difference to all digital post workflows, particularly in the present climate where everyone is looking to increase efficiency and reduce expenditure."

Bridging at BVE

Marquis will also be demonstrating Bridging at BVE 2011. Bridging facilitates mixed Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid edit environments by providing a simple drag and drop method for editors to exchange timelines between systems. Bridging also gives facility managers more flexibility when organising projects and allocating resources as Avid and Final Cut Pro systems can be easily integrated into a single collaborative and efficient workflow.

Parking and Bridging are built on Marquis' Media Highway Technology, a highly advanced, proven technology on which all Marquis products are built, including Medway, the company's flagship media transfer and format conversion software. It provides video file format rewrapping, video codec transcoding, audio channel routing and metadata interchange between media production, MAM and distribution systems.

Parking 1.3 and Bridging are available immediately from Marquis Broadcast and its worldwide network of business partners.   AddThis Social Bookmark Button
