Marquis Announces Medway Support for DigitalArc MAM SystemsMedway media exchange solution by adding support for the KONAN DigitalArc series (March 06, 2006)
Marquis Broadcast, specialist in broadcast workflow operations and software solutions, announced today a major leap towards true end-to-end interoperability of broadcast workflow systems, enhancing its Medway media exchange solution by adding support for the KONAN DigitalArc series of componentized media asset management (MAM) solutions from KONAN Digital.
KONAN Digital, a leading MAM provider to the broadcast, corporate enterprise and content creation markets, and Marquis Broadcast will showcase the benefits of this new functionality in live demonstrations at NAB 2006 (April 22-26, 2006 in Las Vegas), at the Konan Digital booth SL1835.
Marquis and KONAN have successfully integrated and tested these new capabilities in several multi-vendor broadcast and production environments, using Medway to seamlessly transfer media files between the DigitalArc MAM solutions and other manufacturers broadcasting systems. The tests were conducted using a range of files formats and protocol standards, including MXF, AAF and OMF, as well as Konan Digital EDLs.
Broadcasters are no longer ?locked-in to proprietary systems in order to achieve end-to-end interoperability. Medway manages both media files and their associated metadata in a format-independent manner, enabling media to be exchanged and utilized seamlessly by components across the entire range of broadcast equipment, from ingest servers to emission eliminating unnecessary format conversions and overcoming the restrictions of a single-source environment.
Format independent, with flexible APIs and broadcast-centric functionality for rapid integration, Medway and KONAN DigitalArc combine to give broadcasters the tools to build facilities that realize both the technological and economic benefits driven by open standards based interoperability.
