Marquis Broadcast Debuts Parking at IBC 2009New Media Archive Product Increases Flexibility and Reduces Overheads in Digital Post and Broadcasting Workflows (September 02, 2009)
DMN Newswire--2009-9-2--Marquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software, is debuting Parking, a new media archive product for digital post and broadcast workflows, at IBC 2009 (Stand 2.A58). Parking allows users to adopt a highly flexible approach to their use of resources, and make significant savings on storage overheads.
Parking provides a simple and fast 'one click' method of moving projects from dedicated editing storage to archive or generic low-cost storage. Long term archives can be made to removable tape media for example for insurance purposes or for long term library storage. In this way, Parking helps to improve cost efficiencies for post and broadcasting workflows by freeing up valuable editing storage and allowing users to more easily manage clients' libraries.
Parking keeps essence and metadata together so that editing can be resumed at any time in the future without the need to re-ingest and conform whether it is days, weeks or months after the initial edit has finished. This level of flexibility allows scheduling to be changed as required to make best use of available resources - both in terms of systems and people. Parking uses an open MXF OP1A format wrapped in a TAR file which enables archived files to be read easily by a range of applications or simply transferred between storage locations.
"We are very excited to be showing Parking at IBC for the first time," said Granby Patrick, Partner Director, Technology. "Parking is a very simple but effective new product that will help customers to structure work more flexibly between their online edit storage systems and lower cost archive systems, saving considerable time and money."
Parking functionality is available immediately as part of Marquis' Medway file conversion and software integration product, and will be available from November 2009 as a stand-alone product.
