BVE 2018: Marquis Broadcast to show Delta Parking cloud functionality
Marquis Broadcast is showcase its world-class disaster recovery and business continuity tools at BVE (stand K18-POD4), including new Delta Parking versioning for its Workspace Tools and Project Parking systems, featuring full support for conventional and cloud storage.
The products enable and accelerate hybrid and pure-play cloud production, protecting distributed work in progress, making more efficient workflows possible to transform production efficiency. Cloud-based backup and storage offers many advantages and protection for studios, post-production houses and broadcasters – Marquis’s tools help simplify workflows and collaboration associated with the backup, including new Delta Parking versioning.
Delta Parking is a newly-exposed versioning capability for Avid Projects that have been externalised to cloud or Tier 2 storage by either Marquis Project Parking or Workspace Backup.
Delta Parking enables Avid projects that are held in offline storage to be both version-able and distributable between local and remote Media Composer editors. Since only the changes are written back, huge network transfer and storage efficiencies can be realised, making remote productions practical even at the highest of resolutions.
Recently Avid Platform Certified, the Workspace Tools products from Marquis – comprising Workspace Backup and Workspace Sync – currently support large scale, backup and sync applications.
Using Workspace Tools, all work in progress can now be secured in cloud infrastructure; this means the cloud can now become the main repository for project files and media. Simple navigation tools allow Media Composer editors to visualise and navigate into any version, project or bin in the backup, be it in Tier 2 storage and/or cloud.
Project Parking – the industry gold standard for Avid storage management, analytics visualisation and project portability – also features cloud support, delivering seamless management for Avid ISIS or NEXIS storage and an ideal productivity tool for film production, post and broadcast.
Project Parking provides project analytics, visualisation and archiving and can be a valuable tool for billing for usage. It helps companies understand the capacity of productions, allowing them to easily export projects to tier two or cloud storage to make way for a larger incoming production on valuable ISIS or NEXIS storage space.
