NAB Reflections: Marquis opens doors with GV Stratus
At NAB Grass Valley announced a partnership with Marquis Broadcast to expand the functionality and capability of its GV Stratus Nonlinear Media Production toolset and the K2 Summit media server. Grass Valley will incorporate Marquis’ MEWS API services to enable the fast exchange of files between GV Stratus and Avid solutions, as well as other third-party products. Marquis’ technology will also be used to enable the interoperability with other products requiring OP Atom file creation and additional file transfer types.
“Partnering with Grass Valley will open new doors for the entire broadcast media chain. Our MEWS API solution coupled with Grass Valley’s technology lets customers transfer files back and forth between third-party solutions more quickly and simply, resulting in time-savings for broadcasters and customers across the board,” commented Peter Davies, Director, Marquis Broadcast.
GV Stratus’ service-oriented architecture (SOA) allows customers to purchase, combine, and configure just the functional components they need to build and orchestrate the most efficient workflows for their production environments with GV Stratus News, GV Stratus Live, GV Stratus Digital Media Platforms (DMP), and GV Stratus Playout.
A key benefit of Stratus for the newsroom is its full compatibility with the MOS protocol, which allows it to interface with and take programming instructions from most newsroom computer systems. It also integrates with Grass Valley K2 media servers and storage to offer an expandable foundation for new applications and workflows.
