NewTek and Marquis partner to ‘Edit While Capture’
NewTek and Marquis have announced a collaboration to enable automated ingest to Avid. Medway, Marquis’ workflow automation solution, which enables media and metadata integration with leading broadcast content applications, now supports NewTek’s TriCaster multi-camera video production system to provide broadcasters and content creators with a cost effective ingest to edit workflow.
“The key benefit of the integration is that content can now be transferred automatically from TriCaster to Avid via Medway while the source is still in record,” confirms Chris Steele, managing director, Marquis Broadcast. “To achieve this, Medway has been expanded to create an additional ‘Server’ type for the TriCaster that uses the NewTek API to browse for clips and to manage the transfer of media, creating the Avid essence as MXF OP atoms. The workflow will support both Interplay PAM and non-Interplay based Avid systems. Interplay PAM systems allow Medway to automatically check-in clips at the start of the transfer to allow the support for ‘Edit while Capture’ on the growing file.”
Andrew Cross, president and CTO for NewTek explains: “Everybody has a story. With TriCaster, any production, keynote presentation, webcast, online training and sporting event can all look just like network television. Our collaboration with Marquis now speeds-up and smoothes the process of content transfer between ingest and edit, enabling users to focus on creating even more compelling presentations and programming.”
