It is relied upon daily by large and small production facilities around the world to find, track, archive and deliver projects.

When people ask me exactly what I and Marquis Broadcast do, I say we make software for television and movie production. The next question is usually, do you know a famous actor, musician, personality? I'm afraid my world is more ordinary than that, often about resolving mind bending, complex integrations. Nothing too sexy or exciting, just making things work for the journalists, producers and creatives of the world. Some people also know of us for our big enterprise integrations for broadcasters and studios.
