“FREE Parking analyses a facility’s Avid storage and enables editors to assess how it is being used, why it is perhaps full and how much space is wasted,” explains Chris Steele, managing director, Marquis Broadcast. “Editors can easily see how much space a single project is taking up and how much room is used up with orphan and duplicate media. FREE Parking is the only independent tool that can answer these pressing questions.
TV3, Ireland’s leading free-to-air commercial television network, is using Marquis’ complete Avid storage management solution, Project Parking, to assist in the management of media on its Avid Interplay and ISIS storage.
Project Parking identifies how space is used, removes unused and duplicate media, archives projects and moves projects with media to other storage or systems. Projects can also be merged from other systems without media duplication. The solution also monitors how media storage is used, regularly reporting on usage, showing usage over time, plus archiving projects and executing analysis in the background.
