Middleware solution allows edit while ingest for fastest workflow from live feeds
Pan-African broadcaster, Kwesé, has taken delivery of a Marquis Broadcast Medway system, supplied by Zimele Broadcast, to streamline its sports production and facilitate fast-turnaround coverage of a recent major sporting event in Asia. The Medway middleware was retrofitted to an Avid® NEXIS®/ Interplay®, Oracle DIVA and Dell EMC Isilon infrastructure, to enable Kwesé’s team to edit while ingesting media for the fastest possible turnaround of incoming live feeds. Importantly, Medway enabled this critical functionality without needing to replace any existing systems.
Joint offering delivers simple, reliable Avid workspace protection with ultra-low-cost cloud backup and rapid recovery in minutes versus days or weeks
26th March 2018 - NAB Show (Booths: Marquis SU6225 and Wasabi SL15216) – Marquis Broadcast, which provides a range of media integration products designed for the data-intensive and challenging requirements of today's fast-paced media production environments, and Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company that delivers the lowest prices and fastest performance in the industry, have partnered to help media and entertainment (M&E) companies accelerate backup and recovery, reduce risks and save money. The integrated solution lets users back up business-critical Avid workspaces to the cloud, quickly, securely and cost-effectively, with significantly longer retention periods than traditional on-site backup solutions.
Valuable Interplay metadata can be saved and searched
Marquis Broadcast is launching its new Interplay Metadata Export Tool at NAB 2018, which will enable customers to take an Avid® Interplay® project and export all metadata for all assets in the project – essential when archiving projects from an Interplay system. Avid Interplay PAM has become a mainstay of many production workflows, relied upon daily by large and small production facilities around the world to find, track, archive and deliver projects. The Interplay Metadata Export Tool (IMET) copies and externalises Interplay metadata, making it searchable via a browser interface by operational staff. Importantly, the source externalised metadata record in Interplay can be safely deleted, thus reducing the size of the Interplay database and thereby improving the system’s performance, stability and indexing speed.
Marquis Broadcast launches cloud capabilities for Medway, with automatic transcoding, download integration and relink functions
Marquis Broadcast will showcase its Medway Cloud Workflow at NAB 2018, providing seamless integration between local and cloud-based projects. Medway is a very powerful and scalable media-centric middleware solution. It uniquely operates at ‘sequence level’, which enables a complete digital workflow to ensure edit platforms, MAMs, video servers and archive systems work seamlessly together. The cloud compute hosted Medway Engine Web Service (MEWS) brings the power of Medway to the cloud and offers a simple and fast way to deploy hybrid cloud/ground integrations.
Marquis Broadcast will launch its new Premiere Parking software at NAB (booth SU6225), which offers a fast and easy way for Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC (part of the Adobe Creative Cloud) users to be able to safely move, transfer and share projects.
