Point-to-point secure connection for replication, archive, copy, share and sync processes
25th July 2018 – Marquis Broadcast has launched Fotonflite™ – a high-performance, secure ‘on-the-fly’, point-to-point transfer system for Avid Media Composer projects and media workspaces. It allows files to be moved between source Avid ISIS/NEXIS systems and a range of target storage types, including Avid, generic and proprietary storage. Fotonflite™ is unique in its ability to directly connect and securely synchronise live Avid ISIS/NEXIS systems, especially with Avid work-in-progress, and is ideal for connecting production centres over the internet, for example, Pinewood and Hollywood.
Marquis Broadcast’s disaster recovery tool at heart of in-house production facility.
Jyske Bank prides itself on its innovative corporate culture – and rightly so. Back in October 2008, Jyske Bank was the first bank in the world to open an internet-based TV station – jyskebank.tv. Every day, this station brings financial news and in-depth economic programmes, along with informative and entertaining journalistic features from Denmark and abroad, all created using Avid systems. Jyske Bank decided to invest in Workspace Backup from Marquis Broadcast after a rather unfortunate RAID service error on their Avid ISIS a few months back, which meant they lost some of their media. This new Workspace Backup system is now being used to take daily backups of Avid work-in-progress, as part of Jyske Bank’s disaster recovery systems.
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.
