Marquis Broadcast will be showcasing comprehensive support for the cloud in its latest products. These include the Workspace Tools family of world-class disaster recovery and business continuity tools for Avid® work-in-progress, now also using cloud storage. Cloud-based backup and storage offers many advantages and protection for studios, post-production houses and broadcasters – Marquis’s tools help simplify workflows and collaboration associated with the backup, including new ΔP (Delta Parking) versioning.

Marquis Broadcast will be exhibiting at the upcoming CABSAT show next month in Dubai, on stand ZB6-C44, where it will demonstrate how its products enable and accelerate hybrid and pure-play cloud production, making new, more efficient workflows possible and transforming productions.

There’s been a big shift in the industry recently, from media producers talking about the cloud to actually using it. Marquis is now being called upon to deploy solutions that directly integrate to the cloud – whether private or public. Often this is around making the best of both cloud and traditional on-premise facilities, with hybrid workflows. Marquis Broadcast’s major products now support cloud storage and cloud compute when appropriate. Its Project Parking and Workspace Backup solutions additionally support SwiftStack and Microsoft Azure. 

Marquis Broadcast’s Worx4 X media management tool saved over 97% storage space and accelerated production delivery for Tour de France Apple FCP X editor, Peter Wiggins

Since its launch earlier this year, the new Worx4 X media managing application from Marquis Broadcast has proved indispensable with editors, producers and educators, helping them consolidate and manage their media. The software has recently been used on the Tour de France production for ITV4. It drastically reduced the size of their completed Apple FCP X projects by analysing the media that had been used, then creating a folder of trimmed media. Importantly, this approach also meant no loss in quality. 

Advanced risk mitigation and protection for Avid ISIS and NEXIS storage

Workspace Tools from Marquis Broadcast, the leading manufacturer of media and metadata management tools for post-production and broadcast, has been upgraded to protect Avid® ISIS® / NEXIS™ work in progress. Combining Workspace Backup and Workspace Sync tools, the system offers the highest level of resilience and protection whilst providing the industry’s fastest recovery time when measured against the hardest performance benchmark – recovery to live production. Marquis will be demonstrating this new system on stand 7.G05 at IBC2017. 

Recovery to live production in minutes, not weeks

Entire workspaces can now be backed up to S3 storage, whether ground or cloud-based, allowing projects to be restored to anywhere that’s required.
