Marquis Broadcast has been working with Object Matrix, manufacturer of MatrixStore, a disk based nearline and archive storage solution, designed to protect both video content and metadata in video workflows, to create a new solution to allow easy archiving and access to media assets.
With more content saved in more formats than ever before, easy access to media assets is an on-going challenge for facilities. The combination of Project Parking and MatrixStore potentially offers an economical answer to archiving and storing file-based content as it can free-up expensive shared storage by creating portable projects which can be stored off-line. Parked projects also provide significant advantages for disaster recovery procedures, business continuity and inter-site workflows.
The combination of Project Parking with MatrixStore provides customers with the peace of mind that all of the elements of a project will be protected in a highly resilient nearline platform that requires little or no management. Marquis’ Project Parking offers a fast and cost- effective archive and restore process by creating a complete copy of any Avid project and media onto any storage device. By providing a simple vehicle for archiving all media associated with a project, Project Parking enables Avid users to archive complete projects safely, quickly and easily between systems within the same facility or between sites.
