The main challenge with editing workgroups and shared projects is keeping track of where and which assets are used within a project (and other projects). In particular, how media is distributed between workspaces and when is it safe to delete content.

Marquis’ PARKING was conceived with this challenge in mind by creating an application that can both manage archives and optimise storage utilisation.

In one single application PROJECT PARKING analyses all Avid projects and media to identify which projects are using up most space and take appropriate action to transfer, archive or delete.

Marquis has made available as a download a FREE VERSION of the ‘Parking’ storage management solution which analyses Avid storage and projects and presents the results.
