Upgrading your edit storage can be a fraught and worrying process for any media production facility. Now Marquis Broadcast can present a number of alternative strategies to help you do this without risk, and with transparency at every step.
In this white paper we present a number of different strategies. Which one you choose will depend upon the way you organise your Avid projects and media, how confident you are that your editors follow that organisation, and the resources you have available.
Marquis Broadcast, experts in content workflows and media integration software, has announced that it has been selected as an Avid® Alliance Partner and that Marquis’ Project Parking, which is used around the world to cost effectively manage Avid storage, has been certified by Avid and will be distributed through Avid’s sales channels.

NEC Corporation of America (NEC), a leading technology integrator of advanced IT, communications and networking solutions, and Marquis Broadcast, an innovator in media integration products and workflow efficiency, today announced a new joint solution that provides media companies a highly efficient and cost-effective way to optimize the use of shared storage resources and ensure protection of media assets in the event of a disaster.
The new integrated solution, called HYDRAstor®/Marquis Project Parking, leverages NEC’s HYDRAstor Open Storage Suite capabilities and Marquis Broadcast’s core attribute of moving media and metadata between different systems in broadcast and post-production workflows. Media companies, with their heavy data usage, require a reliable storage off-load, which has become even more critical in this time of pervasive multi-media content delivery and regular image resolution increases to 4K and beyond. As the size of media assets drives data growth, media companies need a highly efficient and cost-effective way to optimize and secure shared storage resources.
