Marquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software, has appointed Intraware Australia as a new business partner for its Media Highway Technology product line. Through the newly formed partnership Intraware will offer Marquis Broadcast’s range of utilities that create elegant file based workflows and efficiencies by overcoming compatibility, storage and workflow complexities.
Sequence Parking, Project Parking and Bridging each provide specific functionality to solve workflow issues within Broadcast and Post Production.
Sequence Parking is a cost-effective utility for creating re-editable archives or transferring sequences between different edit locations which is particularly relevant for HD and 3D production where the larger file sizes impact significantly on limited edit resources.
Sequence Parking provides a powerful and cost effective ‘one click’ method for moving both edit sequences and media in a single background operation. Sequence media is consolidated with definable handles, automatically creating a reduced version to allow deletion of excess rushes whilst maximising the throughput of the edit environment. The portable nature of parked sequences makes them ideal candidates to support disaster recovery, business continuity and inter-site workflows.
Project Parking extends the ‘parking’ concept to allow editors or Resource Managers to safely archive and restore complete Avid Projects. Users can copy Avid Projects quickly and easily to low cost storage, then restore either back to the local Avid Projects or to a different network location.
Finally, Marquis Broadcast’s Bridging, a sequence converter for Avid and Apple FCP editors, is an automatic background utility that enables editors to exchange sequences for cross platform collaboration and workflow migration. Aimed at multiple users of both Avid and Apple FCP Bridging enables facility managers to benefit from improved flexibility when organising projects and allocating resources so Avid and Apple systems can be easily integrated into a single workflow.
“We are delighted to be representing such an innovative software vendor in this region. The Parking software, in particular, enables editors to use data tape as if it was video tape … being able to archive your sequence or project from either the Avid of Final Cut timelines and have all the video assets collected and archived automatically is just wonderful functionality” said Steve Baird, Intraware Australia, Channel Manager.
“Intraware has a strong presence in Australia and New Zealand and will provide an invaluable resource for us as we expand our customer base in Australasia,” said Chris Steele, Product Manager, Marquis Broadcast. “We are delighted to be working alongside them.”
