Medway is an ultra-scalable media centric middleware. Medway technology is widely used all over the world by some of the biggest names in the broadcast and media industry. Medway is now cloud enabled bringing the richest set of legacy and contemporary integrations to cloud and hybrid workflows.
Cloud Storage Support
Marquis Broadcast’s Medway product offers integration between incompatible systems in media production workflows, now supports S3 cloud storage such as IBM Cloud Object Storage and Amazon S3.
Medway will read and write to S3 storage as it would to other forms of storage. Any media production facilities using Medway to link together different systems in their workflows, now have the option to include sending media to, or retrieving it from, cloud storage.
Medway thus makes it possible for facilities to transition to the use of cloud storage without affecting their existing workflows.
4K Proxy Workflow
4K proxy workflows make it possible to produce 4k content without swamping your edit storage.
Marquis Broadcast’s Medway product offers integration between incompatible systems in media production workflows, now supports 4K media and enables proxy workflows.
Using a proxy workflow in your 4K production makes a huge saving in the amount of high performance edit storage that you need in order to edit your content. At the same time it minimises the movement of 4K media around your network.
Original 4K media can be stored on tier 2 storage and HD proxies generated by Medway and delivered to your Avid ISIS or NEXIS storage. This media can then be edited in Media Composer in the usual way. Once the edit is complete, the editor simply sends an AAF to Medway (Send To…). Medway uses this to fetch just the 4K that is used in the edited sequence plus handles and deliver it to NEXIS. The editor then just needs to initiate a re-link to replace the HD content with the 4K.
