Medway

Media and metadata automated workflow software.

Save time & money with integrated file based workflows

MEDWAY is a workflow automation solution. It is highly configurable and integrates broadcast platforms by providing transfer and format conversion workflows for media and metadata.

Designed specifically to meet the demands of the most challenging of production environments, MEDWAY is suitable for Broadcast, Production, Post Production, Newsrooms and Playout facilities.

In large scale installations MEDWAY acts as the central hub, providing multiple, simultaneous, and high-volume media and metadata integration services across best-of-breed systems from multiple vendors.

Complex workflows are hampered by time consuming and repetitive operations brought on by file incompatibilities.

MEDWAY, Marquis' flagship product, uses an intuitive drag and drop interface which allows for the exchange of media between a wide range of 'Best of Breed' broadcast systems in a transparent and user friendly way.

Medway can be described as an "interoperability engine" that enables a complete digital workflow, ensuring products such as Edit Platforms, either standalone or using Shared storage and third-party Video Servers can work seamlessly together.

However, MEDWAY offers much more power and flexibility and can be connected to Media Asset Management systems. It can source reference edits from Browse Systems, integrate with Archive Management systems and can supply file registration to, or be directly controlled by, Automation Systems. All of these features can be customised to suit the requirements for specific workflow or business solutions.
