Marquis’ Project Parking Provides Flawless Editorial Flexibility for Zodiak Rights

Zodiak Rights has saved time and improved editorial flexibility with Marquis Broadcast’s archive and retrieve solution: Project Parking.

Zodiak Rights, the international distribution and rights exploitation division of Zodiak Media, known for award-winning scripted programming including: Being Human the supernatural hit for BBC Three and Syfy US; and Wallander the BAFTA award-winning drama series for BBC One starring Kenneth Branagh, has used Project Parking to help create multiple promos for various projects including material for miptv and mipcom.

Project Parking has been invaluable to assist with this process.”

“Project Parking is an archive and restore solution which allows us to create a complete copy of any project onto any storage device,” continues Glennon. “Previously, we would lay out a flattened file as a master, then need to go back and find all original material in multiple locations to re-create the rushes to make a new promo version if required. This was a labour intensive process. However, now by using Project Parking, we don’t need to scrub the rushes to free-up the edit storage as we can store the project and all the media files associated with it together, offline.

“From an editorial perspective, because this avoids the need to re-create the original edit, we can simply find and tailor the content as necessary,” confirms Glennon. “Time is saved and we also have infinitely more editorial flexibility due to the ease of access of the files. The team has described Project Parking as flawless. It is simple to use and gets the job done.”
