Project Parking offers an intuitive toolset to analyse and manage media to optimise shared storage utilisation. In one single application Project Parking analyzes all Avid projects and media to identify which projects are using up most space and take appropriate action to transfer, archive or delete. It allows the analysis of all Avid projects and workspaces on shared edit storage by size, age and location. Projects can be copied to any storage device, taken offsite to re-edit and then later merged back on-line.
