Workspace Sync provides a higher level of protection, intelligently syncing workspaces – perhaps every 30 minutes – to Avid shared storage or Avid NEXIS. This is ideal for intensive, fast turnaround, hard delivery deadline productions, such as nationwide talent shows, ensuring the maximum loss of work in progress is only 30 minutes.
Already Avid-certified, Marquis Broadcast’s Project Parking tool is the industry gold-standard for Avid storage management analytics and project portability, providing project analytics, visualisation, management and archiving. All three Avid-certified products – Project Parking, Workspace Sync and Workspace Backup – work seamlessly together; using Project Parking analytics will prevent duplicate and orphaned media propagating into the Workspace Sync or Backup, saving significant amounts of storage whilst also accelerating time-critical sync backup and recovery processes. In addition, new Delta Parking versioning capabilities enable Avid projects that are held in offline storage to be both version-able and distributable between local and remote Media Composer editors. Since only the changes are written back, huge network transfer and storage efficiencies can be realised, making remote productions practical even at the highest of resolutions.
Ed Caracappa, Senior Director, Business Development, Avid, commented “Marquis is one of the charter members of the Avid Alliance Program, so we're thrilled that Marquis Workspace Tools is now Avid- certified. It provides disaster recovery and business continuity for Avid NEXIS joining the Marquis Parking suite of Avid NEXIS management, analytics and archive tools that are already certified.”
“We’re delighted to be expanding our Avid Certified Alliance Partner offerings with this latest certification for our Workspace Tools products,” added Chris Steele, Managing Director, Marquis Broadcast. “We work in partnership with Avid’s product development team, providing tools that will help our joint customers manage their Avid projects and media, especially as Avid shared storage capacities increase. Our products ensure disaster recovery, backup and business continuity can be simple to implement into any company’s business plans, with Avid certification indicative of our software’s compatibility.”
