Paul Glasgow, sales and marketing director, Marquis Broadcast explains: “EDIT BRIDGE allows non-Avid editors to connect to an Avid Interplay based system so content is discoverable and editable in other applications. The solution is currently in use and valued by customers across the globe.
“A key advantage of the new Enterprise version is that EDIT BRIDGE requires just one Interplay Web Services connection for all editors concurrently connected to the EDIT BRIDGE server, it aggregates all requests and presents these as a single consolidated stream to Interplay,” confirms Glasgow. “This reduces the communications demands on Avid Interplay compared with multiple individually connected editors.
“This is an important development as given appropriate network and scaling, it will enable potentially hundreds of Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC, Adobe After Effects® CC and Apple FCP X users to connect to Interplay ISIS/NEXIS at the same time,” continues Glasgow. “As a result, it is the ideal solution for large broadcasters, universities and production centres that have both Avid Interplay and hundreds (or thousands) of desktops running Adobe® Premiere® Pro CC or Apple FCP X.”
At NAB 2017, Marquis Broadcast will also release an enterprise version of Worx4 Pro, a media discovery tool for Adobe® Premiere® ProCC that was first introduced at IBC last year. Worx4 Pro identifies where all the media in a project is stored and ensures that all associated media is online and saved with the project. Glasgow confirms: “This really helps with operations and project integrity meaning editors never need deliver a project with missing media.”
Glasgow concludes: “Marquis’ deep understanding and industry expertise developed over many years means our clients can take full advantage of our solutions to solve common technical challenges. This leaves them free to focus on the business of creativity necessary to develop the world-class content for which they are known.”
