Middleware solution allows edit while ingest for fastest workflow from live feeds

Pan-African broadcaster, Kwesé, has taken delivery of a Marquis Broadcast Medway system, supplied by Zimele Broadcast, to streamline its sports production and facilitate fast-turnaround coverage of a recent major sporting event in Asia. The Medway middleware was retrofitted to an Avid® NEXIS®/ Interplay®, Oracle DIVA and Dell EMC Isilon infrastructure, to enable Kwesé’s team to edit while ingesting media for the fastest possible turnaround of incoming live feeds. Importantly, Medway enabled this critical functionality without needing to replace any existing systems.

Valuable Interplay metadata can be saved and searched

Marquis Broadcast is launching its new Interplay Metadata Export Tool at NAB 2018, which will enable customers to take an Avid® Interplay® project and export all metadata for all assets in the project – essential when archiving projects from an Interplay system. Avid Interplay PAM has become a mainstay of many production workflows, relied upon daily by large and small production facilities around the world to find, track, archive and deliver projects. The Interplay Metadata Export Tool (IMET) copies and externalises Interplay metadata, making it searchable via a browser interface by operational staff. Importantly, the source externalised metadata record in Interplay can be safely deleted, thus reducing the size of the Interplay database and thereby improving the system’s performance, stability and indexing speed.

The cloud compute hosted Medway Engine Web Service (MEWS) brings the power of Medway to the cloud and offers a simple and fast way to deploy hybrid cloud/ground integrations.
