Joint offering delivers simple, reliable Avid workspace protection with ultra-low-cost cloud backup and rapid recovery in minutes versus days or weeks

NAB Show (Booths: Marquis SU6225 and Wasabi SL15216) – Marquis Broadcast, which provides a range of media integration products designed for the data-intensive and challenging requirements of today's fast-paced media production environments, and Wasabi, the hot cloud storage company that delivers the lowest prices and fastest performance in the industry, have partnered to help media and entertainment (M&E) companies accelerate backup and recovery, reduce risks and save money. The integrated solution lets users back up business-critical Avid workspaces to the cloud, quickly, securely and cost-effectively, with significantly longer retention periods than traditional on-site backup solutions.

eMAM and MEWS provide an integrated solution for Avid editing environments

Empress Media Asset Management (Empress), developer of the widely used eMAM media asset management platform, has integrated technologies from Marquis Broadcast to provide Avid Media Composer users with the tools to manage and move media between eMAM and Media Composer. By combining Marquis Medway Engine Web Service (MEWS) with eMAM, users can deliver media to a standalone Avid edit workstation, a shared network configuration, or an Interplay system. 

Marquis Broadcast will be showcasing comprehensive support for the cloud in its latest products. These include the Workspace Tools family of world-class disaster recovery and business continuity tools for Avid® work-in-progress, now also using cloud storage. Cloud-based backup and storage offers many advantages and protection for studios, post-production houses and broadcasters – Marquis’s tools help simplify workflows and collaboration associated with the backup, including new ΔP (Delta Parking) versioning.

Marquis Broadcast will be exhibiting at the upcoming CABSAT show next month in Dubai, on stand ZB6-C44, where it will demonstrate how its products enable and accelerate hybrid and pure-play cloud production, making new, more efficient workflows possible and transforming productions.

There’s been a big shift in the industry recently, from media producers talking about the cloud to actually using it. Marquis is now being called upon to deploy solutions that directly integrate to the cloud – whether private or public. Often this is around making the best of both cloud and traditional on-premise facilities, with hybrid workflows. Marquis Broadcast’s major products now support cloud storage and cloud compute when appropriate. Its Project Parking and Workspace Backup solutions additionally support SwiftStack and Microsoft Azure. 

Marquis Broadcast’s Worx4 X media management tool saved over 97% storage space and accelerated production delivery for Tour de France Apple FCP X editor, Peter Wiggins

Since its launch earlier this year, the new Worx4 X media managing application from Marquis Broadcast has proved indispensable with editors, producers and educators, helping them consolidate and manage their media. The software has recently been used on the Tour de France production for ITV4. It drastically reduced the size of their completed Apple FCP X projects by analysing the media that had been used, then creating a folder of trimmed media. Importantly, this approach also meant no loss in quality.
