Business Continuity for Avid Post Production

What if …… my Post House went ‘off line’ one day?

With the scale of shared storage and number of concurrent editing clients increasing so dramatically over recent years, the amount of ‘work in progress’ and the value of the ‘in production’ assets in the post production facility can often run into millions of pounds. It represents a significant ‘concentration of risk’. Ever shortening and demanding delivery schedules has meant the risk to a major post production business from IT failures or environmental hazards such as fire or flood, or even human error, has become intensified to an almost un-insurable risk. For top post companies, simply backing up data or implementing a disaster recovery scheme has become too crude, too slow and too late, as it may take several days to restore work in progress. The advent of 4K workflows has made the problem even larger.

Moving Edit Storage

Upgrading your edit storage can be a fraught and worrying process for any media production facility. Now Marquis Broadcast can present a number of alternative strategies to help you do this without risk, and with transparency at every step.

In this white paper we present a number of different strategies. Which one you choose will depend upon the way you organise your Avid projects and media, how confident you are that your editors follow that organisation, and the resources you have available.
