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.
Marquis Broadcast will launch Parking V5, its range of Avid storage management products, at IBC 2016 on booth 7.G05.
Project Parking archives, moves and restores Avid projects and analyses and manages media to optimise edit storage utilisation, Project Parking is certified and supported by Avid and used around the world to help manage Avid edit storage. Also in the Parking range, is Workspace Parking: Marquis’ ‘set & forget’ disaster recovery solution for Avid workspaces designed to get editors back up and running in minutes. The Parking family of products backs-up and protects over 30 PetaBytes of both ISIS and NEXIS storage worldwide.
Optimising edit storage, keeping track of where and which assets are used within a project, knowing how media is distributed between workspaces and when it is safe to delete content are real challenges faced with editing workgroups using shared projects.
PARKING from Marquis Broadcast was conceived with these challenges in mind and our range of solutions provide an Avid project and workspace aware toolset to analyse, manage and optimise shared storage.
