News: Marquis Helps OKNO-TV’s Customers Park Projects
(Pangbourne Berkshire, United Kingdom--February 10, 2014) Marquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software has today announced Russian Systems Integrator, OKNOTV, has selected Marquis’ Project Parking to assist its broadcast customers to manage their edit storage more effectively. Project Parking is now being used to enable editors at client sites to analyse all the projects and media on their edit storage by size, project, location, age, duplicated or orphaned files and then archive files to second tier storage, or delete unused media at the touch of a button, take snapshots of versions of projects, or move from one location to another, while still maintaining a usable and easily accessible format for future use.
“Project Parking allows the transfer of projects in order to back-up content and allow completed parked projects to be restored at ‘the touch of a button’ if required,” explains Ben Miles, business development manager, Marquis Broadcast. “In this way, one single application Project Parking gives users the tools to improve the efficient use of their edit storage - reducing capital expenditure on additional edit storage and improving the reliability and speed of archiving.
”Project Parking works by analysing all projects and media across all workspaces and allows them to be viewed in a user-friendly way. This enables the user to rank projects in the most appropriate way. This may be in order of total file size, number of files associated with a project, which workspaces the media is on, and whether media is off-line. The solution also identifies the location of any duplicate files and any orphaned media not associated with a project. The bin archive functionality in Project Parking then allows individual bins or folders of bins to be included or excluded in order to move media to second tier storage. Retrieval is also straight forward and can be easily achieved by restoring whole projects or just the required bins of an archived project for re-editing.
