News: Marquis to Launch Remote Workflow Monitoring at NAB
(March 10, 2016) Marquis Broadcast, experts in content workflows and media integration software, specialise in moving media and metadata. The Company has announced it will launch Medway Monitoring at NAB this year. The new solution provides the ability to monitor multiple Medway systems from anywhere with a live health check of Avid and Medway workflows through a web server, allowing monitoring to take place remotely. Marquis will demonstrate Medway Monitoring for the first time at NAB on booth SL8730. Chris Steele, managing director, Marquis Broadcast explains: “Complex workflows are hampered by time consuming and repetitive operations brought on by a variety of formats. Medway is a flexible media and metadata workflow automation solution which eliminates file incompatibilities. By providing transfer and format conversion workflows for video, audio, data and metadata, Medway allows for the exchange of media and metadata between broadcast systems in a fast, transparent and cost effective way, enabling its users to operate complete file based workflow in mixed format environments.
“The new Medway Monitoring application now eliminates the need for local software to ‘see what’s going on’ inside the workflow. This and our Medway Engine Web Services product, pave the way for cloud or data centre operation,” continues Steele. “The fresh design of the interface is intuitive and easy to navigate enabling users to focus on the business of media production while we take care of the technical know-how.
“To realise the many advantages that the move to digital file based workflows creates, we must be working towards a seamless and efficient process,” confirms Steele. “Our solutions help to achieve this by solving incompatibility challenges by enabling competing manufacturers’ products to work together efficiently. As well as broadcasters, we also work with key manufacturers to ensure their solutions can integrate with other vendors’ products. So whatever your incompatibility problem, come and talk to us at NAB to see how our highly configurable interoperability engine Medway and the new Medway Monitoring might help you overcome some of your common technical challenges.”
Medway Monitoring will be available shortly after NAB and is free for existing Medway customers with an active support agreement.
