Marquis Launches Energy Audit Service

Marquis Media has launched an energy efficiency service to help broadcasters with the planning and design of new development projects.
The Energy Platform Audit is designed to deal with the higher levels of power usage caused by a modern dependence on digital IT based systems used in broadcast production, playout and distribution technology.
"Marquis provides an assessment of existing infrastructure to ensure organisations operating in the broadcast and media space can sustain growth and are not constrained in the future," a statement from the company said.
"The foundation of any broadcast operation and business success is its energy platform. This includes power and cooling systems, thermal management, EMC and earthing, on which any operation is totally reliant," explains Mike Cronk, senior partner, Marquis Media Partners.
"In-fact, failure and unreliability of an energy platform will impact on service output more than any other aspect of a business as it is common to both the technical and administrative activities – resulting in reduced profitability and growth and disenfranchised audiences."
"Marquis will give an expert assessment and audit of existing infrastructure identification of any primary failure modes and provide expertise to evaluate power and cooling infrastructure, independent advice, a fully documented risk assessment and a detailed plan on how to address any issues, including areas such as disaster recovery," said Mr Cronk.
Two recent examples of where Marquis Media Partners has given independent advice are MBC in Dubai and SIS in the UK.
"We have really benefited from Marquis’ independent advice in managing our local contractor – not only giving MBC great value but the confidence that we have a sound and proven energy platform," said Andy Palmer, technology director, MBC.
"This is the second major project Marquis has successfully delivered for SIS. We are delighted with the service and attention to detail," said Jason Barker, director, Satellite Information Systems.
"Working in a partnership with our clients and their staff is at the heart of our philosophy. The expertise our consultants have comes from many years in the industry and they are available help with projects, assisting with strategy or working to supply a broader range of advisory services," confirms Cronk.
