Marquis Broadcast To Demo Hybrid Cloud Production

Marquis Broadcast is to demonstrate hybrid and pure-play cloud production at CABSAT 2018 later this month, Stand ZB6-C44.

Project Parking now features cloud support, delivering a multi-site Avid workflow, suitable for film production and broadcast. Project Parking provides project analytics, visualisation, management and archiving, and can be a valuable tool for billing for usage. It enables companies to understand the capacity of production, allowing them to export projects to tier two or cloud storage to make way for a larger incoming production on ISIS or NEXIS storage space.

Workspace Backup is a disaster recovery and business continuity solution that now natively supports cloud storage. Specifically designed to protect Avid ISIS and NEXIS systems, Workspace backup uses detailed analytics of Avid workspaces to ensure high levels of integrity of the backup, ensuring critical projects can be immediately and individually recovered to production in any location that can see the backup – whether in the cloud or tier two storage.

Workspace Sync delivers a higher level of protection, syncing workspaces – perhaps every 30 minutes – to a second ISIS or NEXIS. This is ideal for fast turnaround delivery deadline productions, e.g. nationwide talent shows, ensuring the maximum loss of work in progress is only 30 minutes.

Furthermore, Project Parking, Workspace Backup and Workspace Sync work together. A benefit is that using Project Parking analytics will prevent duplicate and orphaned media propagating into the Workspace Sync or Backup, saving storage and accelerating time-critical sync backup and recovery processes.

Chris Steele, Managing Director, Marquis Broadcast, said: "Cloud support for Project Parking makes it simple to move complete Avid projects, together with all the bins, sequences and media files, to any other location worldwide. In fact, we're enabling the easiest transformation to hybrid cloud post production."

Medway has also become cloud-enabled, allowing the most advanced cloud/ground workflows with advanced UHD transcoding. Simon Fearn, Produce Manager, Marquis Broadcast, explained: "Medway uses partial file retrieval of cloud assets together with cloud compute ultra-advanced Avid project proxy relinking. This means anyone, anywhere, could upload content to the cloud, then have Medway deliver proxies to an Avid production environment. It's a very efficient system."

Marquis is 100% agnostic in terms of cloud platform choice, so its S3 cloud enablement programme has included an intensive testing and validation programme with Amazon, Dell EMC, Caringo, Cloudian and IBM. Customers can take advantage of low cost performance and scalability of cloud storage with their preferred vendor. Marquis can also support hybrid storage environments, providing a choice of traditional storage alongside on-premise and in-cloud environments.
