Kwesé Deploys Marquis Broadcast Medway System

News Image
Pan-African broadcaster Kwesé has retrofitted a Marquis Broadcast Medway system to an Avid® NEXIS®/ Interplay®, Oracle DIVA and Dell EMC Isilon infrastructure, to streamline workflow.

The system will facilitate fast turnaround coverage of a recent sporting event in Asia, and allow the team to edit while ingesting media. Medway enabled this critical functionality without needing to replace any existing systems.

Kwesé uses Imagine Communications' Nexio® AMP® video server for live ingests of sports feeds, attached to Nexio Farad™ storage, while its edit systems are connected to the Avid NEXIS software-defined storage platform. Moving files between these two systems previously meant waiting for recordings to finish before being able to start editing, which was not ideal when creating sports highlights. Marquis Broadcast's Medway middleware solution has now provided Kwesé's sports edit team with instant access to footage, plus the ability to edit while growing. This has dramatically reduced turnaround times of sport content, without the need to update any of its existing editing systems or storage.

Medway is a very powerful and scalable media-centric middleware solution, enabling a complete digital workflow to ensure edit platforms, MAMs, video servers and archive systems can work seamlessly together. Designed to meet the demands of the most challenging production environments, Medway is used globally by broadcast, production, post production, newsrooms and playout facilities. It offers integration between incompatible systems in media production workflows and is cloud-enabled too, bringing the richest set of legacy and contemporary integrations to cloud and hybrid workflows.

Medway simplifies Avid workflow complexity by use of the world's largest library of certified workflow and metadata integrations. It has enabled Kwesé to build out the precise workflow it needed, with support from Marquis during setup and testing, delivering a cost-effective integration between its broadcast content applications and edit platforms – both standalone and using shared storage. This new workflow is now used daily by Kwesé, reducing turnaround times and providing an improved offering to viewers.

"The team from Marquis Medway were very helpful every step of the way, assisting us with seamless setup and testing," explained Kwesé's Head of Broadcast Engineering, Baxter de Jager. "This system is a perfect addition to our workflow."
