(March 30, 2012) Marquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software, will reveal its latest media integration solutions at NAB 2012. The enhanced control capabilities of Medway 2.6, the latest version of its flagship media integration product, will be shown for the first time at NAB 2012 on booth SL12205. In addition, Marquis will demonstrate ‘Project Parking’, its new Avid archiving solution, which offers a fast and cost effective archive and restore process by creating a complete copy of any Avid project onto any storage device, plus X2Pro Audio Convert, its new cutting edge conversion application for delivering Final Cut Pro X projects to Avid Pro Tools for audio finishing.
“Our range of media integration products are designed for the data-intensive and challenging requirements of today's fast-paced broadcasting environments,” explains Chris Steele, product manager, Marquis Broadcast. “We aim to enable broadcasters and other users of digital media to achieve maximum efficiencies from their workflow processes and we are delighted to be demonstrating these new key product introductions at NAB this year.”
Medway 2.6 is a sophisticated software tool kit delivering a seamless and cost-effective integration between leading broadcast content applications. By unifying multi-vendor systems, Medway provides technical and operational workflows that optimise and integrate media clip and sequence transfers, media format conversion and transcoding, and metadata capture and integration. Medway 2.6 will now include Pre-Flight Check to verify a transfer before commencement, enhanced Audio Matrixing with Panning which allows for detailed control over how the input channels are mapped to the output channels, the ability to conform EDLs into single clips and support for Avid Media Composer 6 on both Windows and Mac platforms.
Project Parking provides a simple vehicle for archiving all media associated with a project, enabling Avid users to archive complete projects safely, quickly and easily between systems within the same facility or between sites. The portable nature of parked projects also makes them ideal for disaster recovery procedures, business continuity and inter-site workflows.
X2Pro uses Marquis’ Media Highway, the core technology employed by Marquis’ media integration products to integrate Final Cut Pro X into professional audio workflows, delivering seamless integration between the two applications. In this way, X2Pro provides a smooth workflow between Final Cut Pro X and Avid Pro Tools, allowing users to take full advantage of the functionality of these world-class products now and in the future.
