(Pangbourne Berkshire, United Kingdom--February 3, 2014) Marquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software has supplied the public television broadcaster Česká televize with its archive and retrieve solution: Project Parking. Česká televize, based in Prague, will now use Project Parking to help its production staff manage their edit storage more effectively.
“We are delighted that Česká televize has selected Project Parking to enable its editors to analyse and manage all the projects and media on their edit storage,” confirms Ben Miles, business development manager, Marquis. “The solution will now enable them to prioritise by size, project, location, age, duplicated or orphaned files and then archive files to second tier storage, or delete unused media at the touch of a button, take snapshots of versions of projects, or move from one location to another, while still maintaining a usable and easily accessible format for future use.
“Project Parking will also allow Česká televize’s staff to transfer entire projects from multiple locations to tiers of storage or different destinations if required,” continues Miles. “Users can also create multiple archive destinations, for example another shared storage area or even a locally attached USB drive. A detailed report is produced upon completion of an archive providing certain knowledge that the project will be in exactly the same state when restored.. As a result, Project Parking will now give Česká televize the tools to optimise the efficient use of their edit storage.”
Project Parking works as it understands the relationships between Avid projects, folders and bins and all its media. It does this by examining all project files and compiles a list of complete media references. Project Parking then looks at all the media and matches the project references to that media allowing the application to complete some very useful tasks including the analysis of workspaces and the archive and transfer of projects. This in-turn allows edit storage to be ‘freed-up’ and back-up and recovery becomes a straight forward task.
