(August 27, 2015) Marquis Broadcast,
experts in content workflows and media integration software, specialise in moving media. Marquis has announced that TV3, Ireland’s leading free-to-air commercial television network, is using Marquis’ complete Avid storage management solution, Project Parking, to assist in the management of media on its Avid Interplay and ISIS storage.
Project Parking identifies how space is used, removes unused and duplicate media, archives projects and moves projects with media to other storage or systems. Projects can also be merged from other systems without media duplication. The solution also monitors how media storage is used, regularly reporting on usage, showing usage over time, plus archiving projects and executing analysis in the background.
post production supervisor, TV3 Group explains: “We chose Marquis because Project Parking provided the best fit with our Interplay set up and it was developed especially for Avid environments. Previously it was necessary to move media through Interplay and access the database manually. Project Parking now saves us time as the process is automated. It means we can assign our valuable staff resources to other important tasks.
“The reporting function is particularly useful,” continues Brennan. “The statistics we get back from the system enables us to analyse space used on workstations through a real-time graphical representation. This analysis enables de-duplicating of material and this analysis can be set as a task to run in the background along with project archives which frees up not only time, but space too.”
Marquis will demonstrate its range of Parking products at IBC 2015 on booth 2.A58. For further information see: www.marquisbroadcast.com

Through its media integration software and array of edit storage management tools Marquis enables broadcasters and other digital media producers to achieve maximum efficiencies from their workflow processes. Whether moving media, metadata, sequences or projects, Marquis can offer multi-vendor solutions that are fast and effective, allowing you to concentrate on telling the story.

Launched in 1998, TV3 is the largest commercial channel in Ireland with an 8% market share for Adults 15+. The channel reaches over 2.5 million individuals each week and over 3.4 million individuals each month. TV3 has a bigger market share for Adults 15+ than BBC1, Channel 4, Sky 1 & E4 combined.
TV3 Group continues to differentiate itself through an emphasis on Irish and home produced programming, and in 2015 more than 50% of its current schedule will be produced in Ireland. The development of the brand new Sony HD Studio has allowed for the production of bigger formats and even better content for distribution – giving scope for greater impact in the international market.
TV3 employs over 250 people fulltime and a further 130 people on its new soap drama ‘Red Rock’ which was launched in January 2015.
Today, TV3 Group has firmly established itself as the leader in TV entertainment in Ireland. While TV3 strikes the perfect balance between light hearted fun, home-grown daytime viewing and authentic original programming, its sister channel 3e, targets a slightly younger audience. The station’s Adults 15-34 share is bigger than BBC1, Comedy Central, E4 and Sky1.
