Marquis’ Project Parking (pictured) offers a fast and cost-effective archive and restore process by creating a complete copy of any Avid project and media onto any storage device, Cache-A’s tools have been qualified with Project Parking to allow easy archiving of digital source media. “Project Parking finds media and Cache-A’s products transfer and archive content to secure, portable, exchangeable LTO tape cartridges,” explained Chris Steele, product manager, Marquis Broadcast. “As well as freeing-up expensive shared storage by taking media offline, the portable nature of parked projects makes them ideal for disaster recovery procedures, business continuity and inter-site workflows. “The combination of Marquis’ Project Parking and Cache-A’s archive appliances now provide the most integrated networked archiving solution in post,” confirmed Steele. “The complete solution solves a critical need in the media and entertainment industry by providing an economical answer to archiving and storing file-based content in a portable format. Because Cache-A’s tools allow content to be retrieved regardless of the application or software environment that recorded it, it also ensures the media will be accessible even 30 years from now, future-proofing the digital content creation process.” “We are very pleased to work with Marquis Broadcast to provide its customers an easy, yet robust archive component to their total solution,” said Mark Ostlund, vice president of sales and marketing for Cache-A.
