Marquis is adding cloud support for its Project Parking Avid storage management system. The application, for Avid ISIS and Nexis, provides project analytics, visualisation, management and archiving, with cloud support delivering a multi-site Avid workflow for film production and broadcast.
Project Parking is compatible with cloud storage providers including Amazon and Microsoft, and is Avid-certified.
It could be used to identify how space is used, remove unused and duplicate media, archive projects and move projects with media to other storage or systems. Projects can also be merged from other systems without media duplication. The system monitors how media storage is used, reporting on usage, showing usage over time, plus archiving projects and executing analysis in the background.
Chris Steele, MD, Marquis Broadcast, said: “The addition of cloud support for Project Parking makes for a great collaboration story,” adding that it “makes it simple to move complete Avid projects, together with all the bins, sequences and media files, to any other location worldwide.”
