Interplay Orphan Crosschecking (IOC) has been added to the latest version of Marquis Broadcast’s Project Parking shared storage management software.
The new feature, part of version 3.8, provides verification of orphan material when working with Avid Interplay.
Marquis business development manager, Ben Miles, said: “Project Parking enables editors to analyse and manage all the projects and media on their edit storage and has been supplied to broadcasters and post houses all over the world. The introduction of IOC opens Project Parking up to more customers who rely on Interplay MAM operating in tandem with ISIS workspaces.”
Miles added that IOC will help to increase “user confidence” when determining orphaned media within the Interplay domain.
Project Parking analyses Avid projects and media in order to determine which elements are using up most space, allowing editors to then transfer, archive or delete them. As well as finding large projects, Project Parking also identifies unused or duplicate media that can be deleted or archived.
Orphan checking or cross-checking can be completed against a pre-existing orphan list and pre-existing Storage Analysis digest database.
The Interplay cross-check will use any pre-existing orphan list and correlate against the Interplay Web Services. If the orphaned material is found to be used within the Interplay environment then this item is removed from the original orphaned media list.
