Marquis Broadcast has introduced Project Parking for Spectra Logic’s BlackPearl Deep Storage Appliance.
The integrated solution now allows permanent deep archive or transfer of Avid projects. It enables whole projects, sequences, all the media files or just the bins that are important to be parked or taken offline. Projects can be brought back or deep archived directly into Spectra T-Series libraries.
“Our edit shared storage management software, Project Parking, provides tools to analyse, manage and optimise Avid online shared storage with extensive and secure archive/transfer of Avid Projects and associated media to BlackPearl,” explained Simon Fearn, product manager, Marquis Broadcast. “With the support of BlackPearl, Avid Projects and media are efficiently managed between Avid shared storage and BlackPearl deep archive. The combined solution provides flexibility when optimising Avid media and projects ensuring assets are secure and instantly accessible via BlackPearl.
“In this way daily, weekly shared storage administration processes are speeded-up, enabling personnel to focus on critical or revenue making tasks,” confirmed Fearn. “It also frees-up valuable edit storage space, providing more head-room to accommodate new projects.”
