Project Parking at the Seaside

German creative agency Seaside Productions is using Marquis Broadcast’s Project Parking to help manage its edit storage more effectively. The Munich based agency purchased Project Parking through reseller Videocation and the solution will be used on on-air promos for the ProSiebenSat.1 TV channels.

“We now use Project Parking for monthly sweeping of orphaned files and exporting finished projects to our archive server,” explained Jörg Goeßler, general manager, seaside productions in a release. “This keeps our central storage neat and clean and frees up storage space.

“In this way, Project Parking helps us to manage our workflow after edit projects are finished and the final sequence is archived. It sweeps only those files that were used by the specific project leaving files needed by other projects in place. It means we are able to avoid the need to invest in further storage.”

For Marquis, business development manager Ben Miles added: “By analysing all of your Avid projects and media you can cross check these against Interplay and acknowledge which projects are using up the most space, how old the projects are, what workspaces the media is residing in and identify orphan or duplicate media. Project Parking then gives you the tools to either transfer, archive or delete this material as needed.”
