​Marquis Broadcast Shows Fotonflite at SMPTE LA

Marquis Broadcast is showcasing its new Fotonflite point-to-point transfer system for Avid at the SMPTE fall exhibition. Fotonflite allows files to be moved between source Avid NEXIS/ISIS systems and a range of target storage types allowing remote servers to be configured as if they were local.

Fotonflite is claimed unique in its ability to directly connect and securely synchronise live Avid ISIS/NEXIS systems too, especially with live Avid work-in-progress. It is for securely connecting production centres over the internet for example, Pinewood, UK, and Hollywood. Fotonflite also benefits from Avid project pre-analytics, meaning that after the first transfer, only the subsequent project and workspace changes are transmitted, resulting in ultra-fast sync and transfer updates and the most efficient network utilisation.

The Marquis Broadcast exhibit also features the Interplay Metadata Export Tool (IMET), which enables customers to export Avid Interplay project and media metadata – useful when archiving projects from an Interplay system. This, says the firm, is useful to backup Interplay metadata, make it more widely available and to reduce the size of the Interplay database to improve performance. The utility works alongside the archiving process, exporting metadata so it’s fully-searchable via a web browser, displaying a list of projects that can be opened to see the metadata information for all assets (master clips, sub clips, etc.), along with headframes and a downloadable copy of the AAF file for sequences. It is possible to search across projects, assets or any system or user fields.

A new dashboard plus secure server side AWS S3 encryption is released for Project Parking for Avid storage management analytics and project portability. The dashboard provides usage tracking for remote Marquis Workspace Tools and Project Parking systems, ideal for multi-site companies wanting to remotely monitor and manage NEXIS and ISIS data usage.

Other product developments include a new search panel for Edit Bridge, which enables custom searches of Interplay files, allowing non-Avid editors to create complex Interplay queries for use within Adobe and Apple NLEs.
