Facilis and Marquis Broadcast Extended TerraBlock Compatibility

Shared storage provider Facilis and Avid MAM specialist Marquis Broadcast have announced further integration qualifying Project Parking projects with TerraBlock shared storage. Specifically, Project Parking can use TerraBlock storage within Avid-centric workflows, processing projects and media. If required, Project Parking can also use the TerraBlock system as the destination storage device within an Avid workflow.

With the ever increasing file-based workflow demands there is a growing need for organizations to optimize shared storage resources. Recent research by Marquis has shown that broadcasters are typically wasting up to 20 percent of their shared storage capacities due to duplicate files or orphaned media. The functionality offered by Marquis and Facilis enables customers to take advantage of Project Parking’s media and metadata tracking features for enhanced project management in Avid environments.

“Our customers live in a world where multi-vendor architectures are a fact of life and third party interoperability is a requirement,” commented James McKenna, VP Marketing, Facilis Technology. “Project Parking provides an elegant project management workflow for post production facilities and broadcasters. With these products working together, our customers with Avid products can now opt for an integrated toolset that will streamline project management and efficiently organize storage capacity.”

“Storage management and content retrieval is a key challenge for broadcast facilities,” explains Simon Fearn, Product Manager, Marquis Broadcast. “The combination of Facilis’ TerraBlock content storage management solution and Marquis’ Project Parking gives editors greater control over their digital assets.”
