Marquis Announces Medway Edit Support for 4K at IBC 2016

Marquis Broadcast will demonstrate the 4K capability of its workflow interoperability solution, Medway, for this first time at IBC 2016. At the show Marquis plans to focus on Medway’s support for resolutions beyond HD.

Medway is a highly flexible media and metadata workflow automation solution that integrates more than 30 best-of-breed broadcast systems.

Marquis' Medway generates a HD mezzanine format of the required content for editing, then when the editor is ready to switch to 4K, Medway trims the 4K files to only the used frames with handles and delivers to the edit storage. It is a practical and real solution which saves space and therefore reduces the need to invest in additional edit storage.

Medway provides transfer and format conversion workflows for video, audio, data and metadata, allowing for the exchange of media and metadata between broadcast systems in a fast, transparent and cost effective way. This enables users to operate complete file based workflows in mixed format environments. Additionally, with the support of 4K, users are offered further flexibility enabling them to focus on the process of media production and creativity without concern for ‘technical trickery’.
