NEWS MANIPULATE & EDIT Shared storage Post Production Coach House Studios, based at London’s Twickenham Studios, has purchased a turnkey Pablo Rio 4KO high quality colour and finishing system for its 4K post production work on features, long-form TV dramas and documentaries. Coach House Studios offers HD to 4K picture post editing, online, VFX and grading services in house, as well as location editing, DIT vehicles and carts. The Pablo Rio system was sold via UK reseller partner XTFX. Coach House Studios chief executive John Walbeoffe said, “Pablo Rio ticked all the boxes when looking for an efficient 4K finishing system that had an integrated editing, color and finishing toolset. We have already completed two projects on the Pablo Rio and have been thoroughly impressed with its speed, efficiency and incredible power.” EditShare has teamed up with Object Matrix to put together an integrated workflow that will see Flow and Shared Storage from Editshare capture and manage assets while MatrixStore is used for nearline/preservation of content. The new technology partnership is said to provide facilities with a robust infrastructure for large-scale, collaborative media workflows. The combined offering is made up of EditShare’s asset management Flow, its XStream, Energy and Field shared storage options and Object Matrix’s nearline and preservation system. “EditShare’s Flow MAM platform is ideal for expanding the capabilities of third-party storage and archive systems like Object Matrix,” said EditShare managing director Tara Montford. “Flow adds a control layer, connecting systems across the production and post-production chain. It allows users to streamline the way they capture and manage content with smart technology to automate redundant tasks. The efficiency gains are tremendous and have a positive impact on the quality of projects and the productivity.” Workflows Marquis Broadcast will launch version 4 of its archive and retrieve technology Project Parking at NAB (Booth SL7720). The latest incarnation adds further monitoring and reporting capabilities. Chris Steele, managing director, Marquis Broadcast, said: “Our original solution identified how space was used, removed unused and duplicate media, archived projects and moved projects with media to other storage or systems.  The enhanced Project Parking Version 4 has become a complete Avid storage management solution, monitoring how media storage is used, regularly reporting on usage, showing usage over time, plus archiving projects and executing analysis in the background. It will give facilities total control to manage their edit storage.” Network usage is now optimised by dynamically testing the network before archiving, he added. Also at NAB, Marquis will launch new storage analysis tools including: Solo Parking for standalone Avid edit workstations; Unify Parking for copying projects onto shared central storage; Project Parking Server, which runs in the background to execute Project Parking jobs; and Workspace Parking, Marquis’ new set-and-forget disaster recovery solution for Avid. 18 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 99 MARCH 2015
