NEWS MANAGE & MONITOR Archive Marquis Broadcast’s Project Parking is being used by Warner Bros. Television Production UK (WBTVP UK), it has been revealed. The internal post house, which works with a number of indie production companies, is using the archive and retrieve software to manage the Avid projects on its 250 TB EditShare and 96 TB Isis storage. “Projects span multiple workspaces and having a clear, top down view of those spaces is essential for media management as well as archiving Avid projects internally or between storage or sharing Avid projects externally,” explained technical manager Simon Brett. “Project Parking is also being used to allow projects started on EditShare, to be moved over to Avid Isis storage with the goal of lowering the cost of nearline storage.” The company’s main challenge is archiving productions that have nearly finished but have been put on hold or have had their TX/completion dates pushed back. marquisbroadcast.com Systems integration T&M ATG Danmon UK will promote its range of systems planning, design, installation, configuration, commissioning and post- installation support capabilities at BVE (Stand C14).

Our customers rely on us to make the right technological choices for them in order to gain maximum benefit from their investment.” Leader Electronics is introducing new options for its LV 5490 4k/UHD/HS/SD multiscreen signal monitor that provide added support for 12G-SDI, high dynamic range and video over IP. The new options will be promoted at BVE. European market development manager Kevin Salvidge said: “In its standard form, it offers 4k, UHD, HD, SD and sub-SD format features in a compact portable unit which can be operated on mains or battery power. The three new options will be particularly appreciated by broadcasters and production companies planning to adopt video over IP infrastructures but more immediately needing to implement UHDTV baseband workflows. Each option in this suite of upgrades is available at the initial time of purchase or can be added later.” danmon.com 26 | KITPLUS - THE TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 110 FEBRUARY 2016 leaderamerica.com
