Marquis Broadcast, developer of advanced workflow productivity tools for the broadcast and media industry, has announced it is to show its latest software productivity tools at BVE 2017 partnering with Digital Garage on booth K52. Previewed for the first time and due to be launched officially at NAB 2017, will be Worx4 X the brand-new editing app which massively reduces Apple FCP X project size, without quality loss or using compression.
Part of the new Worx4 suite of helper apps for editors created by Marquis, Worx4 X takes the media used in an Apple FCP X project and copies to a new location while trimming with handles, confirms Paul Glasgow, sales & marketing director Marquis Broadcast. In some scenarios a project could be reduced in size by as much as 90%. This makes sharing, delivering and archiving fully editable FCP X projects faster, easier, and more reliable.
First previewed at IBC 2016, we will also show Worx4 Pro, which is a media discovery tool for Adobe Premiere Pro which identifies where all the media in a project is stored, this ensures editors never deliver a project with missing media, continues Glasgow. Marquis has 18 years experience of working with Avid, Apple and Adobe environments. At BVE we are meeting users to introduce the exciting benefits of our new apps, in addition to linking-up with potential beta testers too.
For users of Adobe Premiere Pro, After Effects and Apple FCP X with Avid ISIS NEXIS and Interplay, our award winning Edit Bridge is a great solution, confirms Glasgow. Edit Bridge enables Avid Interplay content to be found and used in multiple editing applications resulting in super slick integrations and allowing non-Avid editors to work seamlessly within an Avid Interplay environment.
For users of Avid shared storage, Marquis will also be on-hand to show Project and Workspace Parking, the Companys global No.1 suite of tools for ISIS NEXIS storage analysis, optimisation, productivity, archive and business continuity. Certified by Avid, the Parking suite is used by the biggest broadcasters and post houses in the world: Project Parking is the complete Avid storage management solution which archives, moves and restores Avid projects and analyses and manages media to optimise edit storage utilisation. Workspace parking is Marquis set & forget business continuity solution for Avid workspaces, designed to get high value productions back up and running in minutes. Now Parking protection scales down to a mini 16TB usable NEXIS - so small scale productions can now enjoy big scale productivity at a mini price.
All our solutions are built upon deep knowledge of systems, media and metadata and we will also present Medway at the show, continues Glasgow. We maintain a huge interoperability library and the Medway application uses this library to glue together ultra-modern and legacy workflows. Whether a complex DPP workflow between DAM, post-production and transmission systems or integrating ground to cloud workflows, we have a mountain of experience connecting incompatible systems and making workflows super-efficient and reliable.
Glasgow concludes: In combination with our partner Digital Garage, we look forward to meeting and talking with editors, post houses and broadcasters at BVE to understand their integration issues more deeply and work together to help solve their individual workflow challenges.
