Marquis and Bycast Announce New Multi-Site Workflow Solution

Mar 20, 2009

Marquis Broadcast, a provider of broadcast workflow studies and media integration tools, and Bycast Inc., a provider of advanced storage virtualization software for large-scale archives, will show the results of their recently announced joint technology integration partnership at NAB 2009. The companies will demonstrate Bycast’s integration of Marquis’ Medway media transfer and format conversion software with its StorageGRID storage virtualization software. This integration helps users when transferring media between a variety of post-production and broadcast applications. It also allows users to create workflows across multiple remote sites. Medway will capture digital content from cameras in all popular formats including P2, XDCAM and DVCPRO HD. From this content, Medway will create multiple editable formats for a range of editing system storing them in the StorageGR ID repository. StorageGRID will make the content visible to edit systems at a second site. Upon completion of the edit, distribution masters stored in StorageGRID are transcoded into multiple distribution formats and distributed to a third site.
