Marquis Broadcast to showcase Fotonflite at NAB NY and SMPTE Tech Conference 2018


Marquis Broadcast’s will be at the NAB Show New York from 17 to 18 October at booth N853, and at the 2018 SMPTE Tech Conference from 22 to 25 October at booth 438. The company will be showcasing its new Fotonflite secure transfer system, which is a high-performance, secure ‘on-the-fly’, point-to-point transfer system for Avid Media Composer projects and media workspaces. Fotonflite allows files to be moved between source Avid NEXIS/ISIS systems and a range of target storage types, including Avid, generic and proprietary storage, allowing remote servers to be configured as if they were local.

Fotonflite is unique in its ability to directly connect and securely synchronise live Avid ISIS/NEXIS systems too, especially with live Avid work-in-progress. It is ideal for securely connecting production centres over the internet for example, Pinewood, UK, and Hollywood, USA. Fotonflite also benefits from advanced Avid project pre-analytics, meaning that after the first transfer, only the subsequent project and workspace changes are transmitted, resulting in ultra-fast sync and transfer updates and the most efficient network utilisation.

The Marquis Broadcast exhibit will also feature the Interplay Metadata Export Tool (IMET), which enables customers to export Avid Interplay project and media metadata – essential when archiving projects from an Interplay system. This is useful to backup Interplay metadata, make it more widely available and to reduce the size of the Interplay database to improve performance. The utility works alongside the archiving process, exporting metadata so it’s fully-searchable via a web browser, displaying a list of projects that can be opened to see the metadata information for all assets (master clips, sub clips, etc.), along with headframes and a downloadable copy of the AAF file for sequences. It is possible to search across projects, assets or any system or user fields.

Marquis will also showcase a new dashboard plus secure server side AWS S3 encryption for Project Parking – the industry gold-standard for Avid storage management analytics and project portability. The dashboard provides usage tracking for remote Marquis Workspace Tools and Project Parking systems, ideal for multi-site companies wanting to remotely monitor and manage NEXIS and ISIS data usage.

Other product developments include a new search panel for Edit Bridge, which enables custom searches of Interplay files, allowing non-Avid editors to easily create complex Interplay queries for use within Adobe Premiere Pro CC, Adobe After Effects CC and Apple Final Cut Pro X. Finally, the latest version of Medway media-centric middleware now supports frame rate conversion and HDR 4K support, converting 4K HDR content to HD SDR content, along with automatic motion compensated deinterlacing to progressive, delivering great flexibility and quality for automated media workflows.
