Marquis, Bycast announce technology integration partnership
January 14, 2009
Marquis Broadcast and Bycast have partnered to integrate Marquis’ Medway file exchange software with Bycast’s StorageGRID storage virtualization software. This integration enables post-production and broadcasting companies to achieve improvements in the speed and efficiency of digital workflows when transferring files between applications based on a range of hardware and software platforms. It also allows users to create highly efficient file-based workflows across multiple remote sites.
Medway handles media and metadata transfers by rewrapping and streaming the data, allowing it to flow freely between editing systems, asset management solutions and video servers. StorageGRID provides an enterprisewide view of media and metadata wherever it resides, while protecting against loss, media obsolescence and unauthorized access. This enables users to have uninterrupted access to all their media assets across multiple sites and heterogeneous storage environments within a single virtualized system that spans tier one through deep archive platforms from multiple vendors.
