Omneon MediaGrid supports seamless editing

Omneon (SU7217) announced last month the enhanced integration of its MediaGrid active storage system with Marquis Broadcast’s Medway media highway software. The combination now enables seamless migration of edit timelines between Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid editors.

The Omneon MediaGrid active storage system delivers centralized content storage that is scalable in capacity, bandwidth, and media processing power and supports edit-in-place for both Apple Final Cut Pro and Avid Media Composer and Newscutter editors. Medway from Marquis is a sophisticated media transfer and format conversion tool that creates a unified working environment for broadcast ingest and transmission servers and post-production editing systems. The close integration of the MediaGrid system and Medway also enables the off-loading of export and conform processes for both Final Cut Pro and Avid editing environments and gives users simple drag-and-drop or single-click control over the migration of sequences from Apple to Avid edit systems.
