1.B20 Harmonic Spectrum(TM) boasts benefits of solid-state technology With more content saved in more formats than ever before, easy access to media assets is an on-going challenge for facilities, explains Chris Steele, product manager, Marquis Broadcast. The combination of Project Parking and MatrixStore potentially offers an economical answer to archiving and storing file-based content as it can free-up expensive shared storage by creating portable projects which can be stored off-line. Parked projects also provide significant advantages for disaster recovery procedures, business continuity and inter-site workflows. 2.A58 Access to media assets is no object for Marquis M arquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software, has been working with Object Matrix, manufacturer of MatrixStore, a disk based nearline and archive storage solution, designed to protect both video content and metadata in video workflows, to create a new solution to allow easy archiving and access to media assets.
