The Avid storage management application will be installed on an LTO server to act as the gatekeeper between an Avid ISIS network and a tape archive. Greg Kessler, manager, operations and technical support, TV One said: “Marquis is the only company around that makes a product as effective as Project Parking for archiving and restoring to and from an Avid storage environment in a way that gives you everything you need without adding unnecessary data or taking away shared assets from other projects.” ISIS workspaces will be mounted to the LTO server so that Project Parking can have direct access to both the LTO server storage and the ISIS storage.

The deal was prompted by client demand. “We have looked at cloud-based solutions before, but they have been notoriously expensive and complicated to integrate into our infrastructure,” said Paul Ingvarsson, co- founder of StormHD. “Forscene has been smoother than I could ever imagine to slot into our existing workfl ows Increasingly we’re being asked to quote on projects that require us to have Forscene in order to be considered.
