Terabytes of storage saved on Tour de France by using Marquis Broadcast Worx4 X
Marquis Broadcasts Worx4 X media management tool saved over 97% storage space and accelerated production delivery for Tour de France Apple FCP X editor, Peter Wiggins.
Since its launch earlier this year, the new Worx4 X media managing application from Marquis Broadcast has proved indispensable with editors, producers and educators, helping them consolidate and manage their media. The software was recently used on the Tour de France production for ITV4. It drastically reduced the size of their completed Apple FCP X projects by analysing the media that had been used, then creating a folder of trimmed media. Importantly, this approach also meant no loss in quality.
Peter Wiggins, senior editor on the Tour de France programmes for ITV4, used Worx4 X to reduce the size of a single hour-long show from 3161GB to just 86.6GB, which was a saving of over 97% or 3TB of storage. Ive just finished a long summer of daily shows, which gave me a good opportunity to thoroughly test out Worx4 X, he said. I had used the app before on corporate videos but this extended run on the Tour de France meant I was using it every day, boiling away the unused media in hour-long shows. It simply isnt economically viable to save every second of unused media in the show, so we used Worx4 X to media-manage each programme.
The Tour de France programmes were compiled from studio recordings, long live feeds and archive clips, meaning their SAN was quickly filling with media a large percentage of which doesnt make the transmitted shows. If wed used the Library media consolidation tool in Final Cut Pro X, even though we would end up with all the media in a show, we would also end up with the entire media of each clip, Peter explained. So, for an intro that showed three seconds of the past 10 winners of the race, consolidation would take the whole clips of each winner. And since we were recording live feeds in two-hour chunks, this would add up to 20 hours of footage or 1.28TB. After running through Worx4 X, that intro gets boiled down to 10 clips, each seven seconds long, including two-second handles, which gives you just 70 seconds of media in total or about 1.1GB at ProRes 422. Thats a pretty big saving.
Worx4 X takes the media used in an FCP X project and copies it to a new location whilst trimming with handles, saving a large amount of space once the required content has been identified. For each hour-long Tour de France programme, the application took about 5-10 minutes to process. The application creates a single folder as an editable archive, containing a new XML of the project that references the newly-created media in this folder.
James Venner, producer of the Tour de France programmes for Vsquared TV, commented, Worx4 X is a great product that really solved a pressing problem for us. The lack of a proper media consolidation tool was an issue that nearly prevented us from switching to FCP X for our broadcast work it was only temporarily solved by buying more and more archive drives. We were nearing breaking point with an ever-increasing pile of drives, all of which needed to be moved around between productions. Worx4 X has now enabled us to consolidate the drives that we're using down to something far more manageable and has more than paid for itself on day one!

Grupo Imagen Prepares for Major National Network Expansion with EditShare Posted: 18/01/2018

EditShare, a technology leader in intelligent shared storage and media management solutions, announced that Mexico-based media conglomerate Grupo Imagen is implementing EditShare XStream EFS 450 scale out production storage, XStream EFS 40NL parking storage, and Flow media asset management to support content automation and fast turn-around workflows. Grupo Imagen was recently awarded a nationwide broadcast television license that expands its current broadcast network to over 190 transmission sites with its multiplex signal across the Mexican national territory. The opportunity requires the broadcaster to build out a network of brick and mortar stations in some of the major cities across Mexico, and thus reinforce its Mexico City hub with an infrastructure that can support connected workflows. The installation of EditShare will aid in the production of the broadcasters telenovelas and news packages; providing a tiered storage environment for fast online production and parking storage with automation that moves media across post production systems and third-party storage platforms, optimizing collaboration and media sharing across workgroups.
