XenData, Marquis In Avid Media Composer Archive
XenData, a provider of digital video archive solutions to the media and entertainment industry, and Marquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software, today announced a collaborative solution to easily archive all media associated with Avid Media Composer editing projects to LTO-5 cartridges.
The combined solution creates an LTO-5 archive server for use on a network with multiple Avid Media Composer video edit stations. It allows users to archive not only sequence edits, effects and project settings, but the original rushes.
The LTO-5 archive server has an attached robotic LTO tape library and runs both XenData6 Server software and Marquis Parking 2.6 software on the same Windows Server 2008 R2 platform. The system scales from 33 TB near-line LTO capacity to over a Petabyte of near-line storage.
Other benefits of the joint solution based on XenData6 Server software and Marquis Parking 2.6 include:
Frees up expensive online edit storage by transferring sequences and projects to lower cost, near-line LTO cartridges.
Retains re-editable archives on LTO cartridges that provide a 30-year data storage lifetime.
Automatically creates a duplicate copy of LTO cartridges for retention offsite and disaster recovery purposes.
At IBC 2011, XenData will be demonstrating its XenData6 Server software for the first time in Hall 7, Stand H47 and Marquis Broadcast will be exhibiting Marquis Parking 2.6 at Stand A58 in Hall 2.
