Marquis Broadcast is unveiling major new upgrades to Medway, its media transfer and format conversion software, at IBC 2011. The upgrades feature a range of metadata integration enhancements that bring further efficiencies to file-based broadcast and post-production workflows.
Dalet is showcasing Medway’s extended metadata integration, including sequence genealogy, and demonstrating how it enables users to create closely coupled placeholder workflows with MAM-generated naming and category allocations matched to content.
Two new major advancements within Medway due for release later this year are being presented at IBC 2011. The first is a new web services interface, based on the AMWA/EBU FIMS development that will enable MAM systems to drive Medway’s feature-set. The second new development will provide closed caption preservation throughout editing workflows, and metadata support for the frame accurate requirements of 3-D/proxy production.
