Marquis Broadcast is enhancing its Medway media exchange solution by adding support for KONAN Digital's DigitalArc series of componentized media asset management (MAM) solution.
KONAN Digital and Marquis Broadcast will showcase this functionality in demonstrations at NAB2006.
Marquis and KONAN have integrated and tested these new capabilities in several multivendor broadcast and production environments, using Medway to transfer media files between the DigitalArc MAM solutions and other manufacturers’ broadcasting systems. The tests were conducted using a range of files formats and protocol standards.
Medway manages both media files and their associated metadata in a format-independent manner, enabling media to be exchanged and utilized by components across the entire range of broadcast equipment.
The KONAN DigitalArc components allow broadcasters to either replace the entire infrastructure all at once with a fully file-based digital MAM-centric environment or to integrate one or more stand-alone DigitalArc components to improve specific workflow processes used to manage the complete life cycle of assets.
