Avid is the industry benchmark in large-scale video production. But once all your data and content has been produced, where do you put it? And how can you manage archives that seem to be ever-expanding? Marquis Broadcast's Parking software is a line of applications designed to address those needs, a range of products that simply and automate the management, backup and archive of Avid's stored content. Many broadcast and media enterprises use Parking for active storage housekeeping, trusting it to catch orphaned files, export finished projects to the archive server and keep file systems neat and efficient.
Project Parking And Server
Apart from the free version, which performs basic functions of storage analysis and Interplay integration, Parking is available in six core forms, designed to complement media capacity sizes and needs. Project Parking is a strong all- rounder app for managing Avid projects and Avid ISIS, with a simple toolset to analyse and manage media so you are making best use of your storage space. Use Parking to archive projects, transfer them to laptops or other devices, remove redundant files, optimise shared storage space and get rid of data clutter.
Project Parking provides an Avid project/workspace aware toolset and helps you judge when to move data blocks onto other storage venues to free and speed up stored media to save production workflow time and money. The Parking Server empowers you to schedule Project Parking archive tasks to run regularly and in the background of existing applications with minimal input from users. Parking Server offers solutions for archive integration, archive projects, consolidate projects, finding duplicated and orphan media and take projects offsite.
Solo Parking is Project Parking's little cousin, giving you similar benefits of storage analysis and transfer and aiming for optimum space and convenience. The Avid project/workspace toolset helps boost your day-to-day system speeds by archive, transferring and restoring Avid projects, bins and sequences, giving you tools to analyse, manage and optimize local storage solutions.
