GB Labs and Marquis announce technical partnership


24th July, 2015 | GB LABS Stand: 7J15B Marquis Broadcast, experts in content workflows and media integration software, specialise in moving media, has today announced it has teamed up with GB Labs' storage to show the integration of its collaborative Avid editing tools with both Marquis’ Workspace Parking, the ‘set & forget’ disaster recovery solution for Avid workspaces plus Project Parking, Marquis’ popular archive and retrieve solution.

“We have been working closely with GB Labs for a number of years,” confirms Tom Hassell, Marketing Communications Manager. “Our collaboration and the integration of our solutions now means Avid facilities can have total control over their media files and video projects. The result of the integration is a seamless shared editing and archiving workflow that delivers considerable cost-savings and greatly enhanced productivity.”


“GB Labs’ Avid editing tools for our SPACE units in combination with Project Parking enables supervisors to have a complete oversight of every project and each associated file, which is essential for storage management data security, project restoration and disaster recovery,” explains GB Labs Spokesperson, Ben Pearce. “For Avid workgroups this means that projects can be archived and restored very quickly, and primary storage arrays can be managed far more efficiently. GB Labs’ fast networked storage is optimised for Avid sharing; its primary, nearline and tape-based systems sit on the same network for instant user access and very high-speed data transfer."

“Thanks to the Marquis software, GB Labs’ Avid customers can immediately locate every project wherever it is stored on the network, recognise every duplicate file, manage redundant clips and easily transfer completed jobs to nearline or offline storage, ready to be restored as needed.

“With the new integration of Workspace Parking, it is also easy to store the back-up entire workspaces,” continues Ben. “Individual projects or bins of older versions of projects can then be easily identified and restored to an ISIS or laptop immediately, providing a complete and rapid business continuity solution. We are looking forward to demonstrating these innovative solutions at IBC 2015.”
