Medway-Reach Engine integration optimizes technical and operational workflows
DENVER, CO (May 2, 2016) – Levels Beyond and Marquis Broadcast have announced a new integration that enables automated ingest and export of content for video editors using Avid Technology. Marquis’ workflow automation solution Medway and Levels Beyond’s open platform Reach Engine now work together to enable production houses to access all Avid capabilities from project start to finish.
“Medway delivers seamless, fast and cost-effective integration between leading broadcast content applications,” explained Chris Steele, managing director of Marquis Broadcast. “The new Medway integration with Reach Engine’s media hub system allows Avid users to capture and manage assets while sending and receiving media and metadata to and from the Avid production systems,” continued Steele. “As a result, the file-based integration of the Reach Engine media hub system with Avid edit environments will enable increased flexibility and speed of production. Organizations can now bring Reach Engine automation and cloud services into the Avid world.”
The new integration was first introduced at the NAB conference in Las Vegas and met with immediate interest from companies like JCPenny and Warner Brothers.
“The power of this partnership and tight integration is in the seamless exchange and transformation between Avid NLE and PAM and Reach Engine’s open content activity and management hub,” said Levels Beyond VP of Sales, Luc Comeau. “News organizations, studios and agencies can now bind the Avid ecosystem to our content factory, thanks to key Marquis know-how and solutions.”
Avid continues to be a top choice in digital non-linear media creation for companies working with video, film, audio, animation and games.
