MUNICH, GERMANY — Seaside Productions GmbH (www.seaside-productions.de) is a creative agency that provides on-air promotion, design and post production services. The studio recently purchased Marquis Broadcast’s Project Parking through reseller Videocation, which it is using for monthly sweeping of orphaned files and for exporting finished projects to its archive server.
“This keeps our central storage neat and clean, and frees up storage space,” notes Jörg Goebler, general manager of Seaside Productions. “In this way, Project Parking helps us to manage our workflow after edit projects are finished and the final sequence is archived. Project Parking sweeps only those files that were used by the specific project, leaving files needed by other projects in place. It means we are able to avoid the need to invest in further storage.”
“With Project Parking, users can create project archives based upon bin selection, move projects between tiers of storage or transfer to different locations easily,” notes Ben Miles, business development manager for Marquis Broadcast. “After archiving and transferring media offline, selected projects or individual bins can be restored and merged with the original project or into new projects, enabling the effortless creation of highlights, revisited and revision of programs.”
