Marquis Helps Post-Production Facilities Take Control Of Proxy Workflows
Medway media integration management can help crunch the numbers to offer massive post-production file savings by efficiently handling and developing a powerful proxy workflow solution… By Chris Steele Product Manager, Marquis Broadcast www.marquisbroadcast.com

ne of the promised benefits of file-based workflows was that there would be less footage, however, this has turned out not to be the case. It is not uncommon for crews to come back with 500GB of media after less than a week of shooting and these days, you can carry ten hours of media in your back pocket. For the post house, this raises all sorts of practical problems relating to workflow. Importing all the HD original media from a shoot will use up a lot of edit storage space; space that might not be available. Only the selects are needed, but if the selections have not been made, the media will have to be imported in order to make them. One way to deal with large file sizes is to create a parallel low resolution or ‘proxy’ workflow, which offers a faster way of working and at the same time

freeing up large amounts of high value edit storage. The solution is to import all the media but as H.264 proxies. XDCAM 1080p could be up to 50 Mbit/s, whereas the H.264 proxy format runs at a constant rate of 800 kbit/s, or around 1.5% of the size of the original media. In terms of numbers, for a 90-minute programme, there may be 30 hours of rushes. In XDCAM 50 this could take up 650GB of storage. H.264 proxies of this would use up just 9.75GB. When the editor has made the shot selections and initial edit and is ready to switch back to full HD, just loading the XDCAM 50 used in the program would be another 32.5GB, perhaps a little more if they include handles. So, the total edit storage requirement for media in the proxy workflow is 42GB compared with 650GB for the full HD edit, a

saving of over 600GB or 93%. This kind of saving can be achieved with Marquis’ media integration product: Medway. Medway generates Avid standard H.264 proxies at 800kb/s in the background and the proxies are delivered directly into Avid for immediate editing. The original rushes can then be archived in nearline storage. Once the edit is nearing completion, the sequence is passed to Medway which fetches the original

media, trims it with handles, before delivering back to the Avid. Then the Avid can relink to the HD resolution and maintain all details of sequence effects. This is an automatic process triggered by the editor dragging and dropping the sequence onto the Medway “drain”. In this way, the proxy workflow offers a simple way to save significant amounts of storage on an HD project.

A Breath Of Fresh Air
Silentair impresses following Olympic success…

S

ilentair, the designer and manufacturer of revolutionary air conditioning (AC) solutions, has continued to wow the broadcast industry with its ground-breaking Serenity and Nomad ranges. This follows its provision of AC solutions at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Heating and cooling broadcast studios and post-production units is

a challenging business. Noise levels, energy usage, installation time and space required are all factors that need considering and traditional systems often fail to address some, or all of these issues. Similarly one of the major challenges facing broadcasters using temporary structures is the ability to keep studios cool and quiet whilst

Silentair’s mobile AC solution – the Nomad range

utilising a host of lights. Maintaining a comfortable and professional environment is often difficult with AC units often having to be turned off during noise sensitive periods. Silentair has rewritten the rules of AC with its noise free, flexible solutions which make heating or cooling, silently, possible almost anywhere. The Nomad range is Silentair’s mobile AC solution, unlike any other AC system silent air conditioning can now be moved to any hot spot, delivering up to 8kW of cooling or heating and by placing the outside noise levels are minimised. Robust in design, the units are stylish, easy to transport and exceptionally quiet (NR18 @ 1.5 metres). In addition the intelligent design of the product means that draughts are a thing of the past. Cooled air is delivered to the hot spot at a height of three metres so it is distributed above head height. This eliminates any blasts of cool air yet simultaneously reduces the air temperature perfectly. With up to 20 metres of flexible hosing between the indoor and

outdoor the Nomad products are flexible and easy to use and can be moved into position easily. In addition no technical skill is required to assemble or operate the units which are simple to function and require a standard 13 amp power source which allows more than one system to be used at the same time. The ground-breaking, permanent Serenity range also boasts a unique design which operates at NR15. The system is being fitted to more and more studios and removes the need for silencers or oversized ducting meaning that this silent system can actually be located inside the studio, preferably in the ceiling void with only a 350mm height requirement. Compact, quick to install, cost effective and beautifully silent; with Serenity your new studio system could be up and running very quickly, causing minimum downtime and disruption. Silentair products and systems are assembled in Leeds and customers are invited to come and see (but not hear) the innovative designs and to discuss how Silentair AC can really work for you.
