Field editor with essential features

The Enterprise sQ field editor

SAM’s field editor, Marco, enables journalists and editors to use SAM’s familiar editing toolset out of the office while on assignment. Based on the Enterprise sQ family of editors, Marco provides a full set of editing features which professionals know and trust.

Prepare for delivery to Enterprise sQ

Compatible with standard PC hardware, Marco is an ideal choice where network options are limited. Instant access to soft mounted media and a wide array of supported camera formats enables content producers to edit in the field and be ready to deliver to Enterprise sQ on return to base.
