Qvest Media Unveils Cloud-Based Workflow Solutions At IBC
At IBC 2019 (Sept. 13-17, RAI Amsterdam), Qvest Media (Stand 3.B40) introduced its lineup of new cloud products as well as current media projects in consulting and systems integration at stand 3.B40 at IBC in Amsterdam.
Q.Live — Q.Live can be put into operation ultrafast and live productions can be streamed to any number of online and social media channels such as Youtube, Twitch, Facebook or Web TV. Q.Live is pre-configured with cloud applications from innovative software manufacturers like Make.TV, Singular Live, and Easy Live for signal routing, graphics, mixing, effects, and streaming.
Q.Create with Adobe or Avid — Worldwide distributed production teams call for collaborative applications. With integrated post-production solutions for ingest, editing, and project management, Q.Create is designed to do just that. Q.Create is available in two different versions that include either Adobe or Avid as the core collaborative cloud editing product. Avid users gain access to virtualized Media Composer and NEXIS storage solutions that make expensive high-end workstations obsolete. The Adobe version focuses on comprehensive project management and is aimed at freelancers, SMEs, or agencies so that they can work together efficiently and location-independently.
Q.Archive — With modern archiving and indexing solutions, more and more companies are rediscovering lost media assets that can be quickly targeted and efficiently monetized. Q.Archive scours through media material, assists with metadata enrichment and media assets are stored in low-cost and secure deep archives in the cloud.
Q.Safe — Q.Safe is a pre-packaged disaster recovery solution in the cloud for failure protection of a linear playout automation system. The disaster recovery automatically synchronizes with the live system in the background. Q.Safe can be operated in 24/7/365 parallel operation or, if required, temporarily with a spin-up time of a few minutes.
Q.Air — Q.Air is a cloud-based playout automation for occasional or event-based channels. It covers media tasks like planning, creation, editing, storage, media management, graphics, transcoding and playout. In addition to cloud-typical scalability, media companies benefit from lower initial costs, so that, for example, new business models can be tested on the market at low risk.
Makalu — Makalu is a self-sufficient cloud-based playout automation system. It allows for a complete end-to-end signal workflow — from ingest to distribution. Fast deployment within minutes and a consumption-based billing model make Makalu a highly scalable, flexible, and cost-effective solution.
Manaslu — The studio playout solution Manaslu is designed for vendor agnostic deployment in virtualized and cloud-based environments. Thanks to open standards, Manaslu can be integrated in any studio environment based on file-based workflows. Manaslu reduces time-to-market to a minimum and can be used in classic broadcast environments as well as in the fast-growing OTT sector.
Infinity — With Infinity, Qvest Media launches a cloud-based compliance recording system. Infinity’s modular and service-based architecture enables flexible recording of broadcast signals and webstreams. The product enables the creation of scheduled and permanent recordings that can be conveniently viewed and downloaded in a web browser.
Fusion — As a brick-controller middleware, Fusion simplifies the processes for program planning between newsroom and automation systems. With its vendor agnostic design, Fusion minimizes the complexity of integration and the time required to design news productions.
