(September 13, 2012) Quantel and Marquis Broadcast, specialist in content workflows and media integration software, announced today that the companies have entered into a strategic partnership agreement. The partnership will make it easier for Quantel customers to fully integrate workflows between Quantel systems and third party editing, server and archive platforms.
Quantel's Enterprise sQ fast-turnaround production systems are at the heart of many media organizations' news and sports production environments. Quantel's recently launched sQ Fileflow application exposes a RESTful API, allowing it to be controlled by the Marquis Medway interoperability engine, enabling third party systems to freely exchange content with Enterprise sQ.
Medway is a sophisticated software tool kit delivering a seamless and cost-effective integration between leading broadcast content applications. Medway unifies multi-vendor systems by providing technical and operational workflows that optimize and integrate:
- Media clip and sequence transfers
- Media format conversion and transcoding
- Metadata capture and integration
"We are delighted to be working with Quantel in order to offer our shared customers solutions to their complex broadcast workflows," said Chris Steele, Product Manager, Marquis Broadcast.
"Marquis Broadcast are experts in file-based workflows and sQ Fileflow lets them easily include content on Enterprise sQ systems," said Steve Owen, Quantel Marketing Director. "We look forward to working closely with the Marquis Broadcast team to help our customers achieve enterprise-wide workflow integration."
