(Amsterdam, IBC 2014--September 17, 2014) Quantel launched sQ Fileflow 2 at IBC, adding a raft of powerful new file handling capabilities for Quantel Enterprise sQ news and sports production system users. sQ Fileflow 2 delivers more flexibility, easier IT integration, faster workflows and increased productivity.
sQ Fileflow 2 comprises multiple independent engines; users can simply add more engines for increased bandwidth, speed and resilience. Enterprise sQ users can begin working with file-based media as soon as ingest commences, and export new files faster than realtime.
Easier IT integration
New roles-based user accounts at user, media manager and administrator levels make system management easier. Security is enhanced with the support of HTTPS for both file and UI connections. Support for HTTPS also makes it easier to integrate sQ Fileflow 2 into security-conscious broadcast IT systems.
FTP Client support enables easy file exchange with FTP and SFTP servers via Active and Passive FTP. New XAVC import and export enables easier integration with XAVC workflows and superfast import of XAVC camera files. 2K, UHD and 4K import is also supported, with automatic resizing to HD/SD on ingest.
The new HTML5 UI delivers cross-browser access and support for tablets and other devices – now users can be productive wherever they are. New queue management with realtime charts and graphs enables users to check the status of their job in seconds, and access all settings and options remotely through the new Web UI.
“File-based workflows are a fundamental part of the modern broadcast production chain. sQ Fileflow 2 ensures that all our many Enterprise sQ users around the world are equipped to handle files flexibly, efficiently and reliably - benefiting from cost-effective IT hardware and open standards,” said Steve Owen, Quantel Marketing Director.
