Quantel plays nicely with others through Marquis

At IBC Quantel and Marquis Broadcast announced a strategic partnership. The aim is to make it easier to integrate workflows between Quantel systems and third party editing, server and archive platforms. Quantel’s Enterprise sQ fast-turnaround production systems are used by many busy media organisations, especially for news and sport. The company recently added the sQ Fileflow application, which includes a RESTful (representational state transfer) API. This underpins the architecture of distributed systems, and allows third party systems to freely exchange content with Enterprise sQ. The Marquis Medway system takes advantage of this interoperability. It provides the technical and operational workflow layers to optimise media clip and sequence transfers, media format conversion and encoding, and metadata capture and integration. “Marquis Broadcast is expert in file-based workflows,” said Quantel’s Steve Owen. “We look forward to working closely with the the team to help our customers achieve enterprise-wide workflow integration.”
