NEWBURY, UK — Quantel (www.quantel.com), here, has entered into a strategic partnership with Marquis Broadcast (www.marquisbroadcast.com) that will make it easier for Quantel customers to fully integrate workflows with third party editing, server and archive platforms. Marquis Broadcast is a specialist in content workflows and media integration software.
Quantel’s recently launched sQ Fileflow application exposes a RESTful API, allowing it to be controlled by Marquis Broadcast’s Medway interoperability engine, enabling third party systems to freely exchange content with Enterprise sQ. Medway is a sophisticated software toolkit that delivers 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; and metadata capture and integration.
“Marquis Broadcast’s staff are experts in file-based workflows and sQ Fileflow lets them easily include content on Enterprise sQ systems,” notes Steve Owen, Quantel’s marketing director. “We look forward to working closely with the Marquis Broadcast team to help our customers achieve enterprise-wide workflow integration.”
"At Marquis we are committed to interoperability by building bridges to other companies’ technologies," notes Chris Steele (pictured), product manager for Marquis Broadcast. “We are now working with over 25 separate partner organizations to integrate our media integration products with partners’ solutions to enabling broadcasters and other users of digital media to achieve maximum efficiencies from their workflow processes.”
