aQ Broadcast

aQ Broadcast Limited designs, develops, manufactures and supports an integrated range of Newsroom, Scripting, Automation and Media Management software alongside Video Server and Production Suite hardware.

Its newsroom software, QNews, is a proven Newsroom Computer System that provides script and rundown management, as well as newsroom automation, for every type of news environment from large national broadcasters to small, local operations.

QNet is a networked scripting solution that offers unique, multi-user, multi-column script production tools, including shot locks, cut lines, scene numbering, camera cards, flexible formatting and optional prompting.

For transmission automation, aQ has developed QTx, which is transmission automation software that provides station automation based on the same database and client system as QNews. It provides a very cost-effective solution in environments where output consists of both live and pre-recorded content.

QMedia media management software provides wide-ranging media management functionality, including ingest, review, deletion, transfer, proxy handling, and archive and restore handling.

aQ’s aVS Video Server hardware is an innovative range of modular video servers that scale from an entry-level, two-output unit up to large, flexible and redundant storage and port solutions.

aVS firmware options are available for a wide range of features, including marking, sub-clipping, conforming, transcoding, streaming, transferring and delay looping.

aQ’s aPS Production Suite is a complete, multi-user, integrated production system that combines many of the discreet components from a typical studio workflow into a single system to enable users to create a complete, scripted television production.

aQ Broadcast is the only British company to produce this range of integrated broadcast hardware and software solutions, based on hands-on experience from all sectors of the UK broadcast industry over twenty years. All design and development work is carried out by aQ’s own engineering team, with technical support provided from offices in the UK, US and New Zealand.
