Signature Adds Quicklink Studio

The Chicago based Signature Production Group, a live and virtual event production company, have adopted Quicklink Studio and Quicklink ST102’s for connecting remote presenters into virtual events.

The Quicklink solutions were provided to Signature by Key Code Media, a US-based systems integrator for A/V, broadcast, and post-production solutions.

Like most organisations, the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) cancelled its yearly meeting and had a requirement to connect 4,000 members worldwide for a multi-day virtual meeting. Atlanta-based technical agency 3D-TD contracted Signature to broadcast the General Sessions through one of their ten virtual control rooms. For this event, Signature used Quicklink Studio and Quicklink ST102s to connect bi-directional audio and video to Singapore, Denver, Oklahoma City, Fort Worth and Las Vegas, all through their facility outside of Chicago.

Dave Schwarz, Owner of Signature Production Group said, “Quicklink is our ‘top shelf’ solution for connecting remote presenters. We needed it to be as easy as possible, secure, high-quality, and 100% reliable. It checks off all of those boxes and is our ‘go to’ when our clients can afford the best connection method possible.”

Joel Paige, GM of Signature Production Group added, “At first, it looked like the product we were looking for didn’t exist due to our simultaneous use of NDI video and Dante audio. But the Quicklink developers stepped up and customized a solution that fit our workflow perfectly. The collaborative relationship between our companies has been a big part of the key to the success we’ve had with the Quicklink solutions.”
