'Quicklink Manager portal meant that we did not need to have a Talent Producer on site'
Soul Kitchen Creative has used the Quicklink Studio (ST55) as a remote contribution solution for productions for History Channel, Warner Music, Peacock Network and Nickelodeon.
“We had experimented with several different call-in systems with varying degrees of success. Ultimately, we needed the best quality call-in system that also allowed us to send the clean video feeds out to iso recorders that were not software based,” said Michael Scalere, Creative Director at Soul Kitchen Creative.
Michael added; “Furthermore, the Quicklink Manager portal meant that we did not need to have a Talent Producer on site. Remote clients could greet talent independently of our studio should they need to. Overall the Quicklink solutions solved all our production pinch points while providing superior image quality”
One recent event that the Quicklink solutions was used for was a panel discussion project to be played at New York’s Comic Con event in October. Soul Kitchen Creative were tasked by Peacock Network to produce three separate panel discussions, all with talent calling in from their homes and offices. For this project, Soul Kitchen Creative enlisted Quicklink’s Studio solution to facilitate a call between nine panellists and a moderator. The Quicklink solutions enabled Soul Kitchen Creative to have complete remote management of all panellists, while obtaining discrete high-quality audio and HD video from each of the panellists.
Quicklink Studio works within a web browser, with no apps or software installs required by the contributor. Contributors can be invited via SMS, WhatsApp, email or by generating a URL link. From the Quicklink Manager, an operator is able to remotely control and configure the contributor’s device camera, microphone and speaker settings.
