Fast Turnaround Production with Quantel InterSite

Fast turnaround television production has always been a demanding environment. Success in news and sport depends upon satisfying two competing objectives of speed to air and the creation of a compelling story. Speed to air requires closely coupled systems that allow media to be ingested, edited and played out in parallel, with the minimum of delay. Compelling stories often require first hand reports from eyewitnesses and footage of the scene, all of which takes time and at a remote location, combined with older footage relevant to the story that will be in longer- term archive storage. These conflicting demands are driving broadcasters to look for new and innovative approaches beyond traditional broadcast workflows and technology. Quantel is constantly evolving its fast turnaround production systems to address these challenges and those our customers will face in the future. In this article, we discuss how QTube InterSite can help broadcasters address those conflicting requirements. QTube is a product range based upon IT standards that delivers on broadcasters’ needs.
