Quantel today announced that its new software architecture, revolutionQ, has been recognised with an IABM Game-Changer Award. Presented at the NAB Show, the new award from the IABM (International Association of Broadcasting Manufacturers) recognises five products that have great potential to revolutionise the industry.
“The 2012 NAB show presented an exciting field for our judging panel, and we look forward to watching how Quantel and other winners of the inaugural IABM Game-Changers Award help to shape the future of our industry,” said IABM Director General Peter White.
At NAB 2012, Quantel unveiled revolutionQ, a new software architecture that heralds a real revolution in broadcast production. Using low cost COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) storage allows customers to choose their hardware platform. With revolutionQ and low cost storage, years of content can be stored online and immediately available to multiple users. Ingest becomes archive; Hierarchical Storage Management is obsolete. revolutionQ architecture integrates fully with Quantel’s current Enterprise sQ systems, continuing Quantel’s tradition of protecting customers’ investments for the long term. revolutionQ enables true fast turnaround workflows and scales to handle magazine and program production too. A major US broadcaster has made a multi-million dollar investment with Quantel for revolutionQ technology.
A panel of impartial experts, none of whom are IABM members, from across the globe reviewed products and solutions during the first two days of the show and selected this year’s award-winners. More information about the awards and the award winners can be found at www.theiabm.org/gamechangers
