Quantel Launches New Broadcast Editing Tools
Quantel introduced the Jo and Ed broadcast editors for its Enterprise sQ and Newsbox HD integrated production systems as part of the Quattro software release at the NAB Show. Both products offer transparent SD and HD production capabilities.
Jo is called the “journalist editor,” and is configurable to individual requirements for viewing, shot selection, rough-cutting or desktop packaging. Jo is adapted to work inside newsroom computer systems with editing, scripting and control from a single interface.
Ed is called the “craft editor,” and is loaded with a new multilayer timeline and complete Quantel production toolset. Ed has a choice of platforms, either PC or Quantel hardware.
“Quantel has always recognized that workflow is the key to success in the integrated digital newsroom,” said Trevor Francis, Quantel’s marketing manager for broadcast. “Today the business of broadcasting requires professionals to add value to content, wherever it comes from, and to market that content on every outlet and platform. Jo and Ed bringing the power of Quantel’s workflow tools to that task.”
