L'Equipe 24/24 chooses Quantel for new multimedia digital production, delivery center
French sports information channel L'Equipe 24/24 chose Quantel and its partners to implement an integrated production and delivery system for broadcast, online and mobile content. The facility has been running since October and enables L'Equipe 24/24 and L'Equipe Production to provide digital content to cable and satellite channels, the Internet, digital radio channels and telecom operators.
L'Equipe's system is configured around Enterprise sQ servers with more than 800 hours of broadcast-quality storage and a Mission media asset management system. Journalists, editors, producers, archive managers and technicians share the same browse and edit applications (sQ View, sQ Cut, sQ Edit and sQ Edit Plus) as well as Mission Transfer and sQ Record.
To achieve the required workflow, Quantel worked closely with NETIA (which provided the archiving and documentation system) and MBT for automation.
