Seven installs its sixth Quantel
Australia's Seven Network has purchased its sixth Quantel, in the shape of a new Newsbox HD, for its Canberra Parliament House broadcasting operation.

The new four-port Newsbox HD for SevenCanberra comes with 85 hours of storage, includes Quantel's sQ Cut editing applications, sQ Record and sQ Play controls. It can support all aspects of news production system from ingest to video/audio editing and playout.

"Quantel helped us transform our efficiency and speed-to-air when we centralised our operations around our Melbourne hub, which enabled us to retain complete flexibility in each of our regional operations but also to benefit in full from the power of Quantel's no-wait server technology," said Trevor Bird, Seven's General Manager, Group Technical Services. "In use, the systems have been reliable and well-supported, which also gave us added confidence in choosing Quantel again for the new Canberra Parliament operation. [For this project] we also needed to move quickly, and the pre-packaged nature of Newsbox HD and its ease of use mean that we can put it into operation in the very short timescale we've set ourselves."
