Fairlight, a manufacturer of audio post, live and video production solutions, and Quantel, a developer of news and sports production systems and high quality post, announce the upcoming release of Fairlight's new audio post Gateway integration module with Quantel QTube. Fairlight Gateway with Quantel QTube integration will be on display at the Fairlight booth C1459 at NAB 2014 in Las Vegas (April 7-10).

Fairlight creates editing, mixing, plug-ins, file transfer and multichannel recording, all under the fast control of Fairlight’s tactile control surfaces featuring its patented Picture Key Technology, for audio post-production. Quantel’s QTube technology provides industry partners with direct access to audio, video and metadata held on its Enterprise sQ production systems. QTube has a RESTful API that is available to companies such as Fairlight, and enables development of new workflows with minimal engineering overhead.

The Quantel QTube API gives Fairlight audio editing systems instant real-time access to Quantel video compositions directly within the Fairlight software. Fairlight’s Gateway provides access to the Quantel Enterprise sQ storage, with no rendering or video file import required, providing frame accurate playback, jogging and scrubbing over a local LAN network or over the Internet.

Extensive search functions allow the operator to quickly find pending work, and import audio assets from the Quantel server with ease. At the end of the session, the final audio is laid back directly to the Quantel server via Fairlight Gateway.

“Tight system integration within a broadcast facility is vital to meeting the challenges of today’s demanding production deadlines," says Tino Fibaek, CTO of Fairlight. "The close collaboration between Fairlight and Quantel and the open design architecture of both systems was crucial in the development of the Fairlight Gateway module for QTube with the objective to deliver seamless workflow integration and faster throughput.”

“The QTube API really does enable tight integration of systems from different manufacturers," says Steve Owen, Quantel's marketing director. "The Fairlight Gateway is a perfect example, adding powerful audio post-production tools to complement the unrivalled editing workflow of our Enterprise sQ systems.”
