Integration

Quine is all about integrating and automating your workflows. Our ambition is to support the "tools you use", but platforms are added by paying customer requests.

QuineBox™IoT records conformable files and metadata in 1-3 codecs in realtime and pushes the files to your destination of preference, locally or in the cloud. 

The QuineBox IoT makes any supported camera a connected device, and you can push files and metadata to any API or ftp/sftp destination.

If you use PureBlends MovieSlate®, you will get all camera-metadata recorded frame-locked and script-notes will be shipped with the files immediately after the Script Supervisor has signed out the shot.

We work closely with Adobe and Creative Cloud integration.

QuineBox™IoT

The right way to quickly bring media and metadata to the cloud and to the editor

- any cloud service, any editor

Media production is moving rapidly to the cloud. Whether your solution is based on Microsoft Azure, Amazon AWS, IBM-, Baidu- or Huawei cloud services or your services are based on cloud-based applications built on any of these providers and delivered by AVID, CatDV, IPv, WeVideo, FrameIO, Drylab or others, the QuineBox™IoT can serve your solution with conformable files and robust metadata.

We currently have the ONLY solution that can serve conformable files both to pure cloud-based services and hybrid-production environments directly from supported cameras.

For suitable productions and purposes, like shared-editing, running your video through an AI system to extract additional metadata,  like face- and object- recognition, sharing of info within a group and in the longer run: Automating AR experiences, cloud services are unsurpassed. 

For traditional offline/online production, the cloud-files can be used for offline, as long as the service retains metadata.

For news and documentary and publishing directly to web, the files from the QuineBox™IoT can be used directly as masters.


The files from QuineBox™IoT are optimised for editing and preview for high-end productions, and can be the files you take to publishing for quick turnaround news and documentary productions,

QuineBox™IoT
Use - cases

Through our meetings with customers and distributors world-wide, we have seen a number of use-cases for the QuineBox IoT. These examples are just to get you started. The possibilities when you have a connected camera with robust files and metadata, are close to infinite.

TV-drama/Feature films - Location

The Netflix/NRK show Norsemen has been a model user case for us from the beginning.

the show shoots with 5 units on a remote island producing 2-6 TB of RAW files per day.

To get the files ready for preview and edit, there is currently a large manual transcode and fiber-based uploads operation involved. With the QuineBox IoT, dailies and editorials can be delivered directly to cloud and the editorial SAN from set, the producer can follow the development of the shooting day directly and it s possible to navigate the shooting progress based on slate-information, as the shooting progresses.

Snowfall

Studio productions

Snøfall was a 24 episode 2-camera location/studio production shot over more than a year.

Qi was the ingest tool for the entire production and the studio months we also contributed with prototype  QuineBox IoT's.

On the production we used Pure Blends MovieSlate® for script notes and Drylab Dailies for dailies.

MovieSlate® was connected directly to the cameras through the QuineBox IoT. This meant that all camera metadata (file-name, roll, technical data) was recorded frame locked to the slate and dynamic metadata was frame locked. 

Journalist.jpg

Remote journalists - Broadcast

There are several use cases for everyday news/broadcast.

The district office 1
Remote
Journalist - editor at the office.
Typically a journalist leaves in the morning to do an interview or cover a story. Spends almost 1/3 of the day travelling to the interview, spends an hour or two on the actual coverage and then the rest of the day driving back to the office. 
When home he or she starts offloading the media. Practically this means that the "news" aren't ready until the day after, and that each journalist isn't very productive.

Sports.jpg

Large sports events

For larger sports- and cultural events, journalists can walk around doing continuous interviews ad reports, and the editors can sit back at the base and finish and publish the stories.

Online media

Working with a system like WeVideo, the files can be uploaded to a shared editing and publishing platform for immediate publishing. 

Essentially you get the same connectivity from a professional SDI-based camera, as you do with your mobile phone.

Better quality and quick turnaround.

Documentaries

The QuineBox™IoT has 1 TB internal storage.

This is enough to keep shooting whenever you are out of 4G/internet reach.

Once you are online, the files gets shipped home to the editors.

This keeps the editing department constantly updated with files and content, while the documentarist will have easy access to most of the production at all times, can do test-edits and follow the progress of his/her production constantly and fill the gaps as he/she goes.

The added security of having the recording in the cloud, shipped to the production house and on the QuineBox™IoT, can prove invaluable for critical once-in-a-lifetime recordings.

Main specifications

  • Records up to 3 encodings of the SDI output (h.264 + Prores/DNxHD would be the most common combo)
  • Records conformable files. You can securely start your edit once the scene is shot and conform back to originals for online and post processes
  • Supports ARRI, RED and SONY cameras
  • The ultimate automatic server of files to the cloud and local destinations. Add as many destinations as your network can handle.  
  • Makes the camera a connected device with remote control capacity.
  • Modular in hardware and software. Third parties are welcome to qualify their applications and also hardware projects for the system.
  • Can connect and upload to most cloud services and upload files and metadata 
  • 1 TB internal SSD. Never run out of space for your proxies.
  • No network? Files are recorded and ready to use whenever a network or USB drive is available.
  • SDI passthrough with full HANC and VANC space
  • 2x serial ports (for f. ex. RCP metadata from RED and direct support of Cooke i-data)
  • Qi handles files- and metadata from prep to post. Syncronizes dailies and edit-proxies at ingest and transcodes and missing shots. (Typically you can not record varispeed shots through SDI)
  • For really quick "local" turnaround: Mount the QuineBox™IoT as a network drive, and start editing and publishing directly from the box once the shot is done.
  • Local (non-internet based) transfers to on-set editor (Q1 2018)
  • "Fleet control" for larger users. If you have a number of QuineBox™IoT's, they can be assigned to a private domain and be administered by your in-house IT department.

Upgrades in the pipe 

  • Point to point wifi solution (hardware module + software upgrade) that gives robust wifi connection for up to 1000 meters with up to 10 units on set working robustly.
  • With this upgrade:
    Streaming and playback to on-set or networked solutions with switching between multiple cameras. (No camera department involvement needed for the script supervisor to review shots from any of the cameras) (Expected release: Q2 2018)
  • TC and sync-master module that gives TC, shutter-sync, recording of witness-cameras and IMU data based on a module from Ambient that plugs into Ambients AC network for TimecodeSync. (Expected release Q3 2018)
  • Witness-camera and tracking-rig (expected release Q3 2018)
 

Integration with:

  • Adobe CC. We have been working with Adobe on Premiere integration from the get-go.

    Drylabs Dailies Server can run directly on the QuineBox to efficiently serve smaller productions without extra on-set hardware.
  • MovieSlate® script supervising tool from PureBlend. (iOS)
    Qi handles the day-reports from movies late and connects the shots with the metadata for post-production
    If MovieSlate® is on the same network as the boxes, an .xml with all the metadata from the shots is sent to the QuineBox™IoT, and shipped with dailies and edit-proxies to cloud and local storage.
    MovieSlate® connects directly to the cameras through the QuineBox and records TC locked static and dynamic metadata from the cameras.
    Slate-info can be sent from movies late and written to the camera-originals.
  • RED cameras
  • Sony cameras (FS5, FS7, FS7 mk II, F5, F55, F65)
  • Additional cameras can be added on request, for paying customers.
