Quine is all about integrating and automating your workflows. Our ambition is to support the "tools you use"
QuineBox™IoT records conformable files and metadata in in realtime
QuineIngest (release June 2019) handles traditional ingest/transcode tasks, as well as syncing files between QuineCore and on-prem storage.
QuineCore is where stakeholders can browse, select, annotate, interact and share content and core links directly into Adobe Premiere. AVID MC integration through Interplay in the near future.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
