Quine's founders, Stian Vrba, Kristian Skarseth and Gunleik Groven - met on the POPART H2020 research project at LABO mixed realities.
Quine is founded to disruptively improve workflows in film-and TV production
Developing a groundbreaking connected/distributed Production Asset Management system (PAM) we realized that we had to write our own development frameworks.
The goal was to have a product ready by January 2020.

Joining Telia Startup
January 10th, three years after starting up and just barely on our projected timeline, QuineCore is out of Beta and we get our first "release" productions.
Telia has created campaigns for it's startups perfectly timed for the release version of QuineCore.
We're off to a flying start with new productions and producers coming in.
Covid. The entire production-world is closed down-
Despite this, we manage to finalize an investment-round and work on.
While Covid is a major bump, producers start to more actively look for collaborative solutions that demands a lower density of people on-set and in post.
Outlier, the first production to fully depend on our exchange solutions starts shooting in Northern Norway.
Editors in Oslo, post all over the country, shooting on multiple simultaneous locations.
We start producing use-case videos.
Here is Asta (Feature film)
6 months later, the "new-production-normal" is slowly getting into gear.
We integrate with Drylab's set-report, a popular script-supervisor tool
So far in our first year in release we have served around 20 productions and contributed to more than 150 deliverables as feature films and episodes on TV.
Here is a bit of feedback from some of our users in 2020
We are greateful and have just started.
