At this year’s IBC Show in Amsterdam, Qvest Media will showcase its latest product, Qvest.Cloud, in a pre-launch presentation. Qvest.Cloud is an advanced management platform for media companies that enables third-party cloud applications to be networked into one integrated end-to-end workflow and used and monitored via a central user interface.
Qvest said in a press statement that Qvest.Cloud makes it easier to integrate and operate media services and applications using web technologies. Qvest.Cloud breaks down the barriers between installations in local data centres, private clouds and public clouds – such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure or Google Cloud.
Integral components of the platform that has been designed as cloud-native application are cross-application functions such as workflow orchestration, cloud automation, user management with single sign-on, access management, monitoring, measuring & billing and comprehensive IT security.
Based on an open interface design, third-party IT and media applications can be aggregated with Qvest.Cloud, merged together and used without having to deal with the hurdles of as many user and administration interfaces: Qvest.Cloud gives users direct access to all functions enabled for them.
This benefits not only traditional media companies but all companies wishing to efficiently manage, edit, distribute and monetise media assets along their digital media supply chain. With Qvest.Cloud, almost all business processes and media workflows can be accelerated and made agile to react to changing market conditions and production requirements.
Vertical and horizontal scalability of the Qvest.Cloud platform allows for the temporary addition of required services and additional computing power. Load peaks of on-premise applications can be automatically scaled using cloud resources as a hybrid solution, eliminating the need for the technically complex and cost-intensive expansion of locally operated infrastructures. Contract management is also radically simplified, as only one usage contract is concluded with Qvest Media.
Qvest Media offers its new product for applications of all sizes: from pay-as-you-go models and bundles for traditional media production to tailored corporate solutions and enterprise installations that can be used to integrate the infrastructural requirements of large companies.
Peter Nöthen, CEO of Qvest Media Group.“After a multi-stage evaluation process, we made the decision in autumn 2017 to realise Qvest.Cloud. The acquisition of the software specialist HMS media solutions was subsequently completed and we entered into development. Qvest.Cloud will be fully market-ready at the NAB show next year. The pre-launch at IBC is an important milestone on this development path. Here we will get to know first-hand what business and technological aspects can play an additional role for Qvest.Cloud. Moreover, the trade show offers the best opportunity to win further manufacturers and partners for the Qvest.Cloud ecosystem“, Nöthen continues.
Qvest Media will be presenting Qvest.Cloud to the public at its stand 3.B40 at this year’s IBC in Amsterdam for the first time. In live demonstrations, visitors will have the opportunity to gain their first views of the product range, as well as the functionality and use cases of Qvest.Cloud.
