Qvest implements its cloud-based video editing solutions in Mediacorp’s Channel News Asia (CNA) workflows
Mediacorp, Singapore’s national media network and largest content creator, has recently expanded its capabilities with a cloud video editing solution from Qvest. New virtual editing suites also pave the way for Mediacorp to implement more efficient, collaborative, and remote workflows at Channel News Asia (CNA).
Mediacorp, based in Singapore’s innovative high-tech cluster “one-north”, employs over 2,500 professionals, including more than 300 journalists and engages over three million people in Singapore daily across the four national languages of English, Chinese, Malay and Tamil.
Their CNA team can now work outside of premises, thanks to integrated cloud editing workstations. Central cloud management via the qibb integration platform enables access to integrated and location-independent, predefined programs and functions, such as Adobe Premiere Pro. The PC-over-IP protocol, powered by the cloud workstation’s dedicated GPU, provides an appropriate experience when using the integrated applications.
The cloud system is based on qibb, managed as a platform-as-a-service. The cloud architecture, individually configured to meet Mediacorp’s requirements, has been tailored for HD resolution editing. Mediacorp can customize the functionalities of the cloud environment with additional services at any time.
Thomas Müller, Qvest Group CTO: “Ever-faster production cycles in the media landscape and limited resources, both in the technological supply chain and in terms of skilled staff, call for new solutions. Thanks to the possibilities and potential of our cloud-based editing workflow, the newsroom gains flexibility – while ensuring the highest journalistic standards. We are proud to be able to support the Mediacorp team with this solution on a sustainable basis.”
