How is q.air different from other playout solutions?

Flexibility, scalability, and ease-of-use are key challenges for today. Media companies of any size do not want to deal with technically complex processes but want streamlined solutions that allow them to focus on their core creative competency of producing and distributing content. As a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solution, q.air meets these requirements by providing an adjustable number of required channels, uptime-hours, data volumes, stream sources and destinations, that also include social media platforms.

The possibilities can be extended by APIs for integration with 3rd party systems. Operating q.air is a breeze thanks to an intuitive and easy-to-use dashboard and interface that is precisely tailored to the workflow requirements for live streaming and playout. q.air automatically orchestrates all necessary technical resources and cloud software in terms of transcoding, traffic system, real-time graphics, recording, playout, and streaming.

By using qibb as the underlying management platform, q.air clients are not buying into a restricted service, but have the possibility to grow this cloud-based solution using a powerful managed platform where unlimited combinations of different media workflows can be built in a customized way. Going on air has become a lot faster with the fully pre-packaged and ready-for-use playout solution. q.air is scalable both up and down and flexibly adapts to the company’s needs so that clients never pay for more resources than they use. Moreover, the customizable and easy-to-use UI makes playout workflows simple and effortless.
