What does cloud playout mean in the case of q.air?

q.air is a package of carefully selected software components that are built from scratch to efficiently run on cloud computing resources. Resources in use include compute nodes, file servers, storage, databases, network infrastructure that are fully virtualized and support scalability and elasticity.

To remain flexible in respect of the utilized cloud provider and native toolsets, q.air leverages the power of the underlying management platform qibb, which acts as abstraction and orchestration layer for any cloud-based media workload that can be managed remotely via web interface.
