New Cross-Platform Access to Quantel Workspace by Pixel NationInnovation further enhances open connectivity for generationQ systems (January 10, 2006)
Quantel partner Pixel Nation, Inc has released HttQ - a newly developed workflow plug-in for Quantels generationQ products that enables cross-platform access to media held in Quantel systems workspace.
HttQ exploits the freely available Quantel QXMLnet utilities to enable users to work with media in the Quantel workspace via any modern web browser such as Firefox, Safari, Internet Explorer and Opera. HttQ is genuinely cross-platform, giving users of Apple, Linux, Irix, Solaris and Windows based systems open access to all media held in Quantel workspace.
HttQ allows users of these systems to browse media on the Quantel system and to import and export media to/from network destinations in the background, all without requiring the involvement of the Quantel operator. Both batch and scheduled transfers are supported.
?HttQ has been a tremendous help with our DI workflow, reports Nick Ianelli, Digital Intermediates and Editorial Manager at iQ owner Deluxe/Efilm. ?The operator can focus his efforts on what he does best creating great pictures.
?Were very excited to be working with Quantel to produce compelling solutions, said Dmitry Gorodnitsky, President of Pixel Nation. ?The powerful combination of the generationQ platform and HttQ application offers a greatly enhanced workflow for both post and DI.
Steve Owen, Quantel Business Manager Post & DI, said, ?Post today is all about streamlined, integrated workflows. HttQ is an innovation that gives users of other systems a highly efficient window and gateway into Quantel workspace so that media handling can be optimised. It is also an excellent illustration of the inherent openness of our systems.
HttQ runs on Pablo, iQ, eQ, QEffects and Paintbox systems running V3 or later Quantel software. Further information about HttQ is available at www.pixelnation.com.
