VDS Announces New Workflow Utilities For Quantels Q Range

New line of file transfer/conversion utilities (August 26, 2005)

VDS, a leading developer of broadcast automation software, content design applications and plug-in products, announces the release of three new workflow utility plug-ins for Quantels Q range of products.

reQuest 3.3 provides the Quantel generationQ range operator with a full suite of file transfer/conversion tools. With reQuest, file interchange between generationQ and products like Pinnacle Thunder/Lightning, Legacy Quantel Systems, or Photoshop has never been easier. Cross platform compatibility is assured as reQuest is supported in the iQ, gQ, eQ, QPaintbox, the Pro Range, and QEffects environments. reQuest makes the task of transferring files simple and intuitive. In addition, reQuest supports the updating of database descriptive information where applicable, allowing the generationQ operator to create or update metadata remotely. reQuest supports the following file formats: Alias Pix Files (.pix), Chyron RGB and Still Files, Liberty (.im), Maya (.iff), Quantel (vpb), Photoshop (.psd) including layers, PICT, Pinnacle G Files (.g), PNG, Softimage (.pic), Wavefront (.rla) and Raw YUV.

reConnect gives the Quantel Q range the ability to browse, import, and export image files to and from Quantel legacy systems with Picturenet Plus, such as Paintbox, Picturebox, Hal, Henry, Editbox and Pictureframe. A great low cost utility for those not requiring the full feature set of reQuest.

psdQ gives the Quantel Q range the ability to browse, import and export Photoshop (psd) files, including importing PS layers.

?We are very pleased to be able to offer Quantel operators this new line of file transfer/conversion utilities, comments David-Ray Worthington, Director of Marketing and Product Development at VDS. ?Customers are now able to pick and choose functionality according to their needs.
