Having seen a great increase in the need for those in the Media processing industry (post houses, editors, colourists, and alike) to have the capability to QC their content remotely, Venera Technologies has taken idea of usage-based pricing introduced with its Pulsar Pay-Per-Use (PPU) on-premise QC software, and applied it to Quasar, the company’s native-cloud QC service.
According to Fereidoon Khosravi, SVP Business Development with Venera, “Up until recently, Quasar had been used by those Media companies and organisations that had already moved their content workflow to the cloud, and typically used one of Venera’s tiered subscription plans. However, given the current circumstances, there are a large number of Media Professionals, looking for a remote way to process (including QC) their content, but have been hesitant because they are unfamiliar with the Cloud and what can be done in the Cloud, and equally important, are not interested in committing to a monthly subscription plan due to the uneven and uncertain volume of work.
“Given our experience of working closely with a wide range of Media professionals, we have come up with what we think is a winning practical solution for Remote QC – the cloud-based Quasar Ad-hoc plan.”
- File storage;
- An easy-to-use tool to upload your content to the cloud.
- Instruction on how to use Quasar and its pre-made QC templates (you can modify them as you wish);
- Browser-based interface; and
- Users only pay for what they QC, simply load credits into your Quasar account using a credit card, and your account is debited as you QC your content.
