Key Features

  • An efficient way to send recorded files: Optimised transfer for high latency Satellite networks providing higher throughput and savings on transmission costs. Batch encoding and sending of multiple files make the software very efficient to send media.
  • Over 30% more efficient than standard FTP: Compared to standard FTP, the software is faster using different transfer methods, with the ability to transfer in UDP. Using multiple encoding rates and the ability to add details to the clips from the sender make it more than efficient for the broadcaster.
  • Performance increase with X.264 Codec in HD: Using the X.264 codec instead of the widely used H.264 means that certain improvements in compression  and encoding media is significantly improved.
  • “File resume” for no loss in transfer and play-out of incoming /incomplete files: In the event of the network connection being lost the system will automatically reconnect and pick up the transfer from where it left off, if unable to reconnect through the selected option the system will automatically fallback to HTTP send.
  • Send files to a Quicklink play-out server or to the cloud: To complement the Quicklink Store & Forward software, Quicklink offers the Standard Definition or High Definition Playout Server which incorporates the Quicklink Broadcast Manager software. The Broadcast Manager Software at the Playout Server enables full management for the play out, scheduling and archiving criteria of the media.
