A new agreement signs a new relationship
between video communication specialist
Quadrus Technology and European distributor
Holdan now representing the line of multi-stream
ingest products that are an integral part of today’s
“Quadrus’ tight integration with Avid and Apple makes
it extremely interesting for professional and broadcast
environments. Ingesting multiple HD sources onto
the timeline for instant editing will significantly reduce
production and post production workflows. We’re
thrilled to be working with Quadrus Technology” said
Allan Leonhardsen of Holdan.
Quadrus has already attracted significant interest
from broadcasters and post production facilities that
are keen to replace VTRs with software solutions that
deliver far greater functionality and features.
Instead of racks of recorders, Quadrus can be installed
on an HP Z820 workstation to deliver true multi-channel
capture and excellent chase editing performance. As
production budgets and timescales continue to fall,
Quadrus can help organizations achieve considerable
cost-savings and workflow efficiencies. “We’re looking
forward to working with Holdan who will help promote
the technology to users across Europe” said Dean
Jackson of Quadrus Technology.

The DFS auto tuning makes them simple to use and
the range compares favourably with WEVI. We chose
the smaller HDMI only transmitters as they fit perfectly
on our DSLR and C300 rigs”.
