Quicklink to demonstrate game-changing AV1 codec within industry-leading remote guest solutions at IBC 2023

Quicklink will be demonstrating their award-winning remote guest solutions, now featuring the game-changing AV1 codec for enhanced production quality, at IBC 2023. The introduction of AV1 delivers undeniably better image quality than H.265/HEVC and can maintain high-quality from low to high data rates, making it highly capable of consistent, superior-quality, real-time video delivery.

Quicklink has announced that its remote guest solution suite will now support the new highly-efficient AV1 codec – offering 30% better compression over H.265/HEVC resulting in huge quality improvements over traditional video conferencing platforms.

Quicklink continues to be the industry-leader of remote guest solutions, providing award-winning solutions for our valued customers. We continuously seek to improve our solutions, so we are extremely excited to showcase the power of AV1, directly integrated into our remote guest solutions” said Richard Rees, CEO of Quicklink

The Quicklink Studio (ST55) solution allows for the introduction of high-quality remote guest contributions and works within a simple web browser, with no apps or software installs required by any remote guests. Your remote guest talent can be invited via SMS, WhatsApp, email, or by generating a simple URL link, and with the Assisted Invite feature, they can be taken through a series of step-by-step instructions to ensure your contributors are fully prepared, set up, and tested to go into a live environment.

Using Quicklink Studio Servers (ST100, ST102, ST208, and ST200), Quicklink enables output of your remote guest contributions at the highest possible quality with ultra-low latency to professional broadcast outputs such as HD-SDI, NDI, and more. The ST100, ST102, ST208, and ST200 are essential elements in any point-to-point broadcast solution where ultra-low latency and high-quality links are required.

All Quicklink solutions, including remote callers, Quicklink ST500, and Quicklink’s broadcast output hardware (ST100, ST102, ST208, and ST200), can be managed within a single feature-packed and intuitive interface – the Quicklink Manager.

The integration of AV1 results in huge quality improvements over traditional video conferencing platforms such as Microsoft Teams and Zoom, further pushing the boundaries of broadcast-quality standards” said Richard Rees, CEO of Quicklink

Quicklink’s award-winning remote guest solutions are trusted by some of the world’s leading brands to facilitate high-quality remote guest contributions, including BBC, Aljazeera, CNN, BT Sport, NEP, Microsoft, Bloomberg, CBS, Sky, and more!
