As part of the cloud application management and orchestration platform qibb, q.air is a fully cloud-based playout automation for occasional pop-up or event-based channels. It enables a full-featured end-to-end signal workflow – from ingest to distribution – and covers further media tasks like storage, media management, transcoding, graphics, planning, playout and streaming. The system is designed for managing and distributing linear content to social media, broadcast, IPTV and OTT platforms.
q.air is available as a qibb go! package, is implemented as a SaaS (Software as a Service) platform and hosted on a public cloud. The platform uses a microservice-based architecture combined with provisioned instances, that are orchestrated by qibb and can be started up and shut down as needed. q.air uses a pay-as-you-go model, so customers are only billed for resources and services they actually use.
