“During February of 2012 at AFCON we managed to send 270 HD stories from Equatorial Guinea and Gabon to South Africa using our hotel internet. The total saving for the broadcaster was 2 Million GBP in Satellite costs. We currently have quicklink systems in Kenya, Nigeria, Angola, Zambia and South Africa.”

1. What is Quicklink Software Store & Forward?
The Quicklink Software Store & Forward allows you to transfer pre-recorded video clips to a Quicklink Playout Server. You can record clips using Store & Forward for later transmission or transfer rushes or edited clips that you have.
2. Can I send batch files? How is this done?
You can send a group/batch of files. You need to create a job and queue the files to be encoded and sent at the same time.
3. What happens if the network connection is lost during sending?
The software will keep on attempting to send the data. Partial data will be transferred. If you lose connectivity completely, the system will automatically reconnect and pick up the transfer from where it stopped. There is no effect on video quality.
4. How is this more efficient than standard FTP?
Compared to standard FTP, the software is faster using different transfer methods with the ability to transfer in UDP.(User Datagram Protocol)
5. Can I combine Store & Forward with a live Package?
Our installer for windows will install both Live and Store & Forward but you will need separate licences. For the Mac it is a separate download and licence. You can purchase a Windows or Mac Store & Forward licence package together.
6. Do you have to send to a Quicklink Server?
The Quicklink Software Store & Forward transmits to a Quicklink Enterprise Server. Additionally , the Windows software can transmit to the cloud (Quicklink News Warehouse)
