Quartz and Sundance announce working partnership

Quartz Electronics, a leading provider of routers and master control switchers, and Sundance Digital, a major provider of cost-effective, high-performance automation solutions for broadcast master control and television news, have formed a working partnership to provide an advanced extensible protocol that enhances control of Quartz QMC Master Control Switchers operating under Sundance Digital's automation.
The groundbreaking new protocol provides a means of selecting internally stored logos and DVE moves under fully automated control which were previously inaccessible from the playlist. Working together, the two companies defined and tested the technology that is already being used on air.
Pete Challinger of Quartz commented: "We are very pleased to be partnering with Sundance as their Titan™ system is a good match for the scalable multi-channel capabilities of our QMC Master Control System."
Titan is Sundance Digital's highly expandable automation product for the "next generation" of television facilities that operate a primarily tapeless on-air facility. Titan was designed for the high channel count, server-based facility, as well as geographically dispersed central casting operations. Titan permits dynamic re-assignment of playlist control via its intuitive, information rich, graphical user interface. The Titan GUI also facilitates the management and control of multiple active playlists.
Robert C. Johnson, president of Sundance Digital added, "Sundance Digital is delighted to partner with Quartz in pioneering an advanced protocol that allows a previously unobtainable level of control."
Quartz Electronics is a leading provider of Routers and Master Control Switchers, as well as the fastest growing provider of multi-channel Master Control systems.
Sundance Digital, located in the metropolitan Dallas, Texas area, is an award-winning provider of high-performance television automation solutions.
