QTAKE 1.6 now available

Most of the new functionality is dedicated to streaming. QTAKE Stream was designed specifically for professional filmmakers and gained worldwide praise for its ultra-low latency, frame-based metadata support, and studio-grade security. We are taking it to a new level with some great new features now and a surprise feature which will be announced next week.

Dolby Vision® Support

Experience the ultimate remote grading with QTAKE Cloud Stream HDR. In many cases, clients cannot attend editing or color-grading sessions in person and cannot rely on exported clips because of the slow turn-around. QTAKE offers a solution for interactive and effective remote grading thanks to its high-quality, low-latency streaming of Dolby Vision enabled content. Current Dolby Vision functionality is included in the GRADE Module.

We are introducing the new add-on module for four 4K camera support. Four channel recording, playback, image processing, compositing, live editing. All in full 4K resolution. Requires X8 module and 4-channel 12G video interface. For low latency processed output with four independent 4K channels we recommend 4x QOD+.
