Corus Entertainment Selects Quantel Genetic Engineering and eQ for New Headquarters


Corus Entertainment, one of Canada’s most successful integrated media and entertainment companies, has selected Quantel’s Genetic Engineering shared workflow and eQ post production systems for Corus’ postproduction online facility in the company’s new Toronto headquarters, Corus Quay. The systems are being supplied by BSE, Quantel’s Canadian reseller.

The first Genetic Engineering system, with three Quantel eQ high definition finishing systems, will handle all promotional, sales and production work for Corus’ 20 plus specialty services. The second system, with two eQs, will handle online and versioning for Corus’ world-renowned Nelvana children’s animated programming stream.

As well as enabling each work group to share all media within its own environment, the two Genetic Engineering systems will also be able to exchange media between themselves as well as with a shared SAN, giving Corus complete workflow flexibility. The systems will be commissioned over the next few weeks and will go live later in the summer.

“We are pleased with Quantel’s Genetic Engineering system,” said Scott Dyer, CEO, Corus Entertainment. “The new system will help us capitalize on our end-to-end digital workflow, providing high-end compositing, strong deliverable versioning and full integration with our Final Cut Pro offline systems. This will improve our in-house capabilities for both television and production, creating two distinct workflows as well as integration between our third-party storage and digital asset management systems.”
