Re: [AV Media Matters] AES
Is Audiocube a necessary front end to be able to use Quadriga?
Actually it is more the other way around - If you go to the web site and
press the news button there is the press release. Then press on the word
Quadriga which is in the headline "VIDIPAX FIRST TO OFFER AUTOMATED AUDIO
ARCHIVAL WITH 'QUADRIGA'" it will take you to a prodct information page. Do
some exploration at the site and you will also find a powerpoint
presentation that you can download to learn more. I am afraid that this
thread is making me more and more uncomfortable - I am not a Sascom
representative. Check it out on your own.
