Qview was born out of a necessity to provide remote communities a cost-effective media-streaming platform to distribute their content without losing copyright control and ownership.
The first version of Qview is a media-streaming platform hosted at the Qiniq Data Center in Ottawa providing southerners with access to northern content and providing northerners with culturally relevant content optimized for constrained satellite backbones.
As Qview develops with additional partnerships, our intent is to deploy local Qview servers in every community so that locally created content does not have to go over the backbone and can be distributed much more cost-effectively. Furthermore, Qview will be a media outlet where content creators can use web-based tools that we are also developing (such as Qme, an upcoming video conferencing platform) to distribute their content to other Nunavummiut.
Our first partner, the Inuit Broadcasting Corporation, was a catalyst that prompted us to finalize Qview for public use. We see lots of opportunities for local, governmental, and Inuit organizations who want to create uniquely Northern content and reach out to wider audiences.
