How much will Qwire cost?

There is no charge to composers, music supervisors, video editors, music editors, or other studio employees or contractors. Down the road, we are planning on a “freemium” model where certain functionality may only be available for a small additional monthly fee.
 

What hardware/software do I need to use Qwire?

Qwire can run on any modern Mac or PC with an Internet connection. Qwire requires a copy of Filemaker Pro 13 which can be purchased from Filemaker or directly from Qwire at a discount.
 

How does Qwire protect my information?

Qwire utilizes secure hosting services to host the application and data, such as Rackspace and Amazon Web Services. Access to Qwire can only be granted by a project’s “superuser”, and there are many levels of security on each project.  Strong passwords are used to further restrict access to the application. Qwire does not host video.
