Video Communications, Incorporated (VCI), supplier of integrated media solutions to the broadcast and cable industry, announced that Firestone Communications, Inc. selected its flagship product, STARS II+, as their key business operations system for the Q Television Network.

Firestone manages the daily operations including master control and traffic for many cable networks while their clients run the content and scheduling functions. VCI�s STARS II + is currently being used to run these processes for Firestone�s clients such as Sorpresa!, �Because of the successful relationship that we have built with VCI, there is a comfort zone that we are able to relay to our new clients. Not only is STARS II+ easy to use but our experience with the training has been very successful and ahead of schedule,� stated Leonard Firestone, CEO of Firestone Communications.

The installation of STARS II+ was completed at Q Television Network in mid November. Christopher Ruggles, Traffic Manager for Q Television Network commented, �A couple weeks before VCI started the on-site training, I was able to review the user manual. Being new to the industry, I had no idea what I was getting myself into as the Traffic Manager. VCI�s training was so comprehensive that all the elements I had read about in the manual fell into place and made sense. It was so straightforward and easy.�

VCI was selected from three competing vendors because they offered a better solution including training, pricing, and customer service. �VCI has a solid product that easily produces affidavits, discrepancy reports, and skim avails. Their customer service is very responsive 24/7,� said Mr. Firestone.

�Our experience at VCI has allowed us to build a robust and reliable product that supports our clients and provides them with a modern, up-to-date and cost effective solution,� said W. Lowell Putnam, President and CEO of VCI.
