Innovative new technologies on show
Quantel will be showing its range of post, DI and broadcast systems on its new, more environmentally friendly stand at IBC 2009. The emphasis is firmly on innovative new technologies that create better workflows, contain costs and streamline production timescales.
Get Real – Go Virtual
At IBC we’ll be introducing virtualisation and showcasing its benefits for broadcast file-based workflows. Virtual files eliminate typical file-based workflow issues such as latency and managing multiple versions and help file-based operation achieve its full potential. Our new virtualisation technology makes the impossible possible.
Visitors are encouraged to come and see what we mean in our broadcast theatre on the stand. To be sure of being able to get to see it, broadcasters should drop firstname.lastname@example.org an email with their preferred day and time and we’ll reserve and confirm their seat right away.
Final Cut Pro on Quantel
Now broadcasters can have the same fast Quantel sQ Server workflow with Final Cut Pro editors. And there are absolutely no compromises on speed or quality. This exciting new development is the first application of our new virtualisation technology and is released at the show. Final Cut Pro editors can be added to existing systems giving Quantel customers even more choice over how they benefit from the fast turnaround sQ workflow.
Quantel Stereo3D systems are leading the way in Stereo3D post production. At IBC we’ll be showcasing Stereo3D work already done on Quantel systems. Visitors will be able to see how iQ and Pablo are allowing post facilities to make money from Stereo3D today. We’ll also be showing how the advanced Stereo3D analysis and correction tools in the 3ality Digital SIP2100 can boost post productivity even further.
New Pablo software
The world’s most advanced color correction and finishing system continues to get even better with a raft of improvements throughout the system including the new time and money-saving Cubebuilder feature.
We’re so excited about virtualisation that, while we can’t give a way an sQ server, we do have a great example of virtualisation on the stand from another field that we know visitors will want – and one lucky visitor to the stand will win it!
“As well as providing us with the opportunity to meet up with so many of our customers face to face at the show, we’re also concentrating on demonstrating to them how Quantel’s innovative approach to solving their issues can help them extract maximum value from all of their resources,” said Steve Owen, Quantel Director of Marketing.
