France 3 is using a Quantel HD/multi-resolution Paintbox gQ for news production and close-to-air applications. Arte, the Franco-German cultural channel, uses the multi-resolution Paintbox gQ.

The latest-generation of Quantel technology has been adopted by all five of France’s free terrestrial channels for their transition to multi-format, multi-resolution and high-definition production and broadcasting.

The public-service network France 3 acquired an HD/multi-resolution Paintbox gQ for use in news production and close-to-air applications. Arte, the Franco-German cultural channel, opted for the multi-resolution Paintbox gQ.

M6, France’s youth-oriented terrestrial broadcaster, purchased an eQ for their on-air promotions and station identification department, and to develop their transition to HD. Private channel TF1, France’s (and Europe’s) free terrestrial broadcaster, ordered a series of new systems, including two Paintbox gQs and three QPaintbox software packages for offline work. TF1 will use its Paintbox systems as the core of its graphics creation department for its news operations.

France 2, France’s public broadcaster, ordered a Paintbox for use in its news programing and other close-to-air applications.
