The Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), Korea’s national public broadcaster that owns or operates 18 regional TV stations and 11 overseas bureaus, has purchased two Quantel Pablo Neo 2K color-correction and finishing systems.
One Pablo will be used by the KBS computer graphics division for color correction, stereoscopic 3-D manipulation and mastering of non-fiction programming such as documentaries. The second system is for the TV drama special effects team at KBS Mediatech, where it will be handling color correction on the high-profile dramas for which KBS is renowned.
Kim Jae-Sang, a colorist at KBS, said the enhanced v5 stereo toolset is optimal for stereo 3-D finishing work. In addition, the new v5 software enables uncommitted, in-context grading across multiple layers as well as real-time playback and fast rendering.
