NEWBURY, UK — Quantel (www.quntel.com) has released Pablo PA, the company's first standalone software-only product. Initially introduced at last year’s IBC show, Pablo PA is designed to help Quantel customers get the maximum value out of their high-end eQ, iQ or Pablo suites by handling conforms, preparation and workflow. This frees up the main suite for client-focused work.
As a standalone system, Pablo PA also offers facilities that don't currently own Quantel systems a low-cost way to benefit from Quantel's higher-end tools. The software has all the Pablo V5 color, multi-layer timeline effects, import, export, archive and conform tools, as well as the Stereo3D toolset. It also supports Red and DPX soft mount of third-party storage for instant access to media, and will handle conform verification, Red shot selection and live debayering, as well as file I/O. When work is complete, only the decisions performed on Pablo PA need to be transferred to an eQ, iQ or Pablo, saving time that would otherwise be spent moving media.
Quantel is offering Pablo PA on a 30-day trial basis.
