NEWBURY, ENGLAND - BBC Post Production has expanded its high definition offerings with the recent addition of an eQ system from Quantel, here. The new HD nonlinear editor will be used for providing conforming, grading and online processes for international HD programs.
Quantel's eQ is equipped with the Qcolor in-context color grading option allowing editors and directors to make color grading decisions interactively as part of the editing and finishing process.
In addition to being used on HD programming, the new eQ is also designed to handle standard definition output, making it useful in BBC's day-to-day operations. Its Resolution Co-existence capabilities allow 1080/24p, SD and DV content to all appear in the same timeline without the need to render.
