“We have been working with Quantel eQ for a while and have always been impressed with the speed, agility and quality of Quantel systems,” said Jean-Luc Desmond, studio director at France Télévisions signature. “Upgrading to Pablo Rio opens up a new world of post production at France Télévisions, offering high performance and a very impressive interactive colour and finishing toolset. We work on a variety of projects here in Nancy, including 2D/3D tracking, digital effects, image restoration and graphic design, so we needed a system that was flexible with a fast and intuitive workflow – Pablo Rio ticked all the boxes.”
Quantel sales director, Martin Mulligan, said, “France Télévisions has been a valued Quantel customer for many years and we are delighted that they once again have chosen Quantel to meet all their post-production needs.”
