‘Revolution not evolution’ with Quantel at NAB 2012

At NAB 2012, Quantel will be unveiling two new software architectures: one for broadcast and one for post. A new broadcast architecture enables COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) storage to support fast turnaround workflows. It delivers instant access to years of online content. This software technology is open, standards-based and delivers ingest, editing and instant file delivery on a global scale. The new software Pablo delivers real choice to high-end post. Taking advantage of multi-GPU processing, the new Pablo will be available as both software-only and COTS-based turnkey systems in a range of configurations to match the requirements of post today. All systems are fully Stereo3D capable and support the Neo panel and the new Neo Nano panel that will be unveiled at NAB. They will also support new high frame-rate and productive Stereo3D finishing workflows. These new developments are fully backwards compatible with Quantel’s existing products, which also benefit from a raft of new developments at NAB. Quantel’s Enterprise sQ fast turnaround production system is at NAB with a comprehensive new user permissions and management system. New Orad graphics integration makes it beautifully simple to add Orad-produced graphics into the Quantel timeline. This tight integration between Quantel and Orad is a perfect example of the kind of interoperability that broadcasters require today. The file-based workflow capabilities of Enterprise sQ take another step forward with enhancements to sQ Fileflow that now provide a resilient, scalable and SOA file ingest/egress architecture. sQ Fileflow can both work out of the box and also be included in custom workflows via the new open API. The QTube is already in full swing, enabling broadcasters to view and edit live production content anywhere. At NAB, the focus is on making QTube Edit an even more flexible production tool. QTube Edit now supports disconnected operation, so users can edit packages together offline, and simply connect to the server (via the internet) to access content or upload locally produced work. QTube Edit is also now able to add effects into the timeline – dissolves, graphics, titles etc. without moving high-resolution media over the Internet. Remote effects are now practical for the first time. "The constant change in the content creation business demands innovative thinking," said Ray Cross, Quantel CEO. "At NAB we will be showing how our new products and technologies cut through the conventional to deliver a real revolution in what our customers can achieve." SL2415
