Televisa gets Quantel upgrade10 October 2013
Mexico-city based broadcaster, Televisa, has upgraded its Quantel Enterprise sQ news production system and has also purchased a Pablo Rio colour and finishing system for its Creatividad Digital promotions production department.
Televisa is the world’s most-viewed Spanish language programming producer. Its Enterprise sQ upgrade will bring the latest V5 software to its news operation, enabling the broadcaster to benefit from 64-bit and Windows 7 and the latest features introduced by Quantel, including faster and more flexible editing tools and loudness metering, and enhanced file-based workflows.
The purchase of the Pablo Rio finishing system will boost promotions production and will also be at the heart of Televisa’s movement into 4K production. The new ‘deliver to sQ’ feature will enable content created on Pablo Rio to be automatically transferred into Televisa’s Enterprise sQ system at HD resolution, ready for air.
“Our Quantel system is very robust and continues to meet all our news production requirements,” said Elias Rodriguez, Televisa director general of operations. “We are also happy that Quantel continues to develop the system so that we can take advantage of all the latest file and workflow developments across our news operation. The Pablo Rio system, with its all-in-one colour and finishing capabilities, will enhance our promotions productivity and also give us a platform to move into 4K production.”
“Televisa is one of the world’s most forward-looking broadcasters, and we’re delighted that they continue to rely on Quantel to maintain their competitive advantage,” said Ray Cross, Quantel CEO.
