Beijing Film Academy Chooses Quantel Pablo Rio for S3D Animation
China’s highly prestigious Beijing Film Academy has purchased a Quantel Pablo Rio color correction and finishing system with a Neo Nano color panel.
The turnkey system will be used by the school’s animation department for the post-production of Stereo3D animation films. Beijing Film Academy has also purchased SynthIA, Quantel’s standalone software package that provides high quality S3D Interaxial adjustment in post.
Pablo Rio is Quantel’s high-quality color and finishing system that provides the ultimate productive workflow for 2D and S3D projects. Capable of handling 4K 60p in realtime, Pablo Rio runs on high performance PC hardware and exploits NVIDIA Maximus multi-GPU technology to deliver true interactivity and maximum productivity.
Mr Sun Lijun, VP at Beijing Film Academy, said, “We have had Quantel systems in house for many years and we are continually impressed with their speed, user-friendliness and high quality color, finishing and S3D toolsets. We are always looking to provide our students with the best post systems on the market and with Pablo Rio our students have the ultimate post-production workflow to maximise creativity and productivity.”
“We are honoured that the highly respected Beijing Film Academy has once again chosen Quantel technology for its students – some of the industry’s most promising creative talent – to develop high-quality S3D content,” said Quantel Sales Director, Martin Mulligan.
