(Newbury, UK--October 23, 2009) Quantel has just released a new version of software for its eQ, iQ and Pablo systems which, among a number of other useful new features, also includes support for the RED Rocket accelerator board.|
RED Rocket only became available in August, and Quantel is the first manufacturer to release software that supports it, allowing Quantel users to benefit from the much reduced loading and conform times RED Rocket enables with RED-originated material.
"The fact that we have brought the benefits of the RED Rocket to Quantel users in such a short timescale is just another example of how focused Quantel is on its customers' needs and the fantastic speed with which our engineers are able to react to new technologies," said Steve Owen, Quantel Director of Marketing. "If it matters to our customers, then it matters to us!"
The new software release - V4.1rev6 - isn't just about RED Rocket support. It also includes the Cubebuilder, which enables Pablo users to build, manipulate and apply 3D Look-up Tables (LUTs) entirely within Pablo, and many other new facilities and features, including:
- Process re-ordering in multi-layer timeline effects - more flexibility in effects creation
- Nine new blend modes - more creative options
- New and improved conform and file handling features - more efficient workflow means more time for creative work
- New file export modes simplify Blu-ray and DVD generation
