(Newbury, UK--August 18, 2009) China's highly respected Beijing Film Academy has placed two orders with Quantel - one for its Film & TV Technology Department and a second for its Cinematography Department.
The Film & TV Technology Dept. has upgraded its Pablo to full 4K operation and doubled its storage, as well as massively increasing its processing power and speed with the addition of three Quantel media engines. The system has also been equipped with Quantel's award-winning Stereo3D technology and the recently-introduced soft-Sam option, which enables transparent access to the Pablo media store for third party systems.
The Cinematography Dept, already home to a Pablo HD system with Neo, has added an eQ finishing system and Genetic Engineering – an upgrade that will dramatically improve workflow and increase throughput.
Johnsen Yue, Quantel China General Manager, said, “The film market in China is growing significantly, and we are honoured that the prestigious Beijing Film Academy has once again chosen Quantel technology to give its students access to the market’s leading color correction, DI and post production technology.”
