(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 16, 2013) Quantel unveiled a new development that enables content created on Quantel's Pablo Rio high-end color and finishing system to be delivered to Enterprise sQ fast-turnaround broadcast production systems using Quantel's QTube technology. Today QTube is about far more than remote operations; QTube has grown into a technology that connects different geographies and different systems together.
The development allows typical high-end content such as promos, features and commercials to be created on Pablo Rio at anything up to 4K and delivered to Enterprise sQ quickly and easily. QTube eliminates the need for any intermediate storage, lowering cost and simplifying management.
To transfer media, the Pablo Rio user simply chooses the clip and selects 'Deliver to sQ'. The QTube Transformer handles format conversion and encoding to the appropriate server compression scheme automatically.
"Many broadcasters like to create flagship content at 2K or 4K because it quite simply looks better at HD than media created in HD," said Steve Owen. "This workflow allows them to create that high-end content on Pablo Rio and deliver it into the Enterprise sQ HD production system ready to go to air. It's also another great example of how QTube connects workflows."
