(Newbury, United Kingdom--January 21, 2014) Quantel today announced the launch of Genetic Engineering 2. GE2 is Quantel's second generation shared storage solution for post that delivers new levels of flexibility, performance and productivity for Quantel Pablo Rio color and finishing system users. The original Genetic Engineering transformed the efficiency of many post houses; GE2 will do the same for today's multi-resolution post world.
GE2 revolutionizes post workflow - it enables instant sharing of high resolution jobs between suites giving users total flexibility to move jobs at a moment's notice. Crucially each GE2 connected Pablo Rio has guaranteed realtime performance whatever the other suites are doing - even at 4K.
GE2 is great for facility scheduling as it makes it possible to take on short notice jobs. It allows multiple suites to teamwork on tight deadline jobs and enables more suites to get involved when a job suddenly needs more resources.
GE2 enables up to four Pablo Rio systems to share the same GenePool storage. Third party systems can read and write to GenePool storage via the GenePool Gateway. Pablo PA also connects to the GenePool Gateway to handle back-office tasks, ensuring that the frontline Pablo Rio systems spend the maximum time on client-facing work.
There is a huge range of potential GE2 configurations, which means that GE2 systems can be tailored to meet every individual facility's workflow requirements. For example, the GenePool shared storage can range from 18TB to support a two-suite HD production requirement, to almost 400TB - more than enough for even multiple simultaneous 4K or 6K Red Dragon jobs.
"The number one issue facing post houses today is workflow, and Genetic Engineering 2 delivers the kind of flexibility and productivity they need to compete in a market where clients demand quality and speed in equal measure," said Quantel Sales Director, Martin Mulligan.
Genetic Engineering 2 is available now.
