(Newbury, United Kingdom--January 23, 2014) Quantel announced today that sales of its Pablo Rio high quality color and finishing system in its first year of release have grown the company's sales into the post production market by 50%.
"Pablo Rio proves that quality still has value in the world of post production," said Steve Owen, Quantel Marketing Director. "That means quality in the widest sense - technical, editorial and creative. It shows that when a business can deliver quality for the right budget then customers really value that capability. And that is why Pablo Rio is being chosen by so many users across movie, drama and commercials post production.
"70% of the systems we have sold have been manufacturer-backed turnkey, the remainder software-only; Pablo Rio is unique in offering customers this choice," Owen continued. "And with Genetic Engineering 2, we're bringing a new era of productive teamworking to multi-resolution post.
