(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 6, 2014) Quantel showed the latest software release for its Pablo Rio high quality color and finishing system at NAB 2014. This is the fifth new feature release since IBC 2013 - just seven months ago - and adds yet more capabilities to the system's already rich toolset.
The new software ensures that Pablo Rio continues to set the pace in file-based post production pipelines with support for yet more file formats, including 4K XAVC export and DCP import as well as the latest RED SDK.
The new software also supports conform of Avid effects. This new facility greatly speeds the transition from Avid offline to Pablo Rio 4K finishing and color correction. For example if the Avid editor has used a DVE to resize a clip, the metadata for the DVE move comes across to Pablo Rio with the media, so the clip is automatically resized when it is conformed in Pablo Rio using the 4K media.
The Pablo Rio toolset also gets a major boost with Optical Flow slow motion. Optical Flow uses advanced motion estimation techniques to produce smoother, higher quality slow or fast motion.
The new software also features many additional improvements that increase flexibility and performance. These include: audio in MLT, AVCHD softmount, tracker homography, better text handling, faster shape creation, wireframe updates and better subtitling tools.
"The momentum continues to build for Pablo Rio. This raft of new developments will maintain Pablo Rio's pre-eminent position as the color and finishing system of choice for 4K and beyond," said Steve Owen, Quantel Marketing Director.
