(Newbury, United Kingdom--May 7, 2014) Nashville's state-of-the-art post production facility, FORWARD LLC, has purchased two Quantel Pablo Rio high quality color and finishing systems to provide the ultimate intuitive and innovative post production workflow for its clients.

Designed by award-winning director, Shaun Silva, FORWARD LLC opened its doors in 2012, equipped with Quantel iQ and Pablo finishing suites. FORWARD has since worked on music videos for leading country music artists including Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney and Kacey Musgrove, as well as the Emmy nominated ESPN 30 for 30 documentary film, "The Irrelevant Giant".

Pablo Rio is Quantel's high quality color and finishing system that provides the ultimate productive workflow for 2D and S3D projects. Pablo Rio runs on high performance PC hardware and exploits NVIDIA Maximus multi-GPU technology to deliver true interactivity and maximum productivity. Pablo Rio is available as software only and as a range of Quantel-backed turnkey systems.

Chief engineer of Forward, Jim Harvath CSTE, said, "The Pablo Rio is a culmination of Quantel listening to its customers. It is very rewarding to see specific items for our needs make it into a product. The flexibility of configuring the Pablo Rio hardware allows us to 'right size' our hardware to what our current workflow demands are. Plus, knowing that we can expand instantly with off the shelf parts allows us to stay competitive and grow as necessary, when we're ready."

Quantel Sales Director, Martin Mulligan, said, "FORWARD'S creative environment is widely acknowledged as one of the best in the industry and really raises the bar for post production in Nashville. Pablo Rio's unbeatable color and finishing toolset and immense power are great assets to FORWARD as they look ahead to a truly interactive future."
