Pablo Rio is available as software only and as a range of Quantel-backed turnkey systems.

Czech TV Technical Director, Mr. Ivo Ferkl, said, "Pablo Rio's advanced color and finishing toolset is second to none, and together with its speed, performance and interactivity, it was the natural choice for us. The system will provide us with future-proof technology, not just for HD services, but at 4K and beyond."
