Quantel’s post workflow assist station now even more productive and better connected
Quantel demonstrated new developments for its Pablo PA conform, preparation and workflow software – CUDA GPU processing, a full frame S3D-capable output and Genetic Engineering connectivity.
Pablo PA now supports nVidia Quadro graphics cards, and benefits from CUDA GPU processing. CUDA support enables new levels of interactivity and even realtime playback of Stereo3D content.
Pablo PA also now supports dual monitor operation with a Quadro graphics card. The second monitor provides full frame picture display including side-by-side for realtime display of S3D media.
Genetic Engineering connectivity enables Pablo PA to work on Quantel’s GenePool shared storage. Pablo PA can look directly into the GenePool via Sam, work on a clip and publish the results back. New frames can be rendered onto the Pablo PA and published back into the GenePool for other GenePool-connected systems to access. Alternatively the Pablo PA can publish clips with settings ready for other Quantel systems to render.
Shot selection and conform verification on soft mounted media can also be handled on Pablo PA, and the result published to the GenePool, localising media as required.
“Pablo PA is already popular with Quantel customers,” said Steve Owen, Quantel Director of Marketing. “These new developments address the top three requests we’ve had from our users and enable Pablo PA to become an even more productive and capable assist system.”
