Newbury, England – Quantel has released a new software version for Pablo Rio that unleashes the full power of its multi-GPU architecture and AJA Corvid Ultra integration. Pablo Rio’s new software delivers “simply phenomenal” performance and adds yet more capabilities to its unique integrated color and finishing toolset.
Running the new software, a Pablo Rio equipped with three NVIDIA Tesla Kepler K20 GPUs will deliver over 20 layers of color correction at 4K at full resolution in realtime, or around 50 at 2K – performance unique in the market today. Adding the AJA Corvid Ultra enables that power to deliver realtime 4K 60fps – working with and monitoring the full quality 4K 60fps images live in the suite.
Quantel has also boosted the Pablo Rio toolset, adding support for Apple(r) ProRes soft mount, improvements to the mocha planar tracker, realtime playback of soft mounted Sony F65 files and support for the NUGEN(r) VisLM audio loudness monitoring plug-in.
“The performance of a fully configured Pablo Rio running the latest software really has to be seen to be believed – it is simply phenomenal,” said Quantel Marketing Director, Steve Owen. “We also took the opportunity to add a number of new features requested by our users to further improve the range of work that can benefit from Pablo Rio’s power and toolset. This is just another step in exploiting the almost limitless potential of this new post platform.”
Version 2.0 rev3 software for Pablo Rio is available now to new customers and as a free upgrade to all existing users.
