Czech Television upgrades to Pablo Rio for color correction
Quantel's Pablo Rio system
  • --

State broadcaster Czech Television has upgraded one of its long-serving Quantel eQ finishing systems to a turnkey Pablo Rio 4K system. Pablo Rio will be used for high quality color and finishing of Czech Television’s episodic TV programs and local movie productions. The Czech Television network includes channels, CT 1, CT 2, CT 24, CT sport, CT :D, and CT art.

Pablo Rio is Quantel’s high quality color and finishing system that provides productive post workflow. Pablo Rio runs on high performance PC hardware and exploits NVIDIA Maximus multi-GPU technology to deliver true interactivity and maximum productivity, with realtime performance at 4K 60p and beyond. Pablo Rio is available as software only and as a range of Quantel-backed turnkey systems.

Ivo Ferkl, Czech TV technical director, said, “The system will provide us with future-proof technology, not just for HD services, but at 4K and beyond.”

Martin Mulligan, Quantel sales director, said, “Czech TV and Quantel have had a long-standing relationship since the mid-1990s so we are delighted they have once again chosen to make such a significant investment in our post technology as they look ahead to a 4K future.”
