NAB 2012: new Pablo - a revolution in choice

For the first time customers have complete freedom to choose full specification software or turnkey systems


15 April 2012: Quantel launched new Pablo at NAB 2012. new Pablo is a software high-end color and finishing system that runs on standard COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) hardware. new Pablo opens up a revolution in choice - offering new freedom to customers in how they buy and specify their system. new Pablo is powerful, configurable and designed to integrate into modern Stereo3D and high frame-rate post pipelines.


Choices on new Pablo include:

  • Software-only or turnkey in a range of configurations
  • Storage architecture - local, SAN, NAS or combination
  • Number of GPUs
  • Video i/o or network
  • Neo, the new Neo Nano, or no color control panel


All configurations of new Pablo include the high-end Pablo 2D and S3D color and finishing toolset - the most comprehensive in the industry. It also supports ACES and RED HDRx alongside ARRI, Canon and F65 - and high frame-rates too.


new Pablo uses the latest nVidia Maximus multi-GPU technology to deliver blistering interactive performance. For example, new Pablo was demonstrated on the Quantel booth working interactively with RED EPIC 5K files at 48fps in Stereo3D.




Also introduced at NAB with the new Pablo is the Neo Nano compact color panel, ideal for applications outside the main suite. Neo Nano is also supported by Quantel's Qube broadcast craft editor.


"new Pablo is all about giving our customers real choice in specifying their system to exactly match their business needs today, with complete freedom to grow as their requirements change," said Steve Owen, Quantel Marketing Director. "It takes advantage of the latest GPU technologies to deliver stunning performance and throughput. Its comprehensive, proven 2D and S3D toolset speeds workflow further by minimising time-consuming movement of high resolution media. new Pablo is an exciting new choice for post."
