Alchemist OD V2 debuts Adaptive Cadence Technology
V2 software for the Alchemist OD format and framerate converter and the Quasar OD format converter was showed for the first time at NAB 2015. V2 software makes it even easier to integrate Alchemist OD and Quasar OD into file-based workflows, and also introduces the revolutionary Adaptive Cadence Technology for Alchemist OD.
Quantel showed how to transition from today’s SDI world into the IP future without the cost and disruption of a complete refit. It’s all based around standard IT switches to deliver an agile, flexible infrastructure that works with the SDI routers and switchers you have today.
Pablo Rio is Quantel’s software high-end color and finishing system. It builds on the Pablo pedigree but runs on standard COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) hardware. Offering new levels of interactivity, Pablo Rio can handle everything demanded of a modern post facility – from high frame rate file-based media to multi-layer Stereo3D working. Pablo Rio is quite simply the best version of this software, ever.
It’s all about choice.
Central to Pablo Rio is choice; customers have complete freedom in how they specify and purchase their system. From software-only where the customer purchases their own hardware to a range of four fully-supported turnkey configurations that exploit the flexibility of the nVidia Maximus multi-GPU technology, Pablo Rio users can choose just the right system for their individual requirements. Similarly with storage: Pablo Rio will work with local, SAN, NAS or all in combination. Finally, users can choose video i/o or network-only connectivity. and Pablo Rio can grow with your business – it’s simple to add more GPUs, storage or i/o as your needs change.
