Creating the look for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo H ollywood post house Light Iron put its two Quantel Pablo color correction systems to the ultimate test in carrying out the 4K DI for David Fincher’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Dragon Tattoo is among the largest 4K movies ever delivered: at 2 hours and 38 minutes, the final DI consists of almost 250,000 frames of 45 megabytes each. Light Iron’s Pablos proved more than equal to the task, helping to produce an ‘elegantly cinematic’* result. Dragon Tattoo is 4K plus and the Pablo was challenged to perform outside of its comfort zone. It did so without a problem.” www.quantel.com 19 Pixel Power Channel Masters F ollowing the successful launch of its integrated playout solution ChannelMaster  at IBC 2011, Pixel Power, the innovative supplier of broadcast playout solutions with integrated graphics, has announced that SBS Broadcasting Networks is leading the way with the purchase of 19 ChannelMaster systems.
