Quantel Pablo Rio 2KO – affordable colour grading Joseph Fiber Solutions – 4K Replay Caddie Looking for a “cost-effective and painless way” to incorporate UltraHD into a sport production environment? Check out this innovation from Joseph Fiber Solutions (JFS). A multifarious acquisition tool it is based around the Sony PMW-F55 4K camera with a Fujinon PL Series zoom lens plus JFS’ own Studio Caddie-4K, a Dell computer and both AJA’s Corvid Ultra high-frame-rate chassis and its Ki Pro Quad file-based recorder. The combination provides for 4K capture, replay, archiving, and live playout at what JFS insists will be “half the cost of other systems.” Avid - S6 control surface 2KO We talked h Steve wit Owen from C, IB Quantel at h it here. watc Colour grading and finishing for the budget-conscious is nothing new. But you don’t necessarily expect if from Quantel, once the Rolls Royce of the FX and grading world. To hit the perceived market sweet spot, Pablo Rio 2KO sits on a cheaper PC platform than its older brother, the Pablo Rio, but has the same toolset and workflow. It is aimed squarely at broadcasters and post houses that work as far up as 2K and HD 3D but won’t need to go near 4K. As with all Pablo Rio models, Pablo Rio 2KO is available as a fully blown system including storage, video I/O and the full Pablo Rio toolset, or as software only. Using the same core as an ICON or a System 5 product, the Avid S6 console can control multiple Pro Tools and other EUCON-enabled DAWs (including Logic Pro and Nuendo) over an Ethernet connection. But most importantly, it is modular, ie, you can customize to your own requirements as you go along. Pre-configured S6 M10 or S6 M40 surfaces are available with the required faders, knobs, etc. already provided or, with S6 M40, further personalized with different channel control combinations. AMPAS - Colour predictor app TSL Products - The Egg Here’s an idea that every competitor will want to poach. The Egg from TSL Products is a single-person QC unit for monitoring 5.1 surround sound and HD video. Providing an acoustically isolated environment for the operator, the ovoid sit-in device has a touch screen display that allows for video playback, router control, audio control, comms integration and video server control. g See the Eg in action at IBC The Science and Technology Council of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) is developing an iPad app. That is right. You read that correctly. Named the Academy Colour Predictor, and soon entering beta, it is being introduced to help filmmakers understand how key cinematography elements - lights, camera, filters, and subject matter – interact with one another. Users can change any of the selected parameters to instantly visualise rendering differences and compare different combinations. Vision Research - Phantom Flex4K camera The Phantom Flex4K digital cinema camera can deliver 1000 frames per second high-speed video at - yes you guessed it - 4K resolution (4096x2160) and twice that in HD. The super 35mm sensor shooter outputs RAW images and includes hot-swappable Phantom CineMag IV storage plus 3G HD-SDI video outputs. TV-BAY MAGAZINE: ISSUE 82 OCTOBER 2013 | 37
