Quantel has released new software for its eQ, iQ and Pablo systems that, amongst other things, includes support for the Red Rocket accelerator board.

The integration will allow Quantel users with Rocket to benefit from quicker loading and conform times.

Red Rocket was made available for the first time in August. Quantel claims to be the first manufacturer to release software that supports it.

“The fact that we have brought the benefits of the Red Rocket to Quantel users in such a short timescale is just another example of how focused Quantel is on its customers’ needs and the fantastic speed with which our engineers are able to react to new technologies,” said Steve Owen, Quantel marketing director.

Version 4.1 rev 6 also includes Cubebuilder, which enables Pablo users to build, manipulate and apply 3D Look-up Tables (LUTs) entirely within Pablo and new file export modes simplify Blu-ray and DVD generation.
