Quantel today released Pablo PA, its first software only product.

The Newbury-based firm said the standalone software would help Quantel customers get the most out of their eQ, iQ or Pablo suites by handling conforms, preparation and workflow, allowing the main suite to concentrate on client-focused work.

Pablo PA features the Pablo V5 colour, multi-layer timeline effects, import, export, archive and conform tools, as well as a Stereo 3D toolset.

It also supports RED and DPX soft mount of third party storage for access to media and will handle conform verification, RED shot selection and live delayering.
