The QuantelTM name has been synonymous with innovation and excellence in post-production since the birth of digital systems. Quantel Rio is the latest name in that proud line – delivering stunning images at any and every resolution, color space and framerate – whatever today’s rapidly-changing industry throws at it. Quantel Rio has the power to handle the whole job interactively through its comprehensive online editing, color correction and finishing toolset.
Whatever the job, Quantel Rio blends quality and creativity in a package that delivers the productivity needed to succeed in movie and TV finishing, getting the whole job done efficiently and without creative limits.
Quantel Rio delivers the ultimate productive post workflow. Thanks to its realtime performance, its complete, integrated toolset that keeps the whole job in the suite, and full integration into today’s file-based workflows, Quantel Rio can handle everything you require from a finishing system – interactively and in realtime, making it the natural choice for client-attended sessions.
To achieve this performance, Quantel Rio runs on enterprise PC hardware that exploits the latest NVIDIA Maximus multi-GPU technology to deliver interactive, realtime working even at 8K 60p.
With native colorspaces stored on disk, Quantel Rio handles Wide Color Gamut (WCG) and HDR grading utilizing a range of transfer curves. Its 32-bit full-float processing provides the best quality results with the highest precision color reproduction output in a range of colorspaces, including REC 2020, ACES, DCI-P3 and REC 709.
Quantel Rio is available in a choice of three turnkey configurations – 2K, 4K and 8K and two software-only options – 4K and the Rio Assist workflow partner for prep, conform and pre-vis.
The Rio Connect™ collaborative workflow engine instantly solves facility scheduling challenges by enabling media sharing between up to eight Quantel Rio systems.
Rio Assist™ is a cost-effective, software-only preparation, conform and pre-vis system for file-based editorial, online finishing and color correction. Rio Assist’s powerful toolset handles all your backroom jobs quickly and efficiently, enabling your customer-attended Quantel Rio sessions to be even more productive.
Quantel Rio supports a wide range of data formats alongside wide color gamut and HDR. These include: OpenEXR, RED HDRx, Apple ProRes 422, Sony F55/65, Arri RAW, Canon, Phantom, Silicon Image, Blackmagic Cinema DNG, Sony XAVC and GoPro.
There is a choice of two control panels - Neo and its compact counterpart, Neo Nano. Both provide natural heads-up control of color and seamless interaction with Quantel Rio's comprehensive grading software.
The Neo Panel provides the ultimate correction in color control. It's simple and uncluttered layout gives fast access to Quantel Rio's comprehensive grading toolset.
The all-in-one design looks great on grading suite, with the OLED displays and EL-illuminated buttons allows you to find all your functions and presets, setting and controls at a glance.
The Neo Panel can even be configured for left or right-handed use, but swapping over the secondary and transport control panels.
