More Choices and More flexibility for Quantel Users
(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 6, 2014) At NAB 2014 Quantel announced support for the AJA Io XT on its Marco field editor, and KONA 3G video card on its Pablo Rio color and finishing systems.
AJA Io XT will be supported for input and output on Marco in addition to AJA's T-TAP™ Thunderbolt™ adapter, enabling journalists and editors easily to exchange media with a professional SDI infrastructure - for example satellite or outside broadcast/remote trucks, or for direct recording from HD cameras.
Pablo Rio already supports the AJA Corvid Ultra, which delivers realtime 4K 60p. The addition of support for the AJA KONA 3G gives customers a wider choice of I/O infrastructure and will be particularly attractive to customers who currently require realtime 2K capability. The KONA 3G card is supported on software-only Pablo Rio 2K and 4K systems and 2KO turnkey systems.
"Since we first announced support for the AJA at NAB last year, we have shipped lots of turnkey 4K 60p Pablo Rio systems with the Corvid Ultra," said Quantel Marketing Director, Steve Owen. "Support for the AJA Io XT on Marco recognises that it's a file-based world out there - except when it's not! - and you need to move video around, efficiently. Support for the KONA 3G is simply a matter of giving our Pablo Rio customers more choice."
"Quantel has always been a standard-bearer in professional DI, and we're thrilled to work with them as a developer partner to extend even more flexible workflows to their incredibly powerful systems for editors, colorists and filmmakers," said Nick Rashby, President, AJA Video Systems.
