Nashville Based Forward Adds Two Pablo Rios


Nashville-based postproduction facility, Forward has purchased two Quantel Pablo Rio color and finishing systems to provide an advanced postproduction workflow for its clients.

Launched by director Shaun Silva, the company opened its doors in 2012 equipped with Quantel iQ and Pablo finishing suites. Forward has since worked on music videos for leading country music artists including Luke Bryan, Kenny Chesney and Kacey Musgrove, as well as the Emmy-nominated ESPN 30 for 30 documentary film, The Irrelevant Giant.

Pablo Rio is Quantel’s high quality color and finishing system that provides a highly productive workflow for 2D and S3D projects. Pablo Rio runs on high-performance PC hardware and exploits NVIDIA Maximus multi-GPU technology to deliver interactivity and productivity. Pablo Rio is available as software only or on a range of Quantel turnkey systems.

“The Pablo Rio is a culmination of Quantel listening to its customers,” said Forward chief engineer Jim Harvath. “It is very rewarding to see specific items for our needs make it into a product. The flexibility of configuring the Pablo Rio hardware allows us to ‘right size’ our hardware to what our current workflow demands are. Plus, knowing that we can expand instantly with off the shelf parts allows us to stay competitive and grow as necessary, when we’re ready.”
