Quantel Appoints Annex Pro as Canadian Postproduction Systems Reseller


Quantel announced that it has appointed Vancouver-based Annex Pro as the Canadian reseller of its Pablo Rio postproduction systems. Pablo Rio can handle everything demanded of a modern post facility, including color correction, editing, effects, color grading, finishing and deliverables, running at speeds up to 4K 60 fps.

Annex Pro is a Vancouver-based reseller of software, hardware and IT infrastructure for the media and entertainment industry, offering pre-sales research and advice, proof-of-concept evaluations, pre- and post-sales technical support, trouble-shooting and custom training. Annex Pro has been consulting, training and supporting the creation of visual effects, animation, game, TV and films since its creation in 1983.

“To say that we are thrilled to represent Quantel here in Western Canada would be an understatement,” said Kerry Corlett, president and founder of Annex Pro. “Our focus on customer service and technical expertise, pairs nicely with Quantel’s decades of experience with digital production equipment. We look forward to working with the Quantel team to bring their innovative solutions to our customers.”

“Annex Pro has already secured its first Pablo Rio order and has many others in the pipeline,” said Quantel sales director, Martin Mulligan. “We are very excited for our future with the team. Their experience and high quality research and advice are great assets in helping to further build Quantel’s presence in the Canadian post industry.”

Vicon Introduces Mobile Mocap at SIGGRAPH

Motion capture systems developer Vicon is previewing a futuristic new “Mobile Mocap” technology at SIGGRAPH 2011 in Vancouver. Moving mocap out of the lab and into the field, Vicon's Mobile Mocap system taps several new technologies, many years in the making. At the heart of Mobile Mocap is a very small lipstick-sized camera that enables less obtrusive, more accurate facial animation data. The new cameras capture 720p (1280X720) footage at 60 frames per second. In addition, a powerful processing unit synchronizes, stores, and wirelessly transmits the data, all in a tiny wearable design.
