Soho-based post facility, The Look has purchased a second Quantel Pablo Rio 4K high quality color and finishing system. The Pablo Rio will operate alongside the facility’s existing Pablo Rio 4K and Pablo systems to form the backbone of its longform and trailer work. In 2014, the facility worked on over 40 cinema trailers, eight feature films, TV drama Quirke for BBC One, as well as commercials for brands such as Hiscox and Google.

The Look’s owner and senior colorist, Thomas Urbye said, “The Quantel Pablo Rio is still the most powerful all-rounder available. It has an excellent grading toolset and panel, and also an advanced, easy-to-use multi-layer timeline, support for Avid effects and ProRes and DCP exports. It’s the fastest most interactive system for an operator to use when client attended, especially with its huge GPU horsepower. Most importantly, we have no need to go into another system to deliver a film or drama.”

Pablo Rio is Quantel’s high quality color and finishing system. Pablo Rio runs on high performance PC hardware and exploits NVIDIA Maximus multi-GPU technology to deliver realtime performance at 4K 60P. Pablo Rio is available as software only and as a range of Quantel-backed turnkey systems.

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.
