Quantel and Snell at CabSat2015
4K 60p production and post workflows
A complete 4K 60p production workflow is on show at Cabsat, built around the Sirius 800 router and the brand new Kahuna 9600 switcher, which includes up to 24 M/Es and 48 keyers. Sirius 800 is an enterprise level, multi-format router that can simultaneously handle SD, HD, 1080i and 4K 60p signals, and is routing sources for the Kahuna 9600 switcher. The switcher is driven by the revolutionary Maverik modular control surface that can be tailored to space and the TD’s requirements. Pablo Rio is providing one of the 4K 60p sources to the Kahuna and will also be demonstrating realtime color correction and finishing at 4K 60p. Visitors can see all the latest features and facilities, including Flow Motion motion-estimated speed changing, Long GOP XAVC, Apple ProRes 4444 XQ, support for the latest Sony and ARRI SDKs and AS-11/DPP.
Also on show is LiveTouch, Quantel’s brand new studio sports highlighting system. LiveTouch is a scalable system capable of supporting productions in several studios to maximize ROI. Uniquely, LiveTouch offers bidirectional editor integration making it faster and easier to integrate editing and highlights operations. In developing the LiveTouch panel, Quantel has consulted extensively with sports broadcasters and their on-air operators to ensure that it exactly meets the rigorous needs of live production.
