IP Routing - 10 facts you need to know

IP routing promises to deliver new levels of flexibility, scalability and connectivity - but making the wrong choices now could be expensive. Our short guide lays out the facts you need to know.

Off-the-shelf IP Routing Switchers in the Hybrid IP/SDI Television Broadcast Environment

This White paper investigates the arguments for moving to IP routing and the possibilities this can open up for media organizations. What are the potential benefits? Off the shelf or dedicated hardware? Is a hybrid environment viable to enable a transition over time, or is a complete lift-out and refit required? Is clean switching necessary or even desirable in some cases? Can compression play a role? What are the cost implications? Read on for the full picture on IP routing.

Genetic Engineering 2 - a shared workflow infrastructure for multi-suite, high resolution post production

The need for teamworking in high quality post continues to grow as deadlines get shorter and post budgets continue to shrink. Post production houses need to be able to utilize all of their resources to the fullest possible extent to create the maximum amount of client-facing (and so billable) time from each and every system and person.Genetic Engineering 2 delivers on all fronts.

What is a video server and why do I need one

The benefits of Edge Browse in an Enterprise sQ system

The rapid move from video ingest to file-based transfers is bringing new benefits and efficiencies to broadcast systems. This brief paper outlines some changes in design and workflow assumptions in order to make the most out of new product features, like Edge Browse.

The Internet of Frames

The Internet of Frames has the power to do for stored media what Google and other search engines have done for the internet. That is, provide an index of all media assets owned by an organisation and create references to them which are independent of their location. Just as Google allows us to type in random words and return matches which may be stored on any server in the world, so Quantel users will be able to do the same with stored media.

Stream-based workflows for agile content creation

Stream-based workflows are emerging as a natural evolution of file-based workflows, providing increased agility and flexibility for content creation teams by bringing together the advantages of both legacy video workflows and file-based workflows. This white paper looks at the history of video and file-based workflows and what they have taught us, and discusses the benefits that a stream-based approach can offer our industry.

Building a shared infrastructure for high-end post

This paper describes how Quantel is re-engineering Genetic Engineering for the COTS post world. It covers the technical challenges involved, the new requirements for post today and introduces the architecture of the new Genetic Engineering 2.

Audio Loudness

This whitepaper introduces the subject of audio loudness and outlines how Quantel’s integration with the NUGEN VisLM Loudness Meter enables users to manage loudness across an edited timeline, ensuring compliance with local regulations.

Working with files from the Sony F65 Camera

The Sony F65 is one of the new high resolution and high dynamic range cameras that are replacing film for theatrical production and also finding applications in broadcast. In addition to conventional video outputs the F65 supports a complete file-based workflow. This Application Note details the workflow and options for working with F65 images in the Quantel Pablo Rio V2.0 environment.

An introduction to ACES on Quantel

The Academy Color Encoding Specification (ACES) is an initiative from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (AMPAS) that delivers a standard, future-proof color space. ACES enables consistent color rendition in pipelines including any combination of ACES-compliant cameras, processing and display devices both now and in the future. This White Paper introduces ACES and details how Pablo supports ACES and integrates into ACES pipelines.
