Nashville — Post production facility Forward has purchased two Quantel Pablo Rio color and finishing systems, adding to its services.
Started by director Shaun Silva, Forward 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 color and finishing system that provides a streamlined workflow for 2D and stereo 3D projects. It runs on high-performance PC hardware and exploits Nvidia Maximus multi-GPU technology.
Chief engineer of Forward (@Forwardllc) Jim Harvath CSTE, says, “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.”
