PAY Studio Goes 4K And Stereo3D With Quantel

Leading Warsaw-based post house PAY Studio has upgraded its Pablo with 4K, Stereo3D and the Neo panel.
The system has immediately been put into action finishing Poland's first major 3D movie Battle of Warsaw.
Monika Jakutowicz, PAY Studio colourist and 3D artist, said: "Our Pablo system has been at the heart of our workflow for several years now, working principally on commercials, major TV series and movies for the Polish market. Upgrading the system to 4K and Stereo3D operation means that we can carry out the highest quality digital intermediates and colour correction for 2D movies. And it also enables us to break into the exciting new 3D movie business, as our work on Jerzy Hoffman's Battle of Warsaw illustrates - we did the entire colour correction and Stereo3D post on the Pablo, as well as the titles."
Jakutowicz continued: "We looked at other options for stereoscopic work, but there is nothing to match the Pablo's comprehensive S3D workflow. It's got all the colour and other finishing tools we need in one room, a brilliant interface in the Neo panel and a good Stereo3D toolset that Quantel continues to develop. We wouldn't have been able to complete Battle of Warsaw in the short timescale required without Pablo. The ability to grade the left and right eyes in parallel and the new stereo balancing and fixing tools were particularly useful."
Jakutowicz concluded: "We have moved early into the Stereo3D market because we think it will continue to grow rapidly as a movie, and later, TV format; it's just a matter of time, reducing the costs of S3D production and in the case of TV, waiting for consumers to make the next move to 3D-enabled TVs. Wherever the market moves, PAY Studio will be at the forefront, continuing to develop and exploit all the latest technologies."
