Quantel announce eQ HD-RGB option

Announced at NAB was a brand new option for Quantel's eQ editing/effects/grading/mastering system - full HD-RGB handling alongside its existing HD-YUV capability.
The release of the HD-RGB option coincides with a move in the mainstream HD market towards 4:4:4 image handling thanks to developments such as the Sony HDCAM-SR. HDCAM-SR uses only mild compression to store the full 4:4:4 HD-RGB signal data, providing the industry with a viable way of moving high quality, high resolution digital images around.
"At the high end, iQ has been able to handle HD-RGB for the past two years, but there is now a new emphasis on quality in mainstream HD production," reports Quantel Post Production Business Manager, Steve Owen. "This is eQ's territory, so introducing an HD-RGB option for eQ was a logical step. eQ guarantees that all the quality of HD-RGB is maintained unblemished right through the post production process, while still providing blistering performance."
eQ is the only postproduction system available that offers its users the choice of full-quality HD-RGB and full-quality HD-YUV signal handling. "This means that eQ users can choose the most appropriate format for each job rather than being forced down one path or the other by the technology," Owen concludes.
The HD-RGB option for eQ is available from May this year on new systems. In line with Quantel's policy of supporting its customers over the long term, it is also fully retrofittable to all existing eQs.
