Park Road Post Production Purchases Neo

Park Road Post Production, New Zealand's world-class full service post facility, has purchased one of Quantel's new Neo control panels for the Quantel Pablo colour correction system that is the heart of its showpiece DI theatre.
The Neo panel will be brought straight into front line service to carry out the full DI on Peter Jackson's forthcoming film 'The Lovely Bones'. Three further full DI projects are already booked in before the year end, including Alex Proyas' feature 'Knowing', which is shot entirely on the RED camera.
Adam Scott, Head of DI at Park Road, is enthused with Neo, saying: "It's a beautiful piece of kit - the clients will love it. Neo will make the whole colour grading process more time-efficient, streamlined and faster too. Having all the colour tools instantly available just one touch away makes this a true colourist control surface - and it will look extremely impressive in our 'hero' DI theatre. It's all about improving the client experience and Neo is central to that."
Scott first saw Neo at NAB 2008 and was immediately taken with it. He said: "Quantel has obviously listened closely to colourists' feedback during its development. The Park Road DI workflow is already extremely slick, being based around two Pablos on a Genetic Engineering workflow backbone. Neo is a natural next step in further improving our efficiency. DoPs demand speed and flexibility and with Neo we can deliver even more."
Park Road Post Production, set up the acclaimed filmmaker Peter Jackson, is founded on the principle of delivering no-compromise post production to filmmakers. Further information is available at:
