Quantel's Stereo3D Technology Wins 'Innovation Of The Year' At The Producción Professional Awards

Quantel has announced that its Stereo3D technology has received the Innovation of the Year Award from Producción Professional, one of Spain's - and Europe's - leading industry publications. The Award was collected by Rafael Zapardiel, Quantel Spain Senior Sales Manager.
2008 is the sixth year of the Producción Professional Awards, which recognise the most important products and innovations in the Iberian market. The jury that judges the submissions comprises the ultimate in independent industry specialists because it comprises all the readers of the magazine. From a final shortlist of three products chosen by the readers, a panel of experts drawn from the industry then votes on the eventual winner.
João Martins - International Editor of Producción Professional (Spain, Portugal, Brasil and Latin America), said: "Quantel 3D Stereoscopic technology was on everybody's mind, the night the jury got together to vote. After IBC2008, it was clear that this is an industry-changing development, highly motivating for all creative minds. In our IBC2008 report, we wrote 'Quantel's demonstration with 3ality Digital was a decisive moment for anyone who thought 3D production was not practical. Suddenly, a post-production solution becomes part of the all production workflow."
This prestigious award brings the total number of awards made to Quantel over the last three months for its Stereo3D technology to an incredible total of eight - including two IBC Innovation Awards, the HPA Engineering Excellence Award, the IABM Award for Design and Innovation Excellence, TV Technology STAR Award, Broadcast Engineering IBC Pick Hit and TVB Europe's Best of IBC 2008 Award.
Quantel's Stereo3D post production technology has made interactive post production of stereoscopic 3D a practical proposition for the first time. In doing so, it is helping to drive a major new creative and business opportunity for broadcasters and post houses and giving producers a potent new weapon to attract audiences and increase revenues.
Rafael Zapardiel said: "We are proud and honoured to have won such recognition from Producción Professional. It also confirms the market's confidence and expectations for the development of Stereo3D and we will continue our efforts to drive this new business forward. We would also like to congratulate the organisers of the awards, Producción Professional magazine on the launch of its 100th issue - a superb achievement."
