Quantel unveiled a new Pablo Rio working in realtime at 8K 60p at InterBEE 2014. The new Pablo Rio system makes 8K 60p post-production practical as 8K moves out from the laboratory into real-world production. The new Pablo Rio 8K will ship next year.
Pablo Rio is a software high quality color correction and finishing system that runs on high performance PC hardware. The new Pablo Rio 8K has three significant power-ups compared to the systems shipping today:
Realtime 8K 60p input and output via 16 3G SDI interfaces using the latest AJA Corvid 88 multichannel I/O boards to achieve the necessary number of connections in a practical unit
Realtime 8K 60p processing using the NVIDIA® Tesla® K80 GPU accelerators. Announced earlier this week, these world’s highest performance GPU accelerators for data analytics and scientific computing are already part of the system demonstrated at InterBEE, thanks to Quantel’s close working relationship with NVIDIA.
Super-optimized software to sustain the 5GBytes/s throughput required for real-time recording, processing and playback of 8K 60p
The system demonstrated at InterBEE included four AJA Corvid 88 cards, three Tesla K80 GPU accelerators and three RAID 60 arrays offering 166 minutes of storage at 8K 60p (7680 x 4320 422 59.94 fps). 8K images were monitored in real-time on a virtual 8K display comprising four 4K monitors.
