Turner Broadcasting System’s production arm, Turner Studios, has purchased a Pablo Rio colour and finishing system to provide post-production and creative services to all of Turner's networks.

Pablo Rio is Quantel's color and finishing system that provides workflow for 2D and S3D projects. However, it’s also capable of handling UltraHD 4K 60p in real time. The technology will see use at channels such as TBS, TNT, TCM, Cartoon Network and Turner Sports. Turner Studios has also purchased a Neo Nano panel for enhanced color control.

"As an artist, Pablo Rio provides the tools I need with the ergonomics that fit a more creative workflow,” said John Mandato, senior editor at Turner Studios. “I spend a lot less time thinking about the processes, and more time exploring creative options."

Pablo Rio runs on high-performance PC hardware and exploits NVIDIA Maximus multi-GPU technology to deliver interactivity.
