Genetic Engineering: a new teamworking infrastructure for post and DI
Maximizing your workflow
Workflow is the number one issue facing post and DI houses today. Genetic Engineering boosts workflow enabling you to get more profitable work through your facility more quickly, while maximizing the use of every resource – equipment and people.
The teamworking solution
Genetic Engineering is a teamworking infrastructure that really delivers on the promise of shared storage. Genetic Engineering means instant, guaranteed sharing and playback of multiple high resolution media streams from several attached workstations. Genetic Engineering increases efficiency, encourages creativity and delivers a step-change in flexibility. The result is unmatched workflow whether you’re working in HD, 2K, 4K or stereoscopic 3D.
Complete scheduling freedom
Genetic Engineering eliminates scheduling conflicts. With Genetic Engineering, multiple projects can be worked on simultaneously by every workstation connected to the GenePool – all without copying media or waiting for transfers. That’s great for business. Here’s how Genetic Engineering can dramatically improve your bottom line:
Genetic Engineering allows a number of Quantel Pablo and iQ or eQ workstations to share storage – on the GenePool - and, via the Sam data server, provides open access to shared media for other applications. The Max assist station allows non-creative tasks such as i/o, conforms and archiving to be handled outside the creative suites. All this enables the facility to get maximum throughput from every resource and boosts the productivity and profitability of every facility engaged in DI and high end post.
Totally open access
Sam opens up the GenePool by providing open read/write access for 3rd party applications via the cross-platform CIFS protocol. Sam can virtualize assets into different formats without creating new media and wasting disk space. And with Sam’s inventory view, you can look into the structure of clips and composites to access the underlying media as well as the finished version. All this with no proprietary API, just out of the box teamworking.
The Genetic Engineering workflow
Typical suite utilization before and after Genetic Engineering:
“Quantel’s Genetic Engineering blew us out of our seats with an infrastructure that does indeed change the way we travel through the digital intermediate workflow. The HPA Engineering Excellence Awards were created to honor genre changing processes and products and Genetic Engineering does just that.”
