Whichever your choice, from HD/2K to 4K high frame rate, you will have a first class long-form finishing system that fulfils your requirements.

Fast & Comprehensive Finishing Tool

Conform, add effects, grade, add captions and produce the deliverables all in one system; no round tripping, and no hassle. SAM Quantel Rio provides a complete long-form finishing toolset with the power to tackle anything from fast turnaround documentaries to highly crafted dramas and virtually eliminates the need ever to move media between suites.

Storage Flexibility

Quantel Rio will work with any form of high performance storage; the agility of the system means that you can work with any combination of direct-attached, NAS or SAN.
Quantel Rio integrates fully with a facility’s existing LANs and SANs and works easily with low resolution QuickTimes and JPEGs, as well as with native resolution DPX and Cineon files. SAM’s soft-mount technology enables working with RED, DPX, CINEON, TIFF, DNxHD and OpenEXR media while it is still on the SAN or NAS, saving time by allowing work to begin immediately without first importing media into the Quantel Rio workspace.
