Ghost Post chooses Pablo 4K for haunting images
New Swedish post house gears up for high quality film and commercials work
Newbury, UK, 13th June 2008: Gothenburg, Sweden-based Ghost Post has purchased a Quantel Pablo 4K non-linear color grading system, complete with the brand new Neo control interface. The Pablo joins the company’s eQ finishing system, which was one of Ghost Post’s first purchases when it opened for business in June 2007.
The Pablo is already employed right across Ghost Post’s spectrum of work, which includes commercials, shorts, feature films and high-end corporate productions. As the only major independent post house in the west of Sweden, Ghost Post is in an excellent position to exploit the power of Pablo across the whole gamut of DI and color grading projects. “This is the first Pablo 4K in Scandinavia, and its immense capabilities and incredible throughput give us a real edge in our market,” said Ghost Post co-founder, Mika Porkka.
Ghost Post carefully evaluated all the leading systems on the market before choosing the Quantel. “Pablo gives us the best overall 2K/4K solution, and we were also very impressed by the new Neo control panel, which we got a chance to preview at IBC last year,” Porkka continued. “Put simply, Quantel is the ultimate suite – owning one tells our customers a lot about our company. Also, the Pablo’s stereo3D capabilities are very exciting as the market is moving fast in that direction. We are presently exploring its potential alongside other early adopters based in Norway and Finland.”
Ghost Post is part of the Shoot & Post group of companies, which together offer a complete scene-to-screen production service, with LiteGrip handling acquisition, ImageLab the film developing/scanning, and Ghost Post handling all post production needs. “It makes it easy for the customer – they can get all the benefits of the highest quality creative talent and equipment for their entire project with just one call, and one person to deal with – we’re the complete one-stop production shop.”
