With demand for 3D production continuing to rise, 3D innovation company PACE in Burbank recently added three
more Quantel Sid Stereo3D workstations to its
arsenal. This purchase brings the Stereo3D pioneer's complement of Quantel
S3D systems to a total of seven.
The new additions are
currently supporting multiple productions: 'The
Three Musketeers', 'Final Destination 5'
and 'Journey to the Center of the Earth 2'. PACE already has
placed a Sid Stereo3D workstation on the set of Michael Bay's 'Transformers 3' and a Pablo
Stereo3D grading system for Martin
Scorsese's 'Hugo Cabret'.
Vince Pace, CEO of PACE,
has long been a believer in Quantel technology. "Quantel personifies quality
engineering, equipment and support," says Pace. "Our latest purchase is an
ongoing validation of the relationship between Quantel and PACE to provide
proven workflow solutions at the point of capture and ensuring that exceptional
3D gets on screen. The Sid's unique ability to QC the footage at the point of
capture is an added benefit that productions are taking advantage
PACE created the
company's "SLATE² SCREEN(tm)" effort to achieve superior 3D results in a more
cost-and time-efficient manner. The workstations are the heart of PACE's On-Set
Stereo Lab(tm) workflow, which provides interactive
3D control in the field and during dailies for the cinematographer and director.
The Sid toolset includes real-time Stereo3D operation at up to twin
HD-RGB, with full, interactive control of convergence, color balance, sync
alterations, eye comparisons, imaging errors and editing of both streams
