Quantel, FastSoft, Panasonic receive awards

Quantel’s 3-D stereo post-production system is among the three winners of Hollywood Post Alliance engineering excellence awards.

The HPA hailed Quantel’s Pablo system for making live-action stereoscopic 3-D post “viable for the first time.”

Also receiving HPA engineering kudos are FastSoft for E Series Internet Accelerator, and Panasonic for AVC-Intra 100 Video Codec.

HPA engineering excellence awards must represent “a significant step forward for the post-production industry,” the org said in announcing the winners Friday.

The HPA Awards presentation is set for Nov. 6 at the Skirball Cultural Center in Los Angeles.
