Integration of the Fraunhofer IIS DCP Software easyDCP with Quantel’s Post Production Environment


The Fraunhofer-Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS and Quantel announce at IBC 2013 their cooperation to innovate and facilitate the workflow for content creation in the field of DCP-generation directly in the Quantel post production environment. Dedicated to enable new creative tools and make the process more cost-effective for post production houses, the easyDCP Plug-ins from Fraunhofer IIS will be available in the latest version of Quantel’s Pablo Rio high quality color and finishing system as well as Pablo, iQ and eQ systems.

Quantel as one of the well-known companies for content creation systems for broadcast
and post production facilities in the digital age is now integrating the easyDCP
functionality for creation, encryption and play-out of digital cinema packages from the
Fraunhofer IIS scientists in its post production toolsets.

“With the easyDCP functionality post houses can now instantly create DCPs with their
Quantel systems and broaden their possibilities for a multi-format play-out and
delivery,” explains Heiko Sparenberg, head of group Digital Cinema at Fraunhofer IIS.

Thanks to the KDM (key delivery message) generator integration the software can even
handle sensitive data for dailies, so that encrypted data for special players and a
determined play-out period can be activated. This helps to facilitate workflows during
the post-production process and also for the use in the play-out.

"Fraunhofer IIS’s software is recognised as one of the industry’s most comprehensive
DCP creating tools, and we have worked with Fraunhofer IIS to enable integration of its
DCP API within the Quantel environment in response to customer requests,” said
Quantel Marketing Director, Steve Owen.

easyDCP demos and new post production concepts will be demonstrated at the
Fraunhofer booth 8 B.80. A demo version for the upcoming release of Pablo Rio high
quality color and finishing system as well as Pablo, iQ and eQ systems with the easyDCP
integration will be demonstrated at the Quantel booth 7.A20.
