VDS announces Synapse Render for Quantel

VDS, a developer
of broadcast automation software, content design and plug-in products, announced
the immediate release of a Synapse render-only product for Quantel.

Synapse allows the Quantel operator direct, interactive use of hundreds of
professional-grade plug-ins from within the Pablo, iQ, gQ, eQ, QPaintbox, and
QEffects environments.

Synapse Renderer addresses the need for Quantel’s broadcast editing products
including sQ Edit, sQ Cut and the laptop editor, Marco, to be able to
render out pre-created templates using plug-in effects. Until now these systems
required full feature Synapse and plug-in licenses making it impractical to
include plug-in effects in the templates. Now, with Synapse Render it is
possible to have plug-in effects included in templates at a much lower cost. Initially,
the Synapse Renderer is available with GenArts Sapphire V2 plug-ins.

“We’re very pleased to be able to extend the capabilities of our templated
graphics workflows” says Trevor Francis, Quantel’s Worldwide Marketing
Manager for broadcast Systems. “VDS Plug-ins add flair and distinction to
news and sports programs: offering them within Quantel’s Templating package
allows that flair to be extended to all users while retaining control of style and
branding with the Creative Director.”

“We’re excited that Sapphire Plug-ins 2.0
is now available for Quantel render stations. Thanks to VDS, all the
latest effects in Sapphire 2 can now be used effectively within the entire
Quantel environment” said Anish Dhanda, Managing Director at GenArts, Inc.

“Until now many Quantel customers have been limited in their use of plug-in
effects in their templates.” comments David-Ray Worthington, Director of
Marketing and Product Development at VDS. “We are happy to announce that
this new render-only release of Synapse and Sapphire lifts that restriction.”
