Digital cinema company Offhollywood has been named the exclusive North American reseller of IN2CORE’s QTAKE HD video assist system. Designed and developed for video assist professionals, QTAKE HD is a powerful yet easy-to-learn system that integrates every aspect of modern video assist into a single solution. With the addition of this sophisticated system to its offering of cutting-edge technologies, Offhollywood continues its leadership in providing producers with the flexibility and innovation enabled by the latest hardware and software.
“We developed QTAKE HD to bring users the best in HD digital video assist, and the resulting software opens to producers a whole new realm of possibilities in establishing efficient RED-centered workflows,” says Vlado Struhar, designer and developer at IN2CORE. “As a leader in designing and implementing RED-based solutions for digital cinema, Offhollywood is an ideal partner for the distribution of QTAKE HD. We’re pleased to be working with the company to make QTAKE HD and its advanced capabilities available to the North American production market.”
The QTAKE HD software application has been thoroughly tested in real production environments for nearly a year. The cutting-edge software system allows users to log, capture, play, edit and process the video output of digital cinema cameras. Key features include instant record and playback, a powerful clip database, intensive image processing in real time, extensive logging capabilities, rapid shot selection with a tree-based visual browser, a simple and intuitive nonlinear editor, import and export, real-time overlay with blending, keying and wipe functions, and RED ONE support.
“As an early adopter and alpha tester of QTAKE HD, Offhollywood was impressed with IN2CORE’s ability to implement new features and integrate our feedback into the development process and refinement of the user interface,” says Offhollywood CEO Mark L. Pederson. “It just seemed logical that we introduce the system to the North American market.
“As we strive to provide our customers with a comprehensive range of production solutions, we spend a great deal of time seeking out the latest and greatest technologies,” continues Pederson. “QTAKE HD is the most advanced video assist solution available, with a roadmap that sets it apart as the future-proof choice of industry professionals.
