So much of what comes out of Japan tends to imply that when it comes to electronic technology, the Japanese have no peer that an advertisement from Fujitsu Ltd invites notice. Quantel Ltd, the Newbury, Berkshire company that invented the equipment that creates most of the graphic and kaleidoscopic special effects beloved of television producers around the world, uses Fujitsu disk drives in the latest version of its Graphic Paintbox – and Fujitsu is treating the contract like a Royal Warrant. To Fujitsu, it’s the startling new Graphic Paintbox – the electronic graphic design system developed by Quantel. And Quantel is an explosively creating British company, according to Fujitsu, that in the last 10 years has revolutionised television graphics all over the world, and begun to change the face of print graphics as well. It has done so by meshing the highest developments of digital technology with the timeless techniques of the artist, the message goes on, before coming to the plug – And we have done a lot to help – we’re the people Quantel came to when they couldn’t find a disk drive that was good enough for their Paintbox.
