NVIDIA to Showcase Accelerated Creative Workflows at NAB
NVIDIA is showcasing how professionals creating and distributing content can accelerate their workflows using the latest GPU technologies and partner software in booth SL3905 and throughout the conference at NAB 2013.
NVIDIA GPUs provide the power behind the most important applications used for animation, color correction, editing, visual effects, on-air graphics and the processing of content for distribution to multiple screens.
Demonstrations featured in NVIDIA’s booth include:
On-Demand GPU Acceleration
Unveiled in March at the GPU Technology Conference, the NVIDIA GRID(TM) Visual Computing Appliance (VCA) enables workgroups of up to 16 users to get the full benefits of NVIDIA Quadro reliability and performance on their Windows, Mac and Linux systems. At NAB, NVIDIA will feature technology demonstrations of the GRID VCA running:
- Adobe Photoshop CS6 and the next version of Adobe After Effects® running virtually on a Linux system -- two applications that do not have native Linux versions.
- Autodesk 3ds Max 2014 with full GPU acceleration on a MacBook Pro – an application that does not natively run on Mac OS.
Simultaneous Animation, Simulation and Rendering
Animators and visual-effects artists can create, simulate and render simultaneously without interruption with NVIDIA® Maximus(TM) technology. Using the latest generation of NVIDIA Quadro® GPUs based on the powerful NVIDIA Kepler™ architecture, Maximus technology will be demonstrated with:
- MAXON CINEMA 4D and Jawset TurbulenceFD on a Dell T7600 workstation showcasing interactive particle simulation for 3D animation, only possible with Maximus technology.
- Otoy Octane Render on an HP Z820 workstation showcasing interactive, globally illuminated rendering.
Accelerated Color Grading
Employing multiple NVIDIA Kepler-architecture GPUs on a Mac Pro system with a Cubix expansion chassis and Blackmagic Design DaVinci Resolve, NVIDIA will show the current state of the art for color grading for colorists, video producers and digital filmmakers
High-Speed Video Production
Video editors, digital filmmakers and broadcasters who need real-time performance for fast video production will see the next version of Adobe Premiere® Pro, which adds supports for multiple GPUs in the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine, running on a Dell Covet mobile workstation with NVIDIA Quadro processors.
“Adobe is revealing some incredible enhancements to our professional video editing tools at NAB this year,” said Bill Roberts, director of video product management at Adobe. “We’re very pleased that NVIDIA continues to support Adobe and our next-generation tools with their powerful Kepler GPUs that enable the professional video community to bring their creative visions to life faster than before.”
NVIDIA technologies can also be found in dozens of booths throughout NAB. A number of leading vendors are demonstrating significant new capabilities that take advantage of the features and performance of NVIDIA GPUs, including:
