Adobe Recommends NVIDIA Quadro GPUs for OpenHD SolutionNVIDIA and Adobe have established a strategic partnership (January 18, 2006)
NVIDIA Corporation announced that NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics will offer Adobe users direct GPU acceleration capabilities that both increase application performance and enhance the video editing workflow through the newly announced Adobe Production Studio. NVIDIA and Adobe have established a strategic partnership that allows tighter integration between these hardware and software solutions in order to support industry initiatives, such as the recently announced Adobe OpenHD alliance.
Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0 integrates GPU-accelerated desktop playback which dramatically enhances the workflow for editing HD video footage. Fundamental tasks, such as scaling and positioning multiple layers of video, color correction, and cross-dissolve effects are all driven interactively on the GPU through the power of pixel shaders.
Adobe After Effects(R) 7.0 builds upon a strong base of GPU acceleration in prior versions, by allowing artists to use the GPU for both high fidelity previews and final rendering. This latest version enables artists to work in a true 3D space, and offers comprehensive GPU acceleration of motion blur, lights, shadows, blending, color correction, blurs, and matting. After Effects 7.0 also takes advantage of the memory on NVIDIA Quadro graphics cards to improve video playback performance and duration.
In addition, NVIDIA has developed a plug-in for use with After Effects 7.0 for the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 SDI, an integrated graphics-to-video solution used by broadcast, video, and film professionals. This plug-in offers real- time preview of content being created, directly on standard or high definition SDI broadcast monitors, from within the After Effects application environment.
NVIDIA also announced that it is now a member of the Adobe OpenHD alliance, which was created to deliver a line of certified Windows-based integrated HD solutions, making HD technology both affordable and accessible to a broader audience. NVIDIA Quadro solutions are the only graphics solutions certified for these Adobe OpenHD platforms, which offer turnkey systems that can provide users with the optimal "out of the box" experience. Adobe will be featuring these graphics solutions in the upcoming Adobe Production Studio road show starting in February, where NVIDIA is a leading sponsor.
The NVIDIA Quadro boards are now available widely through leading OEMs, workstation system integrators and NVIDIA channel partners PNY Technologies (US and EMEA), Leadtek (APAC), and Elsa (Japan).
