NVIDIA Unveils Breakthrough Solutions For Enterprise Collaboration And Visualization Centers
NVIDIA Quadro Plex-based Scalable Visualization Solutions Simplify Deployment and Dramatically Reduce Cost of Ultra-high Resolution Systems
SIGGRAPH 2009, NEW ORLEANS-Aug. 4, 2009-NVIDIA today unveiled new breakthrough Quadro® Plex solutions targeted at scalable visualization professionals who interact with 3D models and analyze large volumes of data. These cost-effective visual computing platforms are designed to power a wide range of ultra-high resolution and multi-channel collaboration environments - ranging from interpretation desktops to visualization walls to network operations centers.
Quadro Plex-based solutions enable professionals in fields such as energy exploration, architectural design, medical research and consumer packaged goods to seamlessly run any software application across multiple ultra-high resolution displays or projectors, facilitating accurate and timely decision making.
"The massive leap in GPU computing power of our Quadro Plex solutions is enabling customers to interact with their data in ways that previously were not possible," said Jeff Brown, general manager, Professional Solutions, NVIDIA. "With the introduction of our turnkey scalable visualization solutions, NVIDIA is taking what used to be a complex issue for customers, and delivering plug-and-play simplicity at one tenth the cost."
These flexible solutions are built on the award-winning NVIDIA Quadro Plex visual computing system, featuring two Quadro FX 5800 GPUs and 8 GB of memory. By connecting two Quadro Plex systems to a single workstation, users can view images at a resolution of 36 megapixels, span visuals across two 4K projectors or eight auto-synchronized displays, and drive stereoscopic 3D content for a truly immersive experience.
Available from NVIDIA partners such as Cyviz and IGI-two firms that design and deploy state-of-the-art collaboration and visualization centers worldwide-Quadro Plex scalable visualization solutions power environments where high resolution images and real-time data feeds are seamlessly blended for training, simulation and operations monitoring.
"For our customers, the ability to view and interact with information while collaborating with colleagues leads to greater insights and more accurate results," said Jeff Esienhard, vice president Americas, Cyviz. "NVIDIA Quadro Plex scalable visualization solutions allow us to easily configure and build a wide range of ultra-high resolution premium display walls for collaboration environments, enabling our customers to process complex data sets and make better decisions."
"NVIDIA Quadro Plex solutions allow us to re-define the traditional collaboration center by enabling any application to be run on our large visualization displays," said Pat Hernandez, president of IGI. "The dramatically lower price points of these new solutions from NVIDIA, and their simplified IT requirements, will lead to an increase in adoption throughout the marketplace."
"Imaging and display technologies have evolved over the years, and today a 50 inch HDTV certainly looks great. But imagine being able to easily view content at 16 times that resolution," said Randall Stevens, CEO of Mersive, a leading display technology company. "By combining NVIDIA's industry-leading visualization solutions with Mersive's auto display calibration technology, we can deploy affordable and reliable ultra-resolution environments."
