SIGGRAPH 2009, NEW ORLEANSâ€”Aug. 4, 2009â€”NVIDIA today unveiled new breakthrough
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 âˆ’ 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.
â€œThe 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,â€? said Jeff Brown, general manager, Professional Solutions, NVIDIA. â€œWith 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.â€?
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 IGIâ€“two firms that design and deploy state-of-the-art collaboration and visualization centers worldwideâ€“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.
â€œFor our customers, the ability to view and interact with information while collaborating with colleagues leads to greater insights and more accurate results,â€? said Jeff Esienhard, vice president Americas, Cyviz. â€œNVIDIA 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.â€?
â€œNVIDIA Quadro Plex solutions allow us to re-define the traditional collaboration center by enabling any application to be run on our large visualization displays,â€? said Pat Hernandez, president of IGI. â€œThe 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.â€?
â€œImaging 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,â€? said Randall Stevens, CEO of Mersive, a leading display technology company. â€œBy combining NVIDIAâ€™s industry-leading visualization solutions with Mersiveâ€™s auto display calibration technology, we can deploy affordable and reliable ultra-resolution environments.â€?
