(Las Vegas, Nevada--April 16, 2013) Quantel announced today that its Pablo Rio software high-end color and finishing system now supports the latest NVIDIA(r) Kepler(tm) architecture-based Tesla(r) K20 GPU accelerators. Tesla K20 GPUs provide about twice the performance of the previous-generation Tesla GPUs based on the NVIDIA Fermi architecture, and 10 times faster performance than the latest CPUs.
Exploiting the processing power enabled by the Kepler architecture to the maximum has allowed Quantel's engineers to enhance realtime performance on Pablo Rio, realizing a processing gain of 60-100% in color, effects and finishing operations. The result is massively enhanced throughput, which will make even 4K working at 60fps an interactive, client-friendly process.
The Tesla K20 GPU accelerators are being offered by Quantel as standard on new Pablo Rio turnkey systems as well as being supported in software-only versions where customers configure their own systems. In addition, existing systems can upgrade to a Tesla K20 accelerator at any time according to their business needs.
"Pablo Rio already offers the most comprehensive and capable color and finishing environment on the market," said Steve Owen, Quantel Marketing Director. "Exploiting the power of the very latest NVIDIA Kepler-based GPUs and the AJA Corvid Ultra video card makes Pablo Rio a truly formidable high-end post and finishing solution - a workflow hub capable of handling everything modern post demands."
NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPU accelerators will be supported in V2.0 rev2 software, released in April 2013. Support for 60fps operation to follow.
