New Orleans, LA, August 6, 2009 -- Globalstor® Data Corporation, a premier OEM integrator of high-performance RAID, SAN and storage/video servers, is flexing the muscle of its new ExtremeStor-4K video storage and playback workstation for RED and stereo applications at SIGGRAPH 2009. PNY has tapped the ExtremeStor-4K, which offers native, uncompressed 4K resolution playback, to power demonstrations of the NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5800 SDI by PNY graphics card at its booth (#2017), showcasing the latest in finishing, stereoscopic and RED workflows.
For the demos, PNY is using the ExtremeStor-4K, incorporating the NVIDIA Quadro® FX 5800 SDI by PNY with the SCRATCH® data workflow and post-production tool suite from ASSIMILATE™, creating a cutting-edge DI solution that delivers a 4K digital workflow with the ability to conform, color grade, finish and play back content in real time as a high-resolution 4K image at 24 frames per second. Thanks to the ExtremeStor-4K’s ability to process extremely large, uncompressed file sizes in real time, SIGGRAPH attendees will see how NVIDIA Quadro FX by PNY graphics boards optimize professional 3D applications, streamlining 3D workflows and allowing users to give full rein to their creativity.
“We’re excited to demonstrate with our key partners industry-proven visualization solutions that provide advancements for our 3D professional clients to free up their creative process, make their workflows more efficient and help them stay ahead of their competition,” says Jeff Medeiros, director of marketing, PNY Technologies. “Globalstor’s ExtremeStor-4K, with its powerful, reliable playback capabilities, is the ideal hardware component for these solutions, so it was a natural choice for the demos.”
Launched at NAB 2009 earlier this year, Globalstor’s ExtremeStor-4K is the next generation of the company’s acclaimed ExtremeStor-DI video storage workstation. This new solution is the first to offer native, uncompressed 4K, stereoscopic 2K and R3D (RED) realtime playback in a single portable system. Unlike any approach offered by the competition, the ExtremeStor-4K offers its robust architecture, scalability, reliability and ease-of-use in a compact tower design that can also be rack-mounted.
“We’re thrilled that PNY has chosen the ExtremeStor-4K as the hardware backbone of its SIGGRAPH 2009 demonstrations,” says Scott Leif, president of Globalstor Data Corporation. “Combined with the NVIDIA Quadro FX 5800 SDI by PNY card and ASSIMILATE SCRATCH, it offers SIGGRAPH visitors a glimpse into the future of 3D workflows: fast, efficient and of remarkably high quality.”
