SGI Targets Digital Cinema, Broadcast Storage

Visualization of large data combined with open standards, methodologies and systems are the focus for Silicon Graphics (SGI) at NAB2005. Leveraging SGI's heritage in visualization and the management of large complex data, the Silicon Graphics Prism visualization and SGI InfiniteStorage RM610/RM660 systems make their NAB debut.

Prism is a compact open-architecture platform that handles the 4K requirements of digital cinema mastering and digital intermediates. By combining standards-based 64-bit Intel Itanium 2 processors, the Linux operating system, ATI graphics processors and its advanced graphics technology, SGI has created a system to address demanding visual computing problems.

Also in the company's booth will be its new SGI InfiniteStorage RM610 and RM660 storage systems. These high-speed and large capacity products are targeted at the requirements of broadcasters and production facilities, both of which are rapidly migrating to IT data-centric environments.

SGI is in Booth SL1943 at NAB2005.
