MaxVision and Assimilate team for new data-centric workstation

At NAB 2006, MaxVision (booth #SL5569) and Assimilate will demonstrate a jointly developed solution consisting of Assimilate's Scratch Data-Centric Workflow Solution running on the MaxVision MaxPac9200XL workstation.

The powerful combination provides creative and post-production professionals with the ability to work on location using a portable workstation for digital film or HD projects that has the same high-performance capabilities for data-centric postproduction as they do in the studio. Users will benefit from the 1920x1200 display for full fidelity reviews, edit, playback color grading, or any variation of the post mix.

The MaxPac9200XL portable workstation is based on the latest dual-processor/dual-core Opteron 275HE, which enables the fastest quad CPU processing on the market, according to both companies.

It features a 23-inch 1920 x 1200 resolution LCD display and an HDPac8 removable hard drive. The HDPac8 holds eight 500GB SATA hard drives (4TB) configured as a Raid 5 array, and can record uncompressed HD and 2K video through a dual-link SDI interface card. The Nvidia Quadro FX4500 video controller also comes standard with the system, making it fully compatible with Assimilate's Scratch software.

Scratch features include data management and simultaneous, real-time, multi-resolution review/playback, assemble/edit, conform, primary and secondary color grading, multi-layer grading stack, audio, visual effects (enhanced by third-party plug-ins), and final mastering to any format. It supports 1D, 3D and customer-developed Look-Up-Tables (LUTs), running in real time.
