Pixspan, Inc., the leading storage and bandwidth workflow technology company for full-resolution images, today announces the general availability of its PixMoverTM . software, now supporting 4K workflow speeds. The new GPU-enabled PixMoverTM, when used with a dual-processor server and NVIDIA M6000 GPU card, operates two-to-four times faster than with a CPU-only server. The company will be demonstrating this latest version of PixMover™ at the Innovation Zone during the HPA Tech Retreat UK, which runs July 13-14 in Oxfordshire, England. The addition of the GPU capability to PixMover™ brings additional speed to storage and transfer workflows. Requiring 50-80% less space, 4K digital intermediate files and uncompressed camera raw can be stored on NAS or SAN, and restored in full resolution at 4K workflow speeds. When it comes to transfer, full-quality files can be transferred in half the time or less while consuming a smaller amount of bandwidth, with the first full resolution frame being available on the distant end within a second. PixMoverTM also comes with an intuitive graphic user interface. Its UI makes it easy to free up space on storage volumes that are full, avoiding the need to expand file systems, add storage or offload to tape. With a simple “drag and drop” of the mouse, users can choose between compressing files in place or moving them to different storage volumes for restoring back to full resolution later. In either case, space is freed up to accommodate new work projects. A unique workflow feature of PixMoverTM is its automatic creation of proxies within each frame file container. Proxies can be viewed instantly, without the need for further processing or special software. Users can be sure of a file’s content without using a special application to open it in full resolution. This makes full resolution workflows more efficient by reducing the creation and tracking of proxies. PixMoverTM is available through authorized Pixspan resellers — ALT Systems in Los Angeles; Alliance IT in Los Angeles; XTFX in London; Post Logic in Paris; and VGI in Tokyo. Pixspan software is sold on a subscription basis for as short as one month. There is no major software investment, and it can be rented for as long as it is needed. PixMoverTM is offered as a pay-as-you-go software on off-the-shelf hardware.
