SYRACUSE, N.Y., Sept. 19 -- Seneca, a leading custom computer and appliance manufacturer that provides expertise in designing, building, and integrating systems for the digital broadcast market, today announced the availability of the Nexlink 7950 workstation for digital broadcast and other accelerated computing applications. The digital broadcast market is rapidly adopting the 4k standard, and the Nexlink 7950 high performance workstation has the capability to edit 4K raw formatted files.
“Seneca is focused on designing workstations, servers, storage appliances, and video control room platforms to help the transition of HD content to the 4K standard,” said David Mitchell, Market Development Manager, Seneca. “This workstation provides an easy to use platform that is certified with leading ISVs in the digital broadcast space to optimize the manipulation of GPU intensive content.”
NVIDIA Maximus Technology
The Nexlink 7950 workstation features NVIDIA Maximus technology based on the Kepler architecture, which combines the visualization and interactive design power of NVIDIA Quadro GPUs and the high-performance computing power of NVIDIA Tesla K20 GPUs. NVIDIA Tesla accelerators automatically perform the heavy lifting for photorealistic rendering or engineering simulations and computations, freeing up CPU resources for work they are best suited for I/O and running the operating system. The NVIDIA Quadro GPU is dedicated to powering rich, full-performance, interactive visualization.
“Workstations with multiple NVIDIA GPUs allow designers, artists, and engineers to significantly scale up their performance and dramatically shorten their workflows,” said Eugene Kwak, senior product manager for Maximus at NVIDIA. “With NVIDIA Maximus, content creation professionals can perform faster video editing, effects, and animation, making the technology ideal for digital broadcast applications.”
Adobe Creative Cloud Pro Video Optimized System
The Nexlink 7950 workstation is a digital broadcast editing and rendering workstation with Adobe Creative Cloud Pro Video Optimized System Certification. Adobe digital broadcast software allows for complete workflow support with integration for enterprise class storage, media asset management, and delivery solutions.
