NVIDIA announced that a group of its partners and customers have adopted the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 SDI with
PureVideo technology and will be demonstrating these solutions at NAB2005.
This professional solution is designed to support a range of applications, from virtual-sets, to news, sports, and weather
broadcast systems, that combine live video footage with animated graphics and text. Film and video production
professionals can also leverage this high-definition (HD) serial digital interface (SDI) solution on HD broadcast monitors
to see real time previews of 3D compositing, editing, and color grading.
PureVideo technology offers exceptional video quality in solutions that span from the NVIDIA Quadro FX 540 to the just
announced SDI solution. The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 SDI for PCI Express is a fully integrated graphics-to-video
solution that delivers uncompressed 10-bit SDI from programmable graphics, enabling a direct connection to broadcast
monitors, switchers, tape decks, or SDI projectors. The real-time rendering, high-precision video color conversion, and
gamma correction capabilities of the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 SDI eliminate bandwidth bottlenecks and deliver
unprecedented quality with HD or SD video output.
The NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 SDI supports both Windows and Linux, and can be easily integrated within a broadcast or
video editing application. Visitors at NAB 2005 will find a wide range of post-production and broadcast solutions using
the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4000 SDI on the show floor, including:
