"Leveraging NVIDIA CUDA technology to accelerate our application on the GPU has dramatically improved the filtering speed of the TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress software," said Tak EBINE, CEO, Pegasys Inc. "CUDA technology has helped us deliver this result in a relatively short development time because it is intuitive to C programmers."
TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress software converts and compresses (encodes) all types of video files that can be played on the PC, including MPEG, AVI, WMV, DivX, FLV, as well as DVD video. Pegasys unique Video Mastering Engines interface has gained a reputation for being user-friendly, enabling easy editing and conversion of video sources.
NVIDIA first released CUDA in 2007, providing software developers with a programming environment based on the industry-standard C-language for the easy creation of applications running on NVIDIA GPUs. Some of the first consumer applications to market are video encoding and decoding programs, which market analysts and consumer technology advocates consider prime candidates for GPU acceleration.
NVIDIA has shipped more than 80 million CUDA-enabled GPUs into the market. Processes that can be divided into multiple elements and run in parallel can be programmed to take advantage of the massive processing potential of the GPU.
