NVIDIA Quadro Unleashes High Resolution Real-Time Video Editing in Adobe CS5

NVIDIA today announced that a range of NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics solutions are certified by Adobe for Adobe Creative Suite 5 software, and truly unleash the real-time video editing and effects processing capabilities of Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.

This breakthrough version of Adobe Premiere Pro leverages the parallel processing architecture of NVIDIA GPUs and their hundreds of cores to allow film and video professionals to work unconstrained. Users can now create compelling, multi-layer projects with a virtually limitless number of HD or higher resolution video clips, then apply sophisticated visual effects and color correction, while still being able to view the output instantly.

By utilizing NVIDIA Quadro solutions, productivity is enhanced many times over by eliminating the wait for preview renders any time a change is made, and by being able to view projects at full resolution without skipping frames.

“Adobe CS5 with Quadro graphics is a godsend for production pros,” said Matt Silverman, creative director/partner at San Francisco-based Bonfire and Phoenix Editorial. “When you add NVIDIA GPU acceleration to Adobe Premiere Pro CS5, the performance gains and time savings are enormous. There’s simply no comparison between using CPU acceleration versus GPU acceleration. I can stack more layers and effects without affecting real-time playback, meaning I can be that much more creative in less time.”

A cost-effective NVIDIA Quadro-based workstation with Adobe video software now enables film and video professionals to achieve the performance and creative freedom previously reserved for dedicated edit suite systems costing upwards of $100,000.

“With Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 and the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine, we are redefining the non-linear editing workflow with industry-leading performance acceleration that will deliver big productivity gains for our users,” said Simon Hayhurst, senior director, product management for Digital Video and Audio Group at Adobe. “Performance and fidelity gains coupled with support for a range of NVIDIA cards deliver new capabilities for all professional workflows, enabling users as diverse as post-production studios, corporate videographers, film production, newsrooms – even video hobbyists – to tell their stories easily, with higher impact.”

“If time is money, Adobe Creative Suite users just hit the lottery,” said Andrew Cresci, NVIDIA general manager, vertical market solutions. “Breakthroughs of this nature are rare. With Adobe software running on NVIDIA GPUs, productivity increases, creativity is unconstrained, and creative professionals win.”

Adobe Creative Suite 5 Production Premium, which includes Adobe Photoshop Extended, Adobe After Effects and more, and Adobe Premiere Pro with the new Adobe Mercury Playback Engine that taps into the parallel processing capabilities of NVIDIA GPUs, is fully supported by a range of NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics solutions. Products certified by Adobe for professional use include the Quadro FX 5800, Quadro FX 4800, Quadro FX 4800 for Mac, Quadro FX 3800 and Quadro CX.

I think there are two GPUs on that card. On the smaller board, you can see some RAM. This is interesting. One strong GPU for computation and Cuda related stuff and another smaller GPU to handle the actual outputs?

Yeah I do too... seems to me to be a typical NVIDIA move... Maybe something to do with CUDA though. Oh well... A bit disappointing coming from Adobe :(

I think cause CS5 finally makes full use of Cuda, and therefore is much more efficient (?) or powerful (?) on Quadro than on Firepro.

I could be wrong but that is what I thought was happening.

Edit:
In order to harness the power of GPU, Adobe took one step back, though. Unlike the OpenGL effects Adobe was using in Creative Suite 4, resulting in sub-optimal acceleration for some GPUs, Premiere Pro CS5 is being built using nVidia CUDA software architecture. Yes, this singlehandedly gives the Adobe CS5 market to nVidia but given the share of nVidia Quadro boards versus ATI FirePro - we can't say we're surprised.

I don't think Abode did everything on their own, probably have the help from NVIDIA dev team.

Beside did anyone notice this?

iMac was famous in creative industry.
Apple use HD4800 series for their lastest Mac.

Apple hate Adobe.

Adobe's siding with NVIDIA.

I would say thats a GTX480/Quadro version with 2 unknown spec'd TV tuner cards.
Its not ment to be 1 card, its 3 lined up.

Yes it does, Polar, but the Quadro line has never been cheap.
