    NVIDIA Corporation today introduced the NVIDIA Quadro Digital Video Pipeline, the industry’s first integrated GPU-based platform for broadcasters to acquire, process and deliver virtual effects to video.
    The solution offers the fastest graphics computation engine for broadcast production, in a flexible, reliable and cost-effective PC-based platform. By providing a direct path for image processing into and out of the GPU, it allows professionals to incorporate higher quality, graphic-rich broadcasts in real time. It also offers the fastest path for capturing and transcoding HD broadcast-quality video for use in real-time Internet streaming services.

    “Our customers rely on us to deliver high-quality broadcasts in real-time,” says Paul Lacombe, president at Brainstorm America. “With the NVIDIA Quadro Digital Video Pipeline, we can now utilize the power of the GPU from acquisition to final delivery; allowing us to meet the direct needs of our customer’s and offer then higher quality, more graphic-rich broadcasts in real-time. This system is going to change the course of live broadcast.”

    The Quadro Digital Video Pipeline integrates the following:
    • Quadro SDI Capture card - enables uncompressed video to be streamed directly to Quadro SDI-enabled GPU memory, with the ability to capture up to four HD-SDI Single link sources simultaneously. Supports all SMPTE standard formats (3G, 2K, HD and SD) and includes a monitor out of the primary input.
    • Quadro SDI Output card - provides an integrated graphics-to-video solution, enabling 2D and 3D effects to be composited in real-time with 2K, HD and SD video. It can be genlocked to external house sync, or synced to the SDI Capture card.
    • Quadro FX professional GPU solutions – choose from the latest generation Quadro FX 3800, Quadro FX 4800 and Quadro FX 5800. Based on NVIDIA’s revolutionary CUDA parallel computing architecture, Quadro offers advanced features and capabilities, up to 240 parallel processing cores and support for next-generation OpenGL and Microsoft DirectX 10 applications.
    • Quadro Digital Video Pipeline SDK – includes an extensive software development kit containing samples, APIs and plug-ins that allow applications to easily optimize the graphics and data processing pipelines of the Quadro GPU. This ensures easy programmability and control through the entire Digital Video Pipeline -- from capture through final delivery.

    “The Quadro Digital Video Pipeline lets us bypass the CPU and main memory, and take full advantage of the visual and computational power of the GPU,” said Marv White, chief technology officer, Sportvision. “By continuing to work closely with NVIDIA, we’re ensuring our customers continue to get the most innovative technology in live broadcast today."

    “Over the next two years, we’re going to see an even bigger surge in the adoption of on-air broadcast graphics and virtual sets,” said Jeff Brown, general manager, professional solutions, NVIDIA. “We can hardly wait to see what the broadcast community will do with this with new technology.”

    NVIDIA is highlighting the new platform at the NVIDIA NAB 2009 booth: SL 7906, lower South Hall at the Las Vegas Convention Center, from April 20 to 23, 2009.

    Pricing and Availability
    NVIDIA Quadro Digital Video Pipeline will ship August 2009. The estimated street prices range from $5,000 to $8,000 USD, depending on configuration. Special partner discounts are available for those who qualify. For more information on NVIDIA Quadro Digital Video Pipeline, visit: http://www.nvidia.com/quadro/dvp.

    I was thinking it would be for churches. More and more are doing webcasts of their sermons. That's prices it out of most church's budgets though.

    He means that we have graphics cards priced at medium-end prices, so instead of getting a proposed 'GTX 250', just buy the last-generation high-end card which would be the 9800. Actually, nVidia renamed the 9800 series GTX 250. So what exactly are you complaining about?

    That being said, yes I indeed do like tech, and what I'd like to see is a new high-end card, namely GTX300-series card, possibly based on GT212 and preferably GT300.

    And btw, are you serious about that "Heil Hitler" sig of yours? And for someone as enlightened as the average Estonian, I am appalled.

    I like technology, however I'm smart enough to realize that developing new technology as fast as possible is not always the best thing. If "old" technology is capable of filling the needs of modern day, it is often wise to simply use the technology that already exists. Especially in today's economic state.

    There is no point in nVidia maintaining such an accelerated developement schedule in the current economic downturn. Designing a mid-range GPU based off the GT200 would produce a GPU that is amazingly similar to G92, so why waste money developing it at an accelerated rate when they can just use G92 instead?
    1c3d0g says thanks.

    Nvidia are in trouble,there fallout with Intel over SLi, there motherboard chipset market was destroyed by this, there purchcase of Physex hasn't reaped any rewards either, and there massive Mobile Graphics fallout from High failure rates with there M8600 gpu cost them millions, I allso forgot to mention there battle against the resurgance of ATI smashing them around is allmost all levels of the GPU market, from low range through to mid then on to high.

    Another example is there rebadging old GPUs and selling them as a new model, another marketing ploy they are using to gain back some precious $$$ they are losing for there shareholders.

    You cant blame there for trying something new , trying new markets were others have yet to enter and little or if no competition to stay affloat.

    The big green Giant is in trouble , if you agree or not the writing has been on the wall for some time.

    That is the perfect answer to everyone whining about rebranding. I was just about to write it myself, and even though it can be improved, I believe it should be quoted and placed somewhere so that everyone can see it. It would save us a lot of stupid questions.
