NVIDIA GRID VCA Grabs Major Hollywood AwardNovember 7, 2013
Roll out the red carpet. Our NVIDIA GRID Visual Computing Appliance (VCA) has won the annual award for engineering excellence from the Hollywood Post Alliance (HPA).
This is a big deal for us. The HPA represents some of the creative professionals we admire most. They provide the technical expertise for the movies, television and other media that people all over the world love.
These are pros who need to work fast – and flexibly – on a huge variety of projects. Which is why we are happy the HPA has acknowledged the GRID VCA, a new tool that allows creative pros to tap into our powerful GPUs whenever they need it.
The GRID VCA is perfect for small post houses that don’t have huge IT budgets. It lets them on-board contractors quickly and easily, protects valuable customer assets by keeping them secure in the server room and gives video artists the graphics power they need on the PC of their choice.
What’s more, the GRID VCA is a transformer. Within moments, it changes from a remote graphics server delivering design applications for eight concurrent users to a rendering powerhouse putting the performance of up to 4 GPUs to work on a single project.
In short, the GRID VCA gives digital artists the graphics power they need for what they do best – create great content. It also gives smaller shops access to the kinds of tools once available only to much larger firms.
The result: more power, and more flexibility, for the pros who need it most.
