LAS VEGAS, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 04/05/14 -- NAB 2014 -- NVIDIA (booth SL 6825) today announced its GPUs are powering the upcoming releases and new GPU-accelerated features of Adobe® Creative Cloud video applications, such as Adobe Premiere Pro® CC, Adobe After Effects® CC, SpeedGrade CC, Adobe Media Encoder (AME), and Adobe Anywhere. The upcoming releases were revealed by Adobe at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) Show.
NVIDIA's GPUs are a "must-have" tool for Adobe video professionals -- enabling the fastest performance across the widest range of Creative Cloud applications, whether working in HD or 4K, desktop or mobile, workstation or cloud. NVIDIA and Adobe have engaged in a long-standing effort to develop unmatched GPU-accelerated features designed for professional Video Editors, VFX artists and Colorists.
The latest version of Adobe Premiere Pro CC will add a significant speed and efficiency improvement to 4K workflows by enabling GPU debayering for real-time RED Camera media 4K playback on NVIDIA GPUs. Before this new GPU feature was added, Adobe Premiere Pro CC editors needed an additional dedicated RED ROCKET card. Fast GPU debayering is a boon for video editors, adding more choices for fluid video workflows while managing costs.
Additionally, the latest version of Adobe Premiere Pro CC offers new GPU-accelerated Mercury Playback Engine features for real-time playback, including Master Clip Effects to enable all changes to be applied to sub-clips, as well as Feathered Masking for automatic image tracking. These new GPU-powered features add to the growing list of GPU optimizations within Adobe Premiere Pro CC and throughout Adobe Creative Cloud applications.
Other key NVIDIA GPU-driven benefits for video editors using Adobe Creative Cloud include:
- NVIDIA GPU Optimization for Mac
CUDA performance optimizations for NVIDIA-accelerated Macs provide up to 30% faster Adobe Premiere Pro CC performance vs. an out-of-the-box configuration.*
- Adobe Anywhere
Adobe Anywhere's remote streaming and Mercury Playback Engine benefit from GPU-acceleration and exclusive support for NVIDIA Tesla-based server solutions.
- SpeedGrade CC
GPU acceleration throughout SpeedGrade CC, includes the Lumetri Deep Color Engine for seamless color grading workflows between SpeedGrade and Adobe Premiere Pro CC.
- Adobe After Effects CC
Exclusive NVIDIA GPU-accelerated 3D ray tracing in Adobe After Effects CC provides ultra-fast interactive 3D motion graphics performance. 3D ray tracing is based on NVIDIA's OptiX application acceleration engine.
- Adobe Media Encoder CC
Integrated GPU-accelerated Mercury Playback Engine speeds rendering tasks like scaling, pixel format conversions, and de-interlacing. It also speeds image processing output, such as watermarks and Lumetri "Looks."
"Video pros are constantly looking for speed, efficiency and a better interactive experience," said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. "Adobe leverages as much NVIDIA GPU compute and graphics performance as possible. The engineers at Adobe and NVIDIA collaborate to make sure that new features across Adobe Creative Cloud are infused with the added power to let video editors and motions graphics pros work in real time."
"GPU acceleration is one of the keys to a consistently powerful suite of Adobe Creative Cloud solutions for video pros. And that's why we continue to work so closely with Adobe to develop innovative new technologies that make it faster and more intuitive for creative pros to focus on making amazing productions," added Greg Estes, GM, Media & Entertainment and VP, Marketing, Pro Visualization for NVIDIA.
"NVIDIA's Quadro K6000 GPU is a great alternative for GPU-accelerated debayering, transitions, color grading and more for RED camera users," said Jarred Land, President, RED. "The addition of GPU debayering in Adobe Premiere Pro CC extends more workflow flexibility to video professionals with the RED camera while still leveraging the NVIDIA GPU features that they know and love."
The following demos will be available throughout NAB in the NVIDIA and Adobe booths, showcasing the power of NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture for the most powerful performance in Adobe Creative Cloud:
- Real-time playback of 4K playback of RED Camera workflows in Adobe Premiere Pro CC based on new NVIDIA GPU-Accelerated debayering without the need for a RED ROCKET card; demonstrated on an NVIDIA Quadro K6000-based workstation.
- Broadest range of Adobe Creative Cloud video and imaging workflows using tools such as SpeedGrade CC, After Effects CC, Adobe Media Encoder CC and Photoshop CC, enabled by NVIDIA GPUs; demonstrated on an NVIDIA Quadro K6000-based workstation.
- NVIDIA GPU optimizations for Mac and Adobe Creative Cloud video tools.

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to make sense of it all.
