GPL to Demonstrate High Speed Visualization by NVIDIA at Autodesk University

By CIOReview | Wednesday, November 25, 2015

LOS ANGELES, CA: GPL Technologies will demonstrate a new system for virtualization and visualization via the latest graphics acceleration technology from NVIDIA. The event, to be held at Autodesk University in Las Vegas from December 1st to 3rd, includes a special live remote demonstration using NVIDIA GRID technology, Quadro professional GPUs and the Quadro Visual Computing Appliance (VCA).

NVIDIA GRID cards are designed exclusively for applications in virtualized environments and can operate without a physical monitor, or any video outputs. “These new graphics tools offer a big boost in performance, especially for virtualized desktops,” says GPL Technologies CEO Brian Terrell. “We are very excited about their potential to enhance creative collaboration and productivity. These tools have the potential to change the way artists work together.”

NVIDIA GRID and Quadro technologies have lured visual effects artists, video editors, graphics designers, and other graphics-intensive users for their capacity to fast rendering and facilitate the use of virtual desktop infrastructures.

The demonstrations at Autodesk University will run continuously on three workstations, with one workstation linked remotely to a Quadro VCA at NVIDIA’s headquarters in Santa Clara. The demonstration is intended to highlight the VCA’s capacity to accelerate rendering, and allow artists to compose quicker design decisions, while reducing dependence on overnight renders.
