NVIDIA GPUs Power Latest Adobe Creative Cloud Enhancements for Video Professionals

Adobe Premiere Pro CC Adds New Real-Time RED Camera 4K Playback and Debayering on NVIDIA GPUs for Ultra-Fast Video Editing Workflows

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 Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses. Real-time stream processing is needed in a variety of different industries such as Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Automobile, Finance, Online Retail, Smart Grids, and Healthcare. Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
Through WebRTC, audio and video communications are being embedded more easily than ever into applications, helping carriers, enterprises and independent software vendors deliver greater functionality to their end users. With today’s business world increasingly focused on outcomes, users’ growing calls for ease of use, and businesses craving smarter, tighter integration, what’s the next step in delivering a richer, more immersive experience? That richer, more fully integrated experience comes about through a Communications Platform as a Service which allows for messaging, screen sharing, video...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...
