It extends the concept of visual computing from a graphics card in a workstation to a connected environment," said Jeff Brown, vice president of Professional Visualization at NVIDIA. "The new Quadro lineup lets users interact with their designs or data locally on a workstation, remotely on a mobile device or in tandem with cloud-based services."
NVIDIA Quadro GPUs are already the overwhelming choice of leading creative and design professionals, who depend on it for their most important work. For the past six years running, every film nominated for the Academy Award® for Best Visual Effects was made with Quadro technology. And Quadro is the choice of essentially every automotive designer worldwide.
"From increased efficiency to new workflow models, the results we've achieved with the latest Quadro GPUs are fundamental to our future," said Steve MacPherson, chief technology officer at Framestore. "The world's leading brands and studios trust Framestore because of our history of creativity and successful delivery, which depends on a technology infrastructure and talent base that has no boundaries in terms of realizing a creative vision. NVIDIA Quadro is an essential component to helping us keep our edge, and gives us the reassurance of knowing the graphics technology our artists rely on has been developed specifically for professional users with the highest standards of reliability and compatibility."
Benefits of New Quadro GPUs
The new generation of Quadro GPUs -- the K5200, K4200, K2200, K620 and K420 -- enables users to:
- Interact with data sets or designs up to twice the size handled by previous generations.
- Remotely interact with graphics applications from a Quadro-based workstation from essentially any device, including PCs, Macs and tablets.
- Run major applications -- such as Adobe® CC, Autodesk Design Suite and Dassault Systèmes SOLIDWORKS 2014 -- on average 40 percent faster than with previous Quadro cards.
- Switch effortlessly from local GPU rendering to cloud-based offerings using NVIDIA Iray® rendering.

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...

We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
