Dr. Tom Coughlin on Forbes: Greater Processing Power Enables Storage and Bandwidth Savings
5/21/2018 03:43:51 PM
Dr. Tom Coughlin, the preeminent authority in data storage products and technologies for the Media and Entertainment market, explores how the explosion of availability of computing power is being applied to optimize storage efficiency and speed. Tom visited with Pixspan at the NAB 2018 Show, and details how Pixspan is using CPU and NVIDIA GPU technologies to lead in this new market area.
Pixspan also demonstrated their VDrive with a PXZ file generated from Maya rendering using GPUs. These PXZ files can be 50-90% loss-less compressed from the original file. While stored as a PXZ file it can be reconstructed as a full DPX file. These files can be stored locally to save net storage space and lower delivery bandwidth.
Pixspan offers unique software products that reduce storage costs and increase transmission speeds of full-resolution media, medical and surveillance imaging. Currently, Pixspan is the only company providing a solution that enables a full-resolution workflow, beginning from camera RAW, to image processing, through to a final asset, with less than half the storage and bandwidth of existing solutions.
