Orlando, Fla., November 28, 2006 — Aechelon Technology, Inc. announced today support for the NVIDIA Quadro© Plex 1000 Visual Computing System (VCS) in its pC-NOVA image generation system, with immediate availability. The Quadro Plex VCS, the world’s first dedicated visual computing system from NVIDIA Corporation, the worldwide leader in programmable graphics processor technologies, brings graphics performance and image quality to unprecedented levels for professional applications. pC-NOVA systems incorporating NVIDIA Quadro Plex will be demonstrated at the I/ITSEC conference in Orlando, Florida December 4-7, 2006, booth 1439.
The NVIDIA Quadro Plex VCS is designed to interface with standard workstations and servers to deliver advanced scalability for demanding professional applications, enabling the use of up to 8 GPUs per system for unparalleled visual compute density. Quadro Plex also includes support for NVIDIA Quadro G-Sync genlock and framelock technology for seamless channel synchronization, and NVIDIA SLI multi-GPU technology, enabling transparent integration of multiple NVIDIA GPUs per rendering channel, and providing near eye-limiting resolution support in pC-NOVA without a single custom component in the system.
Aechelon Technology’s pC-NOVA system transforms clusters of high-performance, commercial off-the-shelf PCs into high-resolution, multi-channel geo-specific image generators with rock-solid 60Hz frame rate, running an unmodified Microsoft Windows XP operating system. The C-RADIANT plug-in module for pC-NOVA provides geospecific, multi-sensor image generation support, enables accurate physics based sensor simulation without requiring any custom hardware, and makes full use of NVIDIA’s advanced fragment and vertex shader technology.
“NVIDIA Quadro Plex brings COTS high density graphics scalability to Aechelon Technology’s image generation solutions”, said Nacho Sanz-Pastor, president and CEO of Aechelon Technology. Its revolutionary form factor, multi-GPU SLI technology and genlock and framelock support bring features previously only available in custom hardware solutions to the mainstream COTS market.
Visual simulation applications are the forefront leaders of graphics technology performance, said Jeff Brown, general manager of Professional Solutions, NVIDIA. The Aechelon pC-Nova system, coupled with the Quadro Plex VCS, delivers ultra high-resolution graphics for advanced visualization beyond anything previously realized on a standard PC or workstation solution.
