At the IBC Show, taking place from September 12-17, 2013, Vizrt will demo its graphics products using HP high-performance and visualization workstations and monitors exclusively at its booth, Hall 7/Stand A10, in the RAI Convention Center in Amsterdam.
“Based on our long, rewarding relationship with HP, all of our product displays and demonstrations at IBC will be running on HP workstations, servers, and monitors,” said Gerhard Lang, Chief Engineering Officer for Vizrt. “HP desktop computing hardware is the proven, trusted solution for our customers’ demanding, mission-critical, real-time media and graphics applications.”
At its booth, Vizrt will be using a wide range of HP high-performance computing products including 85 workstations, 30 monitors, and several servers. HP ProLiant DL 380p Gen 8 servers - with Intel XEON E5 2640 2.5 GHz of processing power, 16 GB of RAM, and a Matrox G200 video card, will be used to run the IP-based Viz Engine, Viz Map Server, Viz Content Pilot server, Viz Media Engine video transcoder server, and Viz Media Engine Online live transcoder.
Of the 85 workstations, Vizrt will use a mix of HP Z820 and HP Z420 workstations primarily to run Viz Engine systems, while 20 HP Z420 workstations will run other systems including the Viz Trio live graphics generator, Viz Content Pilot, Viz Weather, Viz Multichannel, and the Viz Artist real-time 3D modeling and animation tool. The HP Z820 desktop workstation has Intel XEON E5-2643 3.3 GHz four-core processing with 8 GB of DDR3 and one terabyte of HDD capacity. The HP Z420 mini-tower has the XEON E5-1600 or E5-2600 series with up to eight-core and 3.6 GHz processing power. The Vizrt exhibit will also use a mix of 30 high-resolution HP LED and LCD Z displays to showcase imagery coming from Vizrt graphics and video systems.
