Leadtek provides Quadro Digital Video Pipeline solutions for digital broadcast professionals.

Taipei, Taiwan, May 6, 2010 –Leadtek Research Inc., the leading manufacturer of professional graphics card solutions and exclusive workstation partner of NVIDIA in the APAC market, is pleased to present a cutting edge solution to 3D stereoscopic production, post production and digital broadcasting markets: The Quadro Digital Video Pipeline (DVP).

Designed as an ultra-flexible platform, the Quadro Digital Video Pipeline is ideal for broadcast and video production houses to easily incorporate virtual sets and effects for broadcasting sports, news and weather. It is the industry's only GPU-accelerated solution for real-time acquisition, processing, and delivery of high-resolution video across standard – and now 3D – video broadcast environments. Developed for single or multi-camera environments, and with full support for stereoscopic 3D production workflows, the Quadro Digital Video Pipeline provides a direct feed of up to four HD SDI video streams directly into the GPU.

Setting the standard for 3D stereoscopic production and delivery through advanced SDK tools and unified drivers, developers can easily integrate applications using either OpenGL or Direct3D programming interfaces. It utilizes the same drivers and removes the complexity of multi-threaded programming to buffer video from devices of different vendors, creating a unified and integrated solution. In addition, video professionals can preview content on stereo-ready displays when driven by Quadro solutions that include support for a wide variety of 3D stereo formats.

This latest solutions include the Quadro SDI Capture Card, Quadro SDI Output Card and Quadro FX professional graphics. The Quadro SDI Capture Card delivers the industry's first fully integrated GPU-based solution for capture of SD-, HD-, 3G-SDI video footage, enabling SDI video capture in up to 12-bit color directly to the GPU memory. This empowers professionals to capture up to 4 HD-SDI single link sources simultaneously and supports all SMPTE standard formats. For the output result, Quadro SDI Output Card allows professionals to preview the results of 3D compositing, editing and color grading in real time on high definition broadcast monitors. This graphics-to-video-out solution delivers uncompressed 8-, 10-, or 12-bit SDI from programmable graphics, enabling a direct connection to broadcast monitors, switchers, tape decks, or SDI projectors. Professionals can take inspiration even further with Quadro FX SDI-enabled solutions, featuring NVIDIA® SLI® technology and the NVIDIA® CUDA™ parallel computing architecture. As a tightly integrated solution, the Digital Video Pipeline delivers a power efficient, full featured, ultimate performance experience to digital broadcast professionals.
