  Product Description:

NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600G by PNY Technologies is an ideal solution for applications requiring unprecedented levels of immersive realism or interactive visualization that utilize Frame Lock or Genlock functionality to choreograph multi-device film and video environments, or visualization clusters for effects rendering, scientific or engineering use.

Frame Lock synchronizes the display channels from multiple workstations, creating a single “virtual display,” that can be driven by a multi-system cluster for performance scalability. Using the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600G by PNY, scientists and engineers can now develop scalable, open standards driven, visualization clusters that can dramatically outperform expensive proprietary solutions at a fraction of their cost.

Genlock (also known as “house sync”) allows graphics output to be synchronized to an external source, typically for film and broadcast video applications.

Along with Frame Lock and Genlock functionality the NVIDIA Quadro FX 4600G by PNY features a revolutionary unified architecture that delivers optimized application performance. Revolutionary NVIDIA CUDA™ technology provides a simplified computing platform for data-intensive applications using a standard C language interface to solve complex computational problems. The reference standard for Shader Model 4.0, Quadro FX 4600G enables next generation ultra-realistic, real-time visualization applications with unprecedented image quality.
