The Piranha Cinema Story - 4K and Beyond
NASA’s Kennedy Space Center utilizes two Piranha Multipipe systems to work directly with their 4K film scans. Each of the two systems, consisting of dual 24 TB arrays combined with the Nvidia Quadroplex graphics systems, allow the Film Analysis group at Kennedy Space Center to display full 4K film sequences directly on their 4K JVC projector. The two Piranha systems are connected via DDR Infiniband to further expand their compute and analysis through-put.
By using Piranha’s Multipipe technology, each system can work individually or together, to create a clustered GPU system. The system was delivered in September and went online in time for the STS-125 launch in October 2008.
