The Sirius Video digital video option board provides premier broadcast-quality video for the Silicon Graphics family of high-end workstations and compute servers. Sirius Video, coupled with the world's fastest graphics, is the first system to blend real-time digital video processing, computer-generated graphics, 3D geometry, image processing, and supercomputing processing. Video professionals as well as novices can use this powerful, fully interactive, general-purpose environment to produce dazzling broadcast-quality video. Its flexibility and power make it ideal for scientific or research applications, which require full-performance video capture and manipulation.
Pre/Postproduction, Broadcast, and Corporate Communications
Now you can use a single cost-effective general-purpose system instead of expensive, special-purpose dedicated hardware for production, postproduction, broadcast, interactive television, and corporate communications. Perform off/on-line edits, composites, image alterations, CGI, digital video effects, animation, character generation, and more, all on a general-purpose system.
Image Acquisition, Processing, and Analysis
Sirius Video offers application developers, scientists, researchers, and medical and technical professionals unprecedented performance for digital image manipulation, data capture and record, sequence playback, colorspace conversion, and live video texture at 30fps with high video resolution.
Open, Flexible, Expandable Platform
Sirius Video is available for POWER Onyx, Onyx, and Reality Station graphics workstations.
Additionally, it can be used in POWER CHALLENGE and CHALLENGE server configurations to provide video server capabilities. The most powerful systems in the Silicon Graphics binary-compatible product line are the Onyx and CHALLENGE family workstations and servers. These systems are based on a highly balanced architecture combining multiple CPUs with high-speed I/O and large memory capacities. Integrated with Sirius Video, they provide the most powerful, flexible, and expandable platform available for serious video requirements:
