AMD and Adobe Collaborate on Upcoming Version of Adobe Premiere Pro Software to Enable Breakthrough Video Editing Performance Through Open Standards

AMD A-Series APU, Radeon and FirePro Graphics Technology Work Seamlessly With Next Version of Adobe Premiere Pro Software to Provide Real-Time Editing, Effects, Compositing and Color Grading

SUNNYVALE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/05/13 -- AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced its collaboration with Adobe Systems Incorporated to deliver OpenCL™ hardware-accelerated video editing for the first time on the Microsoft Windows platform with the next version of Adobe® Premiere® Pro. This collaboration further demonstrates AMD's commitment to enabling partner ecosystems with cross-platform open standards, empowering Adobe to amplify the editing experience for creative professionals everywhere. The combination of expanded support for open standards and the Adobe Creative Cloud™ brings unmatched access to the most up-to-date and powerful professional post-production tools anywhere.

The next version of Adobe Premiere Pro has been optimized to take full advantage of a wider range of AMD professional- and consumer-class graphics processing units (GPUs) and accelerated processing units (APUs), delivering unprecedented real-time editing with formats from DV to HD and 4K Ultra HD at high frame rates. Now Adobe and AMD extend this advanced OpenCL functionality to creative professionals running the Windows operating system. The expanded support on Windows and OSX complements the already popular Mac OSX OpenCL support available on Adobe Premiere Pro.

"AMD and Adobe are dedicated to delivering professional- and consumer-level solutions that support open standards and provide artists everywhere with the ability to create at the speed of thought," said Neal Robison, senior director, Software Alliances at AMD. "Through AMD's strong relationship with Adobe, video editors no longer have to wait for the rendering of edits, effects and composites -- most everything can now be achieved at high-quality in real-time."

Coupling AMD graphics hardware with the latest Adobe software, video professionals and prosumers alike will benefit from seamless, high-quality feedback. The next version of Adobe Premiere Pro with support for OpenCL harnesses the power of discrete AMD graphics cards and AMD A-Series APU's to enable real-time edits, application of dozens of effects, support for the new Lumetri deep-color engine, and multi-stream and mixed format accelerated workflows with AMD Eyefinity multi-display technology.

From its APUs and notebook graphics cards to professional workstation cards like the AMD FirePro™ W-series, AMD technology works transparently with Adobe Premiere Pro to provide scalable GPU-accelerated editing solutions for inspired prosumers and creative professionals everywhere. The software is accelerated by OpenCL to efficiently harness the compute power of AMD APU and graphics products and achieve up to 4.3X faster exports from a source format with effects to a preferred final destination format for quick and easy distribution and publishing(1).

"We're all about creating the best software possible, and at NAB we're revealing some incredible enhancements to our video editing tools," said Simon Williams, director of strategic relations at Adobe. "Our customers require powerful systems that enable them to work quickly and efficiently. While we already support OpenCL on the Mac, today's announcement gives creative professionals the opportunity to tap into the massive compute resources of AMD APUs and GPUs on Windows-based PCs, broadening the type of accelerated experience they can have with our upcoming software."

Video professionals and enthusiasts utilizing the Adobe Creative Cloud gain a competitive advantage through immediate access to AMD hardware-accelerated features and functionality with the latest Adobe video production software. Adobe Creative Cloud offers an end-to-end, cross-platform tool kit with industry-leading software seamlessly integrated with all the hardware needed to create, collaborate and stay connected.

At NAB, Adobe is previewing the next generation of its professional video and audio products (NAB Booth SL3910.) Learn more about the next versions of Adobe's pro video and audio tools at: www.adobe.com/go/nab_reveal. More information about Adobe's upcoming new video tools will be unveiled at Adobe MAX, The Creativity Conference, May 4-8 in Los Angeles, Calif.

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackI...
Once the decision has been made to move part or all of a workload to the cloud, a methodology for selecting that workload needs to be established. How do you move to the cloud? What does the discovery, assessment and planning look like? What workloads make sense? Which cloud model makes sense for each workload? What are the considerations for how to select the right cloud model? And how does that fit in with the overall IT transformation?
The recent trends like cloud computing, social, mobile and Internet of Things are forcing enterprises to modernize in order to compete in the competitive globalized markets. However, enterprises are approaching newer technologies with a more silo-ed way, gaining only sub optimal benefits. The Modern Enterprise model is presented as a newer way to think of enterprise IT, which takes a more holistic approach to embracing modern technologies.
There is little doubt that Big Data solutions will have an increasing role in the Enterprise IT mainstream over time. 8th International Big Data Expo, co-located with 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - has announced its Call for Papers is open.

Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.

Over the years, a variety of methodologies have emerged in order to overcome the challenges related to project constraints. The successful use of each methodology seems highly context-dependent. However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way...
As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS...
The OpenStack cloud operating system includes Trove, a database abstraction layer. Rather than applications connecting directly to a specific type of database, they connect to Trove, which in turn connects to one or more specific databases. One target database is Postgres Plus Cloud Database, which includes its own RESTful API. Trove was originally developed around MySQL, whose interfaces are significantly less complicated than those of the Postgres cloud database. In his session at 16th Cloud...
