Innovative solutions for video editing, motion graphics, and post production

Content creation professionals are constantly being challenged to find new ways to explore and validate more ideas —faster. This often involves creating content with both visual design and physical simulation demands. For example, creating a digital film character and understanding how the character’s clothing moves in an action scene. Unfortunately, the design process has often been disjointed, occurring on different systems or at different times.

Safe Harbor's NVIDIA Maximus-powered TSUNAMI workstations combine the visualization and interactive design capability of NVIDIA Quadro® GPUs and the high-performance computing power of NVIDIA Tesla® GPUs into a single workstation. Tesla companion processors automatically perform the heavy lifting of photorealistic rendering or engineering simulation computation. This frees up CPU resources for the work they are best suited for – I/O, running the operating system and multi-tasking – and also allows the Quadro GPU to be dedicated to powering rich, full-performance, interactive design. With a TSUNAMI workstation featuring NVIDIA Maximus technology, content creation professionals can perform faster video editing, effects and animation.

    3D Design

  • •Continue to design while renders run up to 9x faster in the background²
  • •Design and render on a single machine without bogging it down.

    Media & Entertainment

  • • Obtain 8x better price/performance³ in Premiere Pro and 27x faster ray tracing with NVIDIA Optix
  • •Edit more layers and effects in real-time.

3D Design


With Maximus technology, you can perform rapid photorealistic rendering of your designs in applications such as 3ds Max or Bunkspeed while still using your system for other work.

2Test consists of a collection of hard surface objects rendered outdoors in 3ds Max with iray 1.2 comparing an NVIDIA Tesla C2075 and the indicated Quadro GPU with the CPU relative to an Intel 3ghz x5570 Xeon CPU with 8 cores rendering. ECC has been turned off for all GPUs. Values shown are percent increase in render speed relative to CPU.

3Tested on a workstation PC with Dual Intel Xeon W5580 CPUs, 16GB RAM, Windows 7 64-bit.
