Digital video professionals are always looking for easier, faster ways to deliver great results. For example, working with more video streams and high-resolution camera formats, adding effects without slowing the system, or working interactively with complex modeled characters or scenes that include real-world physics and effects.
Using the most powerful hardware can make a huge difference in delivering the fastest results with minimal production costs. Industry-standard applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Autodesk 3ds Max and Maya, Assimilate SCRATCH, and DaVinci Resolve enable multiple layers of digital effects. These include physical simulations such as cloth, hair, and water, as well as advanced image analysis and video encoding.
Multi-GPU systems address these challenges by combining the horsepower of two or more professional GPUs to deliver both high-performance graphics and parallel processing. This is a truly unique technology that helps transform video editing, effects, digital animation, rendering, and media-creation workflows and helps you realize your final project in a fraction of the time of a traditional single-GPU setup.
Safe Harbor's NVIDIA Multi-GPU-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.
A Holy Grail for this discipline, in other words, would be real-time rendering and simulation–manipulating the shape and movement of objects while in their final forms. Maximus, NVIDIA says, can essentially do that–representing, Huang said, "the biggest change in the last 20 years for such workstations."- Don Clark
WSJ, Nvidia says "real-time design is finally here"
"Maximus eliminates the rocket science nature of using GPUs. It is a layer of code that manages the relationship between the professional graphics application and the hardware. Out of the gate today there are Maximus-enabled applications and workstations. The list reads like a Who's Who in CAD, CAE, and digital content creation (DCC)."- Randall Newton

Perform rapid photorealistic rendering of your designs in applications such as 3ds Max or Bunkspeed in a fraction of the time of a single GPU.
This is a great solution for providing editors with more effects, more layers, and faster encoding while working with more elements in real time.
Digital animators can now realize a significant increase in interactivity for simulations with real-time changes.
