LAS VEGAS — While Devil & Demon Strategy’s (www.devildemonstrategy.com) parent company Silverdraft parked its rig outside of the South and Central Halls of this year’s NAB, and featured “the Devil’s Playground,” its array of supercomputing technology designed to support rendering for feature film (it was actively working on two projects while at the show), president Ted Schilowitz shared his own company’s mission with NAB attendees.
Essentially, Devil & Demon Strategy aims to deliver high-performance custom super computer capability to everyone, with systems that are designed and optimized for the media and entertainment purposes. The new line includes custom-tuned “Devil” supercomputers and fast “Demon” workstations offer powerful computing capability in small footprints. In this small footprint, the Devil can deliver more than 400 cores of computing power without requiring a dedicated server room, dedicated power runs or a specialized environment. The Devil can live in a creative office environment as a high-powered artist suite, or connect as needed to multiple Demon visual computing workstations to supercharge the users workflow without bottlenecks in data transfer, I/O or processing.
“The Devil & Demon Strategy is a brand new way of thinking at a time when content creation needs to manage and leverage big data files, such as 4K," explains Schilowitz. “The idea is to simplify what was hard and democratize the technology — to make super-fast computing available to everyone. Devils and Demons are better solutions for lots of small- to medium-sized companies. Our strategy enables them to spend money in the right place, on the most appropriate platform for their needs.”
To celebrate the NAB 2014 roll-out, and as an incentive for early adopters, Devil & Demon systems are being offered at a special introductory discounted price.
