NVIDIA POWERING GRAPHICS ON LINUX-BASED SMOKE 6

MONTREAL - The Linux version of Discreet's Smoke 6 standard definition online editing/finishing workstation will ship with Nvidia's Quadro FX 3000G graphics cards exclusively. Nvidia's Quadro FX 3000G graphics cards will be used in the IBM Z Pro 6221 Linux workstations used to run the Discreet application.

Discreet (www.discreet.com) is among the first to incorporate the Nvidia (www.nvidia.com) Quadro FX 3000G into its systems. The graphics card is designed to deliver high-end performance in any industry-standard desktop workstation. Its genlock capability allows users to synchronize to standard video formats and house signals for video post processing and editing solutions. It also enables applications to synchronize video refresh and buffer swaps between multiple systems for full-scale design reviews.

Smoke 6 is expected to ship in early 2004.
