Accelerator works with the Nvidia Quadro FX 4800 for Mac graphics solution to add power and performance to the Adobe Creative Suite 4 workflow.

With Accelerator 2.2 for Mac, users have access to a wider array of output options, and can achieve significantly faster transcode speeds with support for GPU-accelerated H.264 and MPEG-2 video decoding, processing and encoding. The Accelerator is a plug-in for Premiere Pro CS4 and is designed to work with the Quadro FX 4800 for Mac’s GPU to speed up the processing and delivery of high-quality H.264 and MPEG-2 video files. Leveraging the parallel processing power of the CUDA architecture, Elemental Accelerator speeds the video processing workflow end-to-end at a lower total solution cost than conventional CPU-only or specialized hardware encoding solutions.

With release 2.2 for Mac, Elemental Accelerator also supports high-speed MPEG-2 encoding for DVD or digital broadcast. The software is easily accessible through either the Adobe Premiere Pro or Adobe Media Encoder application interface.

A trial version of the product is available for download from both the Nvidia and Elemental Websites. Release 2.2 is available as a free upgrade to existing customers.
