da Vinci leverages the scalability of Aspex processors in extension of Resolve product family

Aspex® Semiconductor, a UK-based fabless semiconductor company, announced today that Aspex customer da Vinci Systems, a leading provider of colour enhancement and image restoration products, has leveraged the “plug and play” scalability of Aspex’s Linedancer processors to help enable the expansion of its Resolve® product line and introduction of the new PowerGrid™ acceleration platform.
Launched last year, da Vinci’s PowerPlant™ image processing accelerator board implements six Aspex Linedancer extreme processors to address the specific requirements of varying post production environments. By taking advantage of the devices’ software-programmable, highly flexible and scalable nature, da Vinci has developed its PowerGrid acceleration platform.
Composed of multiple PowerPlant accelerator boards, PowerGrid has dramatically increased the speed and performance available in da Vinci’s Resolve product line. The inclusion of Aspex Linedancer processors has played a key role in the expansion of the product line, enabling da Vinci to address multiple price/performance points without any significant re-engineering.
da Vinci now offers three new hardware configurations of its Resolve digital mastering suite designed to address specific user needs, whilst enabling studios to leverage further processing power and tools as their business opportunities and requirements grow. Resolve FX uses one PowerPlant accelerator board to provide an entry-level non-linear colour enhancement solution with significantly higher performance than competing products.
da Vinci customers can upgrade this system to Resolve DI – which utilises a pair of PowerPlant boards that deliver a greater volume of throughput. Resolve RT is da Vinci’s top of the range digital mastering suite for non-linear, real-time colour grading and conforming.
This system uses PowerGrid3, a set of three PowerPlant boards, which implements three times as many Aspex Linedancer processors as the Resolve FX product but without incurring three times the investment in development.
