Sony Creative Software Partners With AMD To Preview 64-Bit Version Of Vegas

Sony Creative Software in conjunction with AMD demonstrated a 64-bit technology preview version of Vegas editing software running on 64-bit Dual-Core AMD Opteron processor-based and AMD Quad FX computing platforms.
The technology preview at NAB demonstrated a native 64-bit pre-release version of Vegas software running on AMD64 processor-based hardware and 64-bit Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate operating system.
“HD content production workflows really push 32-bit computing platforms to the limit. Many performance barriers are removed when you combine the 64-bit Vista operating system, native 64-bit software and 64-bit hardware technologies from processor providers like AMD,“ stated Dave Hill, Vice President of technology for Sony Creative Software. "A software-only solution like Vegas is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the increased memory and threading capabilities available in the 64-bit world. Technology such as the AMD64 computing platform will dramatically enhance our software’s capability to more quickly and reliably help the user deliver every type of project—from simple corporate productions to the most demanding HD feature-length productions."
"AMD64 is the artist’s computing platform, Vista Ultimate is the artist’s operating system and Sony Vegas software is the most intuitive and artist-friendly NLE software available," said Charlie Boswell, director of Digital Media and Entertainment for AMD. "64-bit Vegas on Vista and AMD64 computing platforms promises to obliterate previous limitations and allow artists to create at the speed of thought."
Sony Creative Software plans to release a 64-bit version of Vegas software by the end of 2007.
