Breathe New Life Into Your 12 Core

paul

The DIT House is happy to be offering some of the latest GPU offerings from both Nvidia and ATI.
 
The latest ATI based GPU we have is the R9 280x, aka "Tahiti Prototype" these are the same technology as in the new Mac Pro's D700 series.
OpenCL has made some amazing improvements, so they really pack some punch in Resolve. 
 
We have been able to achieve very close performance to the new Mac Pros, so you can expect to get 90-100fps with Alexa 1920x1080 ProRes 444 to 1920x1080 ProRes LT.
 
(1x GUI, 1x GPU, 1x Node in Resolve, Alexa 1920x1080 ProRes 444 to 1920x1080 ProRes LT 23.98)
 
They have been power enveloped, so you dont need to worry about drawing too much power and burning your motherboard.
 
Give us a call if you want to try one out on your next job.
 

Now For Rental: Red Rocket X w/ Echo Express III Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis

paul

Truly a match made in heaven. Now with the new Red Rocket X and the newly designed Echo Express III with Thunderbolt 2, speeds for transcoding have reached new and out this world speeds.

RED ROCKET X

Optimized for the 6K RED DRAGON® sensor, this product is designed to accelerate the process of your R3D workflow, regardless of resolution. Using Dual DisplayPort + Dual HD-SDI 1.5G/3G for video output, RED ROCKET-X® provides real time 4K playback directly to your 4K display or projector.

Compared to the previous RED ROCKET, RED ROCKET-X processes and transcodes files up to 5x faster. The RED ROCKET-X supports Stereo 3D video output. A redesigned chassis works to protect the card, which uses a Full-length PCIe x16 requiring external 6-pin (75W) PCIe power for installation in your Mac or PC. The new RED ROCKET-X no longer requires or supports the Breakout Box.

Echo Express III Thunderbolt 2 Expansion Chassis

Use Up to Three PCIe Cards with Computers Lacking Expansion Slots

Today's ultra-light notebooks, mini, and all-in-one desktop computers now have tremendous processing power–power that many thought would only be possible in full-size workstation or large desktop computers. Smaller in size and more portable, they're very desirable. For pros in the creative fields, processing power alone is not enough. A prime example is the new Mac Pro®. Proven to be a processing powerhouse and packed with Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 ports, it lacks the PCIe expansion slots necessary to install specialty cards to connect various video and audio inputs, for transcoding data, and to connect to high-speed storage and networks. With the Echo Express III-D, Sonnet has created a solution that leverages the paradigm shift enabled by Thunderbolt technology, allowing PCIe expansion slots to be connected outside a computer. This desktop Thunderbolt-to-PCIe card expansion chassis makes it possible for you to connect three professional video capture, audio interface, SAS or SATA HBA, 16Gb or 8Gb Fibre Channel, 10Gigabit Ethernet, and RAID controller PCIe cards to any Mac® with a Thunderbolt port.

The DIT House is now offering Codex Workflows

DIT House

Codex-Onboard Recorder

This just in: The DIT House now has systems to work with the Codex Onboard Recorder and Transfer Station for Mac OS X. If you are filming a production that needs a Codex Onboard Record or Transfer Station with an Alexa Workflow, give us a call at (818) 253-4DIT (4348). We have spent some time in the last few weeks testing and setting up systems for this new awesome recorder and now they are ready.

Codex On Board Recorder

Anyone who wants to work fast, at the highest quality, using a weather-resistant unit, weighing just 2.5Kg/5.7lb, the Onboard is ideal for single or multi-camera production. It can record simultaneously from two 4:4:4 cameras – for A&B or 3D stereo shoots – or from two 4:2:2 cameras.

Codex Transfer Station

The Codex Transfer Station for Mac OS X is the hub of your file-based workflow. It can be easily configured to automatically provide a full set of deliverables – everything you need for your production and post, from viewing copies to archives. And it can produce them all in less time than traditional systems take to make a single copy.

Alexa "High Speed" 120fps with 5.0 Update Packet

DIT House

Alexa-Update-5-120fps

In response to feedback from end users and the rapid take-up of the ARRI ALEXA camera system on professional productions of all kinds, ARRI has created a High Speed mode that allows the ALEXA family of cameras to run from 60 to 120 fps with Apple ProRes codecs, using newly released Sony 64 GB SxS PRO cards that offer a write speed more than twice as fast as the current 32 GB cards.

The 120 fps feature will become available with the upcoming release of ALEXA Software Update Packet (SUP) 5.0 and the introduction of Sony’s new 64 GB SxS PRO cards. Like the ALEXA anamorphic de- squeeze feature, 120 fps functionality can be activated with the purchase of a license. Each license is coded to a particular camera and can be enabled by copying the license to an SD card and loading it into the camera. Licenses can also be disabled, allowing rental facilities control over which cameras are sent out with the High Speed mode.
