Dell teamed with Red Giant to showcase its small and medium business capabilities at NAB Show 2013. Red Giant leveraged Dell Precision workstations to produce its latest short film, “Spy vs. Guy,” which was premiered with Dell at the show. The project, directed by the Webby Award-winning Seth Worley, used M6700 and T7600 Precision workstations with Adobe Premiere Pro and Red Giant’s newly-announced Bulletproof software to demonstrate that, working with Dell, independent filmmakers can create Hollywood-caliber content, complete with visual effects, with off-the-shelf hardware for a mere fraction of the budget required by previous generations.
“We chose Dell’s Precision workstations for our film because we found them to be an extremely powerful and reliable hardware platform to run our new Bulletproof software and Adobe® Premiere® Pro; both integral to the success of our film,” said Aharon Rabinowitz, director of Communities for Red Giant. “Dell Precision workstations combined with our Bulletproof solution truly provides independent filmmakers with everything they need to design, ingest, organize, process, archive and edit films with a single laptop and a small crew.”
Furthermore, to maximize the performance of digital content creation applications, Dell recently introduced Dell Precision Performance Optimizer (DPPO), the industry’s first software that automatically configures Dell Precision workstation settings based on the software the user is running. DPPO includes profiles for Autodesk Maya, Adobe Premiere Pro, Adobe After Effects® and other applications, and, once activated, automatically adjusts system settings to optimize performance. Additional features include proactive system maintenance and tracking and reporting of system utilization, helping designers, artists and other creative professional enhance and speed up their workflows.
