Fusion-io says it’s collaborating with many of the industry’s leading entertainment technology companies to demonstrate how the Fusion ioFX can accelerate powerful entertainment production applications at SIGGRAPH 2012.

The Fusion ioFX is being used to boost application performance in demonstrations with many hardware and software industry leaders at the show, including Adobe, ASSIMILATE, Boxx Technologies, Thinkbox Software, Tweak Software, NextComputing, Maingear Computers, Supermicro and ProMAX.

Designed to eliminate data bottlenecks that slow the creative production process for digital artists, the Fusion ioFX enables creative professionals to meet deadlines while exploring more artistic possibilities by bridging the performance gap between workstations and today’s digital content creation applications, according to Vincent Brisebois, Fusion-io director of Visual Computing. From footage capture in the field, to post-production of the film, the ioFX is architected for uninterrupted manipulation of digital content in real time, he adds.

At SIGGRAPH, Fusion-io will unveil the winners of the Project ioFX video production contest at booth #813 on Wednesday, Aug. 8 at 2 pm (Pacific). Project ioFX was created to free artists from creative constraints to tell the ioFX story in their own words.

Artists were asked to create their own 60-second short and share it on the Fusion ioFX Facebook page. Selected from over 60 entries by Project ioFX judges Steve Wozniak, Danny Trejo and Rob Legato, the grand prize winner will receive a Fusion ioFX, a Red Scarlet Camera, Adobe Creative Suite 6 Production Premium software, Maingear workstation and other prizes.
