What Is NAB Show?
Cubix at NAB Show 2017
Cubix was thrilled to attend NAB Show in 2017. Along with hosting discussions regard post production workstation configurations, data and networking information and troubleshooting, as well as storage infrastructures, Cubix had a fully functional Professional Resolve System on display for exhibition.
This powerful system included our HostEngine 4U hooked up to our Xpander Rackmount 8 with 8 massive Nvidia GTX 1080Ti GPUs inside. We tethered it all together using our fiber-optic based unit, the Cubix FiberNode. Using this setup, we were able to color grade through Davinci Resolve using 4k and 8k footage in real time, with no artifacts or loss of frame-rate. Thanks to our FiberNode, the workstation can be up to 150m away from the colorist with no loss in performance!
Connect to any Xpander. Supports any full-height PCIe-compliant controller or adapter and NVMe PCIe flash cards for up to 4.8Tb fast-read/write cache.
