Zx10 VE Visual Workstation
SGI's desktop media forge
by Stephen Jones (April 24, 2001)


Silicon Graphics introduced its Windows-based visual workstation for high-quality virtual sets, virtual characters, and real-time graphics applications.

This dual Pentium media workhorse comes in a tower or rack-mount configuration and is optimized for seamless merging of computer graphics and live video, in real-time.

The Zx10 achieves this harmonious convergence thanks to high-quality conversion between YCrCb and RGB colorspaces along with configurable gamma correction. In addition, the workstation can genlock to your choice of an external reference, internal reference, or input video signal.

Combined with a full sample rate Alpha channel and multisampled, scene-based anti-aliasing of CG elements, these advanced feature are designed to eliminate compositing artifacts and produce clean, broadcast-ready standard definition (SD) video.
