The introduction of the iPad instantly sparked the development of thousands of creative Hands holding ipadapplications for Apple’s hot new device. ABC News was among the many companies to release innovative applications for the iPad shortly after its launch. The ABC News app for the iPad gives users on-the-go access to news and original programming by way of the network’s iconic globe interface.

Within days of its launch, the ABC News App for iPad became one of the top downloads in the App Store, acting as an iPad user’s gateway to hundreds of hours of ABC’s rich video content spanning several decades. So how exactly did ABC format a large video content library for the iPad so quickly and efficiently?

GPU TEchnology Conference LogoPioneering companies from around the world are attending NVIDIA’s annual GPU Technology Conference to showcase cutting-edge technologies designed around graphics processing units (GPUs). The event kicks off today and Sam Blackman, Elemental’s CEO, will participate in the Emerging Companies Summit as a CEO on Stage speaker, discussing Elemental’s rapid expansion and taking questions from conference attendees.

Elemental stays in-step with GPU technology advancements in order to provide the best video processing solutions available. Coincident with the GPU Technology Conference in San Jose, California, Elemental today announced support for the latest generation of GPUs from NVIDIA, based on NVIDIA Fermi architecture. Fermi is the most advanced GPU computing platform NVIDIA has developed to date; its massively parallel architecture enables Elemental to process and deliver more video to more screens, better and faster than ever before. Elemental’s upcoming software releases, Elemental Server 1.4 and Elemental Live 1.1, both offer support for Fermi to significantly improve video conversion tasks and boost performance for broadcast and multi-screen adaptive video delivery applications.

Elemental’s software, paired with a robust GPU architecture, creates powerful solutions that are setting industry standards for performance. Our goal is to provide our customers with efficient, cost-effective solutions and the GPU assists us in getting that job done. We look forward to discussing our GPU-based technology with other industry leaders today in San Jose.
