At the upcoming 17th Industrial Virtual Reality Expo at Tokyo Big-Sight (June 24-26), ELSA will be demonstrating a new External PCI-Express Remote 3D Graphic Solution. The demo uses the ELSA Vridge X100 Quad 8 PCI-Express extension system powered by Lucid’s Hydra 100 to enable high-quality 3D graphics and HD video to be streamed remotely through an IP network using Teradici’s PC-over-IP technology. In a single Vridge system you can install two NVidia Quadro fX5800′s and 2 ELSA VIXEL H200 remote host cards. Ironically, the demo will be in the SGI Japan Booth (23-14).
The goal is to create super-powered workstations that can be centrally located in single datacenter, with displays remotely provided over LAN or high-latency WAN links to users.
