(Press Release) Today at WinHEC, AMD announced digital cinema systems based on the new AMD Opteron processor are planned to be rolled out nationwide to power digital cinema in Landmark Theatres. The systems, developed by Digital Cinema Solutions (DCS), will use AMD Opteron processors and Windows Media 9 Series to provide movie buffs a high-quality digital presentation in theaters.
AMD processor-based servers and workstations have been used to create and render special effects for movies including "Men in Black II," "Spy Kids 2: The Island of Lost Dreams" and "Star Wars: Episode II Attack of the Clones." With AMD Opteron processor-based digital playback systems, AMD technologies can now be used in complete end-to-end digital video production and exhibition.
AMD Opteron processors, which natively support both 32- and 64-bit applications for servers and workstations, can enable system performance enhancements and reduced render cycles for home or professional video production. Customers using servers and workstations based on AMD Opteron processors can optimize 32-bit software performance today, and scale to the full power of a 64-bit computing environment running 64-bit versions of Windows XP and Windows Server operating systems when they become available.
