PipelineFX Offers Sneak Preview of Qube! 6.5 at NAB 2013

New Installer Makes Installation Easier Than Ever on Top Three Platforms; Live Demos of Latest Qube! Features In Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) Booth #SL5816

Los Angeles, CA (April 5, 2013) – This year at NAB 2013, PipelineFX will be previewing some of the prominent additions coming to its render farm management software, Qube! 6.5 in the Hitachi Data Systems (HDS) booth, #SL5816.

With a completely new installer that works seamlessly with all platforms and all industry software packages; a zero downtime reconfiguration feature that doesn’t require the supervisor to restart when changing configurations; and the new Qube! AppFinder that allows users to run frames from the same job on OSX and Windows at the same time; Qube! 6.5 is already demonstrating how it will make render wrangler’s lives easier when it premieres in full later this spring.

NAB 2013 will also give PipelineFX a chance to address how a world-class render manager benefits professional storage solutions. Joining HDS (a PipelineFX partner) in its booth will be a direct line to this discussion, as Qube! maximizes throughput from HDS’ high-speed disk storage products and prevents farm downtime that would minimize investments their customers make in the technology. The critical mix of technical support and reliability both companies provide is only becoming more critical as technology-based businesses grow to rely on speed and storage more and more.

“I’m excited to preview Qube! 6.5 with our friends from HDS,” said Richard Lewis, CEO of PipelineFX. “Best-in-class storage deserves best-in-class render management and 6.5 makes that possible right out of the box.”

On  April 8-10, Richard Lewis will cover the advantages of Qube! in a presentation entitled, “Professional Render Management – Right Out of the Box!” Each presentation will be held in the booth’s HDS Theatre and will run from 2:30-2:45 p.m.
