Introducing the Mercury Playback Engine — the completely redesigned playback engine in Adobe Premiere® Pro CS5, delivering dramatic performance and stability improvements. The Mercury Playback Engine is native 64-bit, multicore, and GPU-accelerated to provide an amazingly fluid, real-time editing experience.

The joy of creative play

Be creative without worrying about the ramifications of additional effects and high-resolution content. Say goodbye to costly delays waiting for intermediate renders. Combine P2, XDCAM, RED, DSLR, and DV footage on the timeline; play with the look and flow at full frame rate; and view in real time on an external HD monitor. With configurations capable of supporting more than nine simultaneous layers and dozens of effects, the Mercury Playback Engine makes every production more creative and efficient.

Workflows that work and flow

With the Mercury Playback Engine, you can put two-hour, thousand-clip projects together as easily as a high-impact trailer:

  • Work in real time on complex timelines and long-form projects with thousands of clips — whether your project is SD, HD, 2K, 4K, or beyond
  • Open up to ten times faster on very large projects
  • Mix and match key formats such as P2, XDCAM, RED, and DSLR cameras freely in the timeline, without rendering
  • Experiment with multiple color corrections and effects and see results in real time, even on complex timelines
  • Use real-time keying on multiple clips at all resolutions using the new Ultra® keyer.

Real-time effects with GPU acceleration

Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 requires a 64-bit operating system and works hand-in-hand with NVIDIA® CUDA™ technology. The Mercury Playback Engine uses NVIDIA GPU cards to provide a GPU-accelerated 32-bit color pipeline, and most popular effects have been rewritten to run on it — for example, effects like color correction, the Ultra keyer, and motion control all run in real time.

Accelerated rendering

The Mercury Playback Engine doesn't just deliver blazing performance and a fluid editing experience. By more optimally using your entire system performance, it also accelerates rendering and encoding, reducing the time required to deliver content to your clients. The only thing we can't help you decide is what to do with all of the free time you'll now have.

Mercury brings performance gains on all of the GPUs supported today in CS5. If you're upgrading your system today and want to get the most out of your configuration, nvidia graphics cards by PNY offer significant additional acceleration by the Mercury Playback Engine.

Videoguys Top 10 Products of 2010!

The Adobe CS5 Production Premium software and NVIDIA Quadro 4000 by PNY both earned honors from the Videoguys techs and made our list of Top 10 Products of 2010!

A Mac or PC with a Quad-core processor and a new Fermi based GPU like the NVIDIA Quadro 4000 by PNY can edit multiple layers of HD footage with transitions, effects, chroma-keying, graphics and more. The sheer power and performance of the Mercury engine is enough to make many Final Cut Pro editors switch back to Adobe - especially with the introduction of the Quadro 4000 for Mac (another Top 10 award winner this year). Adobe quickly released support for the Quadro 4000 making it the best graphics board for Adobe Mercury support for under $1,000 and they continue to add support for more CUDA boards and Laptop GPUs.
