Sneak Peek: Adobe Mercury Playback Engine

Adobe has slowly released info on its Mercury Playback Engine since September and now is showing a Sneak Peek of this technology presented by Dave Helmly at Adobe TV. Helmly also notes a "See How it was made" link for a peek of the workflow for the movie "Avatar."

In this video you can see "AVCHD playback and scrubbing, working with DSLR cameras like the Canon 5D & 7D, 9 Layers of P2, Native Red 4K Multicam editing and RED keying [at about 9:20] and ...accelerated rendering for exports. ...Currently, all you need is a Windows or OSX system that supports any of these cards: Geforce GTX285, nVidia Quadro CX,FX4800, or FX5800."
