ELSA GLoria™ II
The graphics solution for high-end professional graphics applications
The ELSA GLoria II brings the "kick inside" for high-end 3D applications. The latest top-class solution from ELSA is aimed at the
demanding markets for high-end 3D CAD applications, visualization, animation and digital content creation. The board features the
workstation GPU Quadro from NVIDIA with its 350-MHz RAMDAC and 64-MB unified memory. Even resolutions as high as 2048 x
1536 can be ergonomically displayed at 85 Hz in 3D TrueColor. This makes the GLoria II the right choice for all those who demand
no-compromise 3D performance. Currently in preparation is the support of the increasingly popular shutter glasses (e.g.
ELSA 3D REVELATOR). The glasses allow the highly effective, stereoscopic 3D display of all OpenGL applications and so open up a
completely new dimension in the construction and presentation of 3D objects and animations. This function is an integral part of
the ELSA Software Advantage, a package including graphics driver, application drivers and utilities that is supplied as standard
and is always available in the latest version as a download via Internet.
