To intensify interest in the upcoming race and to encourage viewers to feel a
connection with the top 12 NASCAR drivers in the Chase to the Cup, ESPN turned
to the multiple Emmy^® Award-winning Jump Studios to create a compelling,
entertainment-driven teaser—and to do it with a really fast turnaround.

Using cutting-edge technology built on the Adobe^® Creative Cloud^™ platform
and powered by NVIDIA^® Quadro^® CUDA-enabled GPUs delivered and supported by
PNY Technologies, Inc., Jump Studios came up with the concept, built a
Gothic-themed set, shot scenes using multiple digital cameras and formats,
edited, did color work and finishing, responded to a last-minute change from
ESPN to cut 15 seconds from the 1½-minute piece — and delivered the
high-profile, film-grade quality "Last Chance" TV teaser in a mere two weeks.

"The NVIDIA Quadro, CUDA technology and Adobe Creative Cloud work together
seamlessly and enable digital artists like us to work at the speed of
thought," said Jeff August, partner and creative director of Jump Studios.
"When we had to make the rather extensive last-minute change in our 'Last
Chance' teaser, the tools supported our workflow and let us make the rapid
changes without sacrificing quality or creative concept."

"From a business standpoint, technology reliability is everything. We can't
afford a moment of downtime, especially with a big deadline looming," said
Brian Vos, Partner and General Manager of Jump Studios. "NVIDIA's Quadro
products have always worked flawlessly, and it's nice to know that whether it
is pre-sales guidance or post-sales support, PNY has our back."
