Press release from BOXX Technologies
AUSTIN, TEXAS, April 12, 2010—BOXX Technologies, the leading authority on dedicated rendering and innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects, post production, product design, and advanced visualization, today announced that they will feature renderBOXX and ROW (RenderFarm on Wheels) rendering systems, as well as the demonstration debut of the upcoming BOXXpro (a revolutionary desk side rendering module), in the BOXX booth # SL45140 at the NAB Show 2010 in Las Vegas, April 10-15. BOXX Solutions featuring the latest Intel Xeon processors and NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics solutions can also be found at the Intel, Adobe, and ROOT6 Technology booths. The NAB Show, produced by the National Association of Broadcasters, is the world’s largest electronic media trade show.
“NAB marks the first time industry professionals will have the opportunity to experience our complete line of rendering solutions,” said Shoaib Mohammad, Director of Marketing and Business Development at BOXX. “We listen to VFX artists, animators, and content producers of all types in order to provide innovative rendering solutions that accommodate their unique workflows—backed by over a decade’s worth of expert knowledge. The new BOXXpro is a perfect example of BOXX ingenuity and our commitment to customer needs.”
BOXXpro debuts as a personal desk-side renderer so compact that it easily fits on top of a workstation, while its six-core or quad-core Intel® Xeon® 5600 series processor enables professional performance. The latest edition of renderBOXX features four six-core Intel Xeon 5600 series processors, delivering 24 core performance for intensive 3D design and animation. It also carries the distinction of being the first dedicated rendering system to feature solid state drives for improved performance. renderBOXX is the backbone of ROW, the world’s first turn-key dedicated rendering solution. A triad of hardware, software, and support (from BOXX and Autodesk Consulting) make ROW a complete rendering solution that doesn’t require an IT department. Other BOXX solutions featured at NAB 2010 include:
- renderBOXX demonstrating Content/Agent at ROOT6 Technology booth # SL4428
- a 3DBOXX 8500 workstation (equipped with two six-core Intel Xeon 5600 series processors and NVIDIA Quadro FX graphics) demonstrating the debut of Adobe® CS®5 and the capabilities unleashed by NVIDIA GPU acceleration at Adobe booth # SL3320
- GoBOXX, the industry’s fastest mobile workstation, demonstrating CS5 (powered by a new Intel® Xeon® 3600 Series processor and NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics) and 3DBOXX 8500 demonstrating the latest advances in Intel® Xeon® Processor Technology by running CS5 against a previous 3DBOXX model at Intel booth # SL929
“The combination of BOXX innovation and Intel technology is enabling users to quickly and efficiently create compelling media that entertains, educates, and informs its audience,” said Anthony Neal-Graves, general manager of Intel’s Workstation Group. “With our new Intel® Xeon® processors 5600 series in the 3DBOXX 8500, users will have access to the performance and bandwidth they need to create the most amazing animation and special effects at speeds they have never experienced before.”
