BOXX Debuts Personal Rendering Module20 May, 2010 By: Cadalyst Staff
Compact renderPRO unit boosts power for 3ds Max, Maya, Revit, and other visualization applications.
BOXX Technologies has introduced what it calls the industry's first personal, dedicated rendering module. The compact renderPRO can be placed on the user's existing workstation or multiple modules can be stacked to create a desktop server farm.
"Until now, the only rendering choices available were the workstation, which requires endless hours of waiting, or a large, rackmounted render farm, which many artists, animators, architects, and engineers simply can't accommodate," said Shoaib Mohammad, director of marketing and business development at BOXX.
RenderPRO uses Intel Xeon processors to render images and animation created using Autodesk 3ds Max, Maya, Revit, and other professional software applications. The module is available in three models: renderPRO4, renderPRO8, and renderPRO12, with the model numbers indicating the number of processing cores. A renderPRO solution is designed to save time, accelerate workflow, and increase productivity by allowing users to free their workstation from rendering duties while providing dedicated rendering performance.
