BOXX Introduces Revolutionary Personal Rendering System

AUSTIN, TEXAS — BOXX Technologies, an authority on dedicated rendering and innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects, post production, animation, product design, and advanced visualization, today introduced renderPRO, the industry’s first personal, dedicated rendering module. renderPRO is so compact that it easily fits on top of a workstation, yet so powerful that it features Intel® Xeon® processors to quickly render the most detailed images and animation created using Autodesk® 3ds Max®, Maya®, Revit® and countless other professional software applications.

“Until now, the only rendering choices available were the workstation, which requires endless hours of waiting, or a large, rack-mounted render farm which many artists, animators, architects, and engineers simply can’t accommodate,” said Shoaib Mohammad, Director of Marketing and Business Development at BOXX. “Our solution was to make rendering personal—no server room, no IT, and no budget approval. renderPRO is revolutionary because it not only puts dedicated rendering at your fingertips, it also puts rendering decisions back in the hands of the artist.”

The desk side renderPRO debuts in three models: renderPRO4, renderPRO8, and renderPRO12, with the model numbers indicating the number of Intel Xeon processing cores available in each. A renderPRO solution saves time, accelerates workflow, and increases productivity because it allows users to free their workstation from rendering duties while providing true dedicated rendering performance. The latest addition to the BOXX line of professional rendering solutions (which also includes renderBOXX and ROW: RenderFarm on Wheels), renderPRO is also easily expandable, enabling users to create their own personal render farm at their desk.

“BOXX innovation and Intel technology empower users to accelerate the creation of media that entertains, educates, and informs,” said Anthony Neal-Graves, general manager of Intel’s Workstation Group. “With our Intel® Xeon® processors in the new renderPRO, users have personal access to dedicated rendering performance necessary for animation, visual effects, and design workflows.”
