Boxx Technologies' upcoming RTX motion media workstation was selected
by two software developers, Assimilate and Iridas, as the hardware
for demonstrating stereoscopic workflows at NAB 2009 in Las Vegas.
Assimilate featured Scratch running on the RTX, while
Iridas employed RTX to showcase its FrameCycler and SpeedGrade
Available this month as either a rackmount system with 24 SAS or SATA
drives or a desk-side model with 10 storage drives, RTX models feature
a number of hardware RAID storage configurations, says a
representative. The RTX workstation is engineered for high-resolution
motion media workflows, enabling users to review digital dailies in
uncompressed HD, 2K, 4K, and 2K stereo resolutions. It supports digital
intermediate (DI) tasks, such as color grading and conforming, as well
as visual effects and compositing workflows.
RTX will be
offered in single socket (Intel Core i7) and dual socket (Intel Xeon
Processor 5500 Series) "Nehalem"-based configurations.
