BOXX Enhances Advanced Visualization Computing Systems with Addition of mental ray 3D Rendering Software

AUSTIN, TEXAS, March 17, 2009—BOXX Technologies, an innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects (VFX), design professionals, and advanced visualization, today announced that it has added mental ray® Standalone to its line of bundled professional software applications. mental ray, developed by mental images®, is an industry standard 3D raytrace rendering software that produces photorealistic images for a broad range of uses from stylized visualizations for architectural visualization to 3D animation and visual effects for use in film and television.

“The outstanding rendering performance and features found in mental ray make it a welcome addition to our stellar lineup of bundled software options available to creative professionals,” said Shoaib Mohammad, Director of Marketing and Business Development at BOXX.

mental ray offers extensive and flexible options for the creation of visual effects constructed via cinematic 3D rendering. Used by more than ten million professionals, mental ray is fully integrated into 3D software packages such as Autodesk® Maya®, 3ds Max® and Softimage. It also works independently of the user’s 3D software of choice (through a command-line interface) as the foundation of a distributed rendering solution. This mental ray Standalone software version is best suited for image rendering across managed render farms.

“We are thrilled to join forces with a high-performance computing platform company such as BOXX Technologies,” said Randy Ochs, Vice President of Business Development for North America, mental images. “It’s a natural partnership. A 3DBOXX Workstation or renderBOXX render farm allows users to take full advantage of mental ray’s renowned features and top performance, resulting in the creation of high quality images that unleash the creativity and productivity of digital artists around the globe.”

Designed for creative professionals in film, television, video games, and architectural visualization, BOXX Solutions bundled with mental ray are system engineered by BOXXlabs, the research and development arm of BOXX Technologies, and backed by BOXX Technical Support.
