AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - February 12, 2009) - BOXX Technologies, an innovator in high-performance computing systems for visual effects (VFX), design professionals, and advanced visualization, today announced the release of the redBOXX II, the evolution of the world's fastest workstation for viewing, processing, and preparing RED ONE™ digital film. RED ONE™ is the 4K digital motion picture camera that is revolutionizing film and television, while being championed by Academy Award® winning filmmakers like Peter Jackson ("Lord of the Rings") and Steven Soderbergh ("Ocean's 11," "Traffic" and "Che").

"BOXX has demonstrated a real level of continued commitment to RED filmmaking with the redBOXX II. This machine powers our Scratch software to astounding levels of performance never available before," said Jeff Edson, CEO, Assimilate.

The powerful redBOXX II arrives preconfigured with Assimilate™ Scratch Cine® software and delivers 24fps and 30fps real-time playback of most RED ONE camera modes for 2K and HD dailies, as well as processing power to transcode data into file formats like DPX, QuickTime, TIFF, TARGA, and Avid® DNxHD. The versatile redBOXX II also offers conforming and final finishing for delivery to all industry standard distribution formats.
