Huntsville, AL --
--MaxVision Corporation today announced that they have received the "Editor's Choice Award" from Design4 Magazine on their new MaxPac 6000 TransPortable Computer. Design4 Editors considered the new TransPortable, featuring a 1.3 GHz AMD Athlon™ processor, to be a "new generation computing weapon" for the highly mobile CGI / DCC Warfighter on the go . . . on a moment's notice."
Like its successful MaxPro 6000 desk-side brother, the MaxPac 6000 transportable fully supports power user applications such as 3D Studio Max, SoftImage, LightWave, Maya and many others. "The product is aimed squarely at professionals who demand serious 3D Image Design and Digital Content Creation, and yet need economical Location Based Computing in the studio, at multi-production sites, at home or in the boardroom" says Bill Flemming, (CGI industry leader and editor).
"Before we designed the MaxPac, CGI / DCC Warfighters had to rely on high-end desktop workstations, with little or no mobility, to get their work done," said Bruce Imsand, President of MaxVision. "Our goal from the start, for the MaxPac6000, was to equal or exceed best-in-class high-performance workstations in every aspect and yet solve the transportability issue once and for all." Now shipping, with professional configurations starting as low as $6950, the MaxPac6000 delivers real-world "Creative Computing Power" with its new family of AMD Athlon™ processor-based systems at a price / performance point that will excite the budget minded production department.
MaxVision has painstakingly combined a patent-pending electronics packaging design, the latest direct digital LCD flat panel technology, and geometry-accelerated OpenGL graphics controllers to produce a new class of transportable workstation for this fast-paced industry. "The MaxPac 6000 workstation, featuring the innovative AMD Athlon™ processor, is a unique product that addresses the traditional transport / functionality constraints of notebooks and workstations computers as we know them today," said Lee Little, AMD's director of field marketing for the Americas. The entire transportable is shock-isolated and weather hardened for the extremes of airline and production vehicle travel. From its fully-deployed desktop position, the MaxPac easily transforms into an executive-style aluminum briefcase that measures 19" by 14" and about 7-1/2" deep. At only 32 pounds, the MaxPac is ideal for creatives, consultants, marketing professionals and other "Corporate War Fighters" in the field or in their studio environment.
MaxVision's MaxPac 6000 series features include a new 1.3 GHz AMD Athlon™ processor, up to 1.5GB of ECC SDRAM, up to 80GB Ultra ATA Drive capacity and up to two 17" X 1280 X 1024 Digital Flat Panel Displays for advanced 3D graphics on the go. MaxPac 6000 is feature rich with two 9" PCI slots, AGP Slot, DVD / CD drive, 10/100 Ethernet, stereo audio & speakers, 2 USB ports, serial, parallel, game port, full-size keyboard, 3-button optical wheel mouse and more. All within a satin-aluminum briefcase you can carry on board an airline.
