If you haven’t had a chance to see it, you’re missing out on a humorous take-down of the new Mac Pro.
The good folks at Apple say the new Mac Pro was “built for creativity on an epic scale.”
But was it built for you?
In the world premiere of this lighthearted commercial, Nate can’t wait to show off his “real professional workstation.” But watch what happens when his friend Drew challenges Nate’s definition of the term. Be sure to stick around for the conclusion!
Tiered, Scripted Support Does Not Cut It For The Creative Professional
Companies use a lot of words to describe their technical support: fanatical, friendly, knowledgeable. But in reality, we know that in the PC business, most technical support is none of these things. Surely you’ve experienced the headache: the endless “press 1 for this, press 2 for that, please hold” automated answering services with long wait times, and outsourced support that sticks to the script regardless of what you tell them (even if you know their script by heart and try to give them all their answers at once, just hoping to abbreviate the mind-numbing call as much as possible). And when the voice at the other end reaches the conclusion of the script and realizes they can’t help you, they pass you on to the next level where you start all over again. “And whom am I speaking with? What’s your serial number? What’s your problem? Oh, you’ll have to talk to your software vendor about that.” Frankly, outsourced, script-driven, tiered support simply cannot assist the creative professional when they are experiencing issues inside their workflow. The purpose-built custom workstations that BOXX produces (and others attempt to emulate) are complicated enough. But when you install the software our users need to make their living, like Autodesk 3D Studio Max, Maya, Revit or Navisworks, and Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks and CATiA, load them up with plug-ins, setup network rendering, and/or introduce complimentary programs for GPU rendering with V-Ray, Octane Render, or any other non-native application, and things get hairy very fast. At what point is it a hardware issue? Could it be outdated software? Drivers? Failing memory? Better figure it out fast because you have a deadline! Continue reading

George Matos of Blue Marble 3D was sold on BOXX workstations, even before he enlisted them to power the virtual reality in Blue Marble 3D’s EON Icube

Whenever George Matos made the rounds of a major tradeshow like Autodesk University, he was able to engage potential customers in discussions surrounding digital technology—from photo-realistic rendering and panoramas, to full-motion computer animation and interactive virtual reality simulation. His knowledge made him a sought after consultant, but with each new prospective client, there would be that odd moment when he presented his business card which read George Matos, VP/Technology & Visualization, Chipman Design Architecture. The term “architecture” was a bit of a curveball. “We had a good, knowledgeable consulting arm,” says Matos, but because our name included “architecture,” we were always on the receiving end of a funny look that said, ‘So what do you know about this kind of stuff?” Continue reading
