Rain Computers' New Venturi Video + Graphics Workstation Is Designed For Indie Filmmakers and Graphics Professionals For Use With Software Like Adobe CS5, Avid Media Composer and AutoCAD

RINGWOOD, NJ – February 16, 2011 – Rain Computers has released Venturi, an ultra-high performance computer designed for video editing and graphic production. Engineered to provide optimum power and mission critical stability for industry-standard software from giants like Adobe, Avid, Sony and Autodesk, Venturi aims to be the ultimate creative computing platform for independent filmmakers, graphic artists and industrial designers.

 To contend with the enormous power requirements of modern creative software solutions, the design of Venturi is focused on high speed processing and media streaming to prevent glitches, dropouts and distortion common to off-the-shelf PCs.

At the center of Venturi is a quad-core or optional 6-core Intel Xeon processor initially developed to power large server arrays. Huge amounts of data are processed with the aid of DDR3 triple channel memory and then written to the new generation of Serial ATA drives capable of streaming up to 6 gigabits per second. A version of Window 7 Pro 64-bit specially tuned by Rain gives the user a familiar interface and guaranteed compatibility.

Like all Rain computers, Venturi further sets itself apart by offering Rain's unique RainCare Encompass Audio + Video Support, a technical support resource for creative professionals. According to Rain, RainCare Encompass "covers the grey area between your Rain computer and the software/hardware you use to make audio, video and graphics".

Rain Computers CEO, Kevin Jacoby, explains that Rain has been excited about this launch since Venturi found its way to the drawing board at their Ringwood, NJ headquarters. "We're really proud of the job we do helping creative minds give life to their incredible projects. Taking the next step with filmmakers and visual designers is a natural progression and we're thrilled for the opportunity to help the next George Lucas bring his or her vision to life."

Of course, the next George Lucas will have to wait his or her turn. Because first in line for the new creative computing powerhouse was the US Olympic Committee who promptly ordered a pair of Venturi's with 6-core processors and a full 10 terabytes of RAID storage for their Colorado Springs video editing studios.

Venturi is available now starting at $2399 through select Rain Authorized Dealers like B&H Photo in New York City as well as online through the Rain Custom Shop. Venturi is coming soon to Best Buy, Amazon.com and more.
