Moving Pictures Editorial adds Powerhouse Workstation
Dallas, Texas-January 29, 2004-Moving Pictures Editorial,
(MPE), is proud to announce their recent purchase of an SGI® Onyx® 350, from I/O Partners.
The SGI Onyx 350 is an advanced
piece of hardware that dramatically speeds the rendering process
in editorial sessions. The decision to purchase a SGI Onyx
350, from I/O Partners, was based on last year's move to purchase
a Discreet smoke MXE. The smoke is an all-in-one
integrated creative editing and finishing system that added

experience in the editing field and has worked with fire

"The Onyx 350 has the throughput, bandwidth, texture memory
and connectivity that is needed to keep the graphics engine
running at full speed," Lintner said.
I/O Partners' VP of Sales, Bill Porter, said, "We are extremely
