(Nashua, New Hampshire--April 15, 2009) NextComputing, manufacturers of high-performance mobile workstations and servers, today announced a new portable video editing solution based on its NextDimension RVE mobile workstation computer. The NextDimension RVE CS464 is a powerful 64-bit enabled mobile workstation bundled with Adobe CS4 Production Premium and the Blackmagic Design DeckLink™ HD Extreme capture card. The RVE CS464 is designed to take advantage of Adobe's 64-bit optimization features for Premiere Pro CS4 and After Effects CS4. Inclusion of the DeckLink HD Extreme card gives users the highest-quality video capabilities with SDI (3 Gb/s), HDMI, and analog input and output for high-resolution capture and playback.

The NextDimension RVE CS464 will be on display at the NAB Show, April 20-23 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, booth SL6427, marking the first public showing of the NextDimension RVE workstation.

NextDimension RVE is a true high-end editing workstation that can be transported easily to any location. The RVE system accelerates the creative process by enabling critical editing and post-production decisions quicker and closer to production. The RVE CS464 edition is tailored to the needs of Adobe Creative Suite 4, with features hand-picked for professional HD production, such as:
  • Integrated 17-inch wide-screen (1920x1200) display, with additional DVI ports for external monitors
  • Dual 2.5 GHz Quad-Core Intel® Xeon® processors
  • 8GB RAM
  • 64-bit Windows XP Professional or Vista operating system
  • High-speed 1.28TB internal storage array capable of uncompressed HD capture and playback
  • Dedicated SATA system hard drive
  • Extensive onboard I/O, including onboard IEEE-1394a (FireWire 400) port, 4 USB 2.0 ports, 2 Ethernet ports, 2 Serial (RS-232) ports, and 2 eSATA external storage ports
  • NVIDIA Quadro® FX 3700 graphics card
  • Comfortable leather handle for easy portage
  • Retractable tilt legs for a laptop-like setup
  • Durable, compact chassis - 5.69" (D) x 11.44" (H) x 16.8" (W)


The DeckLink HD Extreme card by Blackmagic Design, when combined with Adobe Creative Suite 4 and the NextDimension system's high-performance design, gives content creators the ultimate video creation toolkit "in a box." For example, using affordable HD camcorders equipped with HD-SDI or HDMI output connections, uncompressed HD video can be captured directly from the camera via the DeckLink HD Extreme to the RVE's internal storage, bypassing any built-in compression. The RVE system's extremely compact design allows you to easily bring this capability on-set for green screen keying, effects pre-visualization, and even editing, saving countless hours in post-production.

"By combining the incredible capabilities of our new DeckLink HD Extreme card with the rich feature-set of Adobe Creative Suite 4, NextComputing's NextDimension RVE CS464 solution gives users everything they need to bring the highest quality production values for their ideas, and the flexibility to do this anywhere they need to be," says Dan May, President of Blackmagic Design Inc. "The 3 Gb/s SDI, support of real-time effects, and simultaneous SD and HD playback make the DeckLink HD Extreme card the ideal solution for all post production and broadcast users when working on design, editing, paint, and effects tasks."

With an external keyboard and mouse, the entire package weighs only 22 lbs. and comes with a convenient travel case, so it's easy to take on the road or stow in the overhead compartment of an airplane. The NextDimension RVE can also be easily upgraded with feature options from any of NextComputing's other NextDimension portable system for even more expansion possibilities.
