Silent Computing

  Nisvara Inc. is preparing to selling a high end P4 system that is 100% completely Silent. The retail price is expected to be around $3000 US, but they are still small enough to give personal service. For those of us doing Video and Audio work this is a godsend since we can now work near our computers. Till now several other companies have been trying to use slower fans, acoustic dampening, absorbing and baffling to try to quite computers down, The Nisvara system does away with all of this by using a unique passive design that not only silences the computer but allows it to operate cooler and with increased reliability.
VideoTechnology now has exclusive photos of one of the prototypes and has had some time to evaluate it. Everyone has been very impressed and we can't wait to see one integrated with a high end video editing system
