STERLING HEIGHTS, Mich., March 14, 2024RAVE Computer, a leader in the manufacturing of purpose-built computing solutions, this week announced that it has once again received the Reseller of the Year – North America award from Varjo Technologies.  Varjo, the industry leader in virtual and mixed reality hardware, awarded formal recognition to their top 2023 Value Added Resellers (VAR). Varjo collaborates with a global network of 55 reseller and integrator partners across North America, Europe, and Asia-Pacific with RAVE winning the top honor in the North American region.

“Our partnership with RAVE, grounded in our shared commitment to innovation, has significantly advanced the industrial use of VR and XR technologies, especially in the automotive, manufacturing, and defense sectors. By integrating Varjo’s cutting-edge immersive solutions with RAVE’s expertise, we’ve streamlined complex processes and achieved remarkable operational efficiencies for our enterprise customers. We look forward to continuing to deliver exceptional value to industries worldwide with the combination of the XR-4 Series and RenderBEAST workstations,” said Brandon Turnage, Varjo’s Head of Enterprise Design.

The Reseller of the Year recognition is given annually to Varjo partners who have demonstrated the best possible results in providing support and advice to customers in acquiring, setting up, and implementing Varjo’s portfolio of highest-resolution VR/XR products.

“RAVE is honored and thrilled to be named Varjo’s Reseller of the Year for North America once again,” said Stacey Ferguson, President of RAVE Computer. “This remarkable achievement underscores not only our steadfast partnership with Varjo but also the pivotal role of our RenderBEAST computers in amplifying the brilliance of Varjo’s products. As an Elite Partner, RAVE stands committed to delivering excellence and pushing the boundaries of innovation, ensuring that our clients receive transformative solutions that maximize value and elevate possibilities.”

"This remarkable achievement underscores not only our steadfast partnership with Varjo but also the pivotal role of our RenderBEAST computers in amplifying the brilliance of Varjo's products."

Together, RAVE and Varjo have seen the power of immersive technology transform how automotive and manufacturing industries train workers and design and produce goods.  On an even larger scale, immersive training and simulation has transformed the defense industry, resulting in saved time, money, and lives. 

Varjo collaborated with RAVE Computer in November 2023 to launch their XR-4 Series headset, powered by RAVE RenderBEAST series workstations.

Next week, Varjo and RAVE will collaborate again at NVIDIA GTC 2024. RAVE will feature the new dual GPU RenderBEAST X2 workstation in Booth #1641 for live demos in the XR pavilion of the NVIDIA GTC exhibit hall, and RAVE System Engineer Matt Moy will discuss features of the RenderBEAST X2 on the XR stage at GTC on Tuesday, March 19th, at 12:30 p.m. PDT.  Both RAVE’s demo and stage presentation feature how to implement real-time ray tracing in mixed reality, with the RenderBEAST X2 powering OpenUSD and NVIDIA RTX-based scenes from NVIDIA Omniverse™, maximized by Varjo’s latest XR-4 Series headset for a true photorealistic immersive experience.  Moy’s in-person session will also provide practical advice and strategies for initiating XR projects using Omniverse and the Varjo XR-4 headset powered by the RenderBEAST X2.

RAVE and Varjo will be hosting an XR-4 Series and RenderBEAST ‘Better Together’ roadshow event in RAVE Computer’s Metro-Detroit RenderBEAST XR Zone early this May, focusing on defense, automotive, manufacturing, and health care use cases.  Appointments are required.  Contact RAVE for additional information.
