Rhintek Inc. Computer Engineering

Incorporated in 1977, Rhintek is a developer of computer hardware and software systems. Priding itself on its technical expertise, Rhintek maintains a low industry profile in order to remain technology-based in its product strategy and development. Known in the PC market for the EMU/470, the industry leader in Data General terminal emulation, Rhintek was also a main developer in the OS/2 applications market with such well received products as RhinoCom and CallerId/2.

Discovering a similarly minded development house in Germany, Rhintek is collaborating with ELAC Technische Software, GmbH, to provide CARA, a first-class room acoustic modelling package, to the US and Canada.

Major contracts include Atlantic Records, Ore-Ida Foods, US Forest Service, Johns Hopkins University, and the United States Pharmacopeial Convention (USP).
