This is weather…

The Univac computer by Remington Rand. Promoted features are the possibility of more accurate weather forecasting, the ability to process over twelve thousand characters per second, make over two thousand mathematical calculations per second, a printer capable of six hundred lines per minute and the system’s ability to check itself for errors.

The general purpose model is shown in this commercial. Three additional models were available: the scientific model, the file model and the punch card model.
