“It all started when we were trying to find a solution for remote rendering,” said Michel Racine, technical director of Tippett Studio. “We have tried several enterprise solutions from both North America and Asia and didn’t find a logical solution from a performance or price point of view. When we finally got to try out AMPD Render, one of the solutions in the AMPD Virtual Studio suite, we were immediately impressed. In fact, in our first test, we rendered about 4,000 frames using the AMPD renderer on the AMPD POD in Los Angeles, and my team never knew that the server they were rendering on was over five hundred kilometers.”
“Moving most of a studio’s compute infrastructure from under the desk to AMPD enterprise-grade hosting environments have many technical and economic advantages for digital content creation studios,” said Don Bustintechnical director at AMPD. “Tippett Studio is, as always, doing groundbreaking work and pioneering new ways to create next-gen digital content.
