The Industrial Light & Magic case study is available here for an in-depth look at the company’s successful deployment of full-fidelity remote computing to creative teams in San Francisco, Singapore, and Vancouver to achieve the following results:

  • Greater flexibility and mobility: Remote viewing of dailies speeds reviews and lets distributed teams collaborate from anywhere.
  • Enhanced security: Consolidation of file servers, render farms, and storage arrays in the data center ensures IT can maintain control of creative assets, without restricting artists’ work.
  • High-level performance: PCoIP remote display protocol compresses, encodes, and delivers the entire workstation experience from the data center to the end user in full-fidelity (full frame rate and access to 3D/HD media).
  • Simplicity: Reduce heat and noise with easy-to-deploy PCoIP Zero Clients.

Industrial Light & Magic, a Lucasfilm, Ltd. company, has created visual effects for nearly 300 feature films including 10 of the top 15 box office hits of all time, and half of the top 50. ILM has earned 15 Academy Awards® for Best Visual Effects and 23 Scientific and Technical Achievement Awards.

About the Teradici PCoIP Remote Workstation Solutions for Media & Entertainment

For more than seven years, Teradici has carved out a leadership position with its flagship PCoIP Remote Workstation solutions, enabling workstations under-the-desk or in the data center to transmit high resolution, full-frame-rate 3D graphics and HD media to remote users around the globe.

The “who’s who” in media and entertainment companies count on Teradici remote workstation solutions throughout the design and production process for award-winning special visual effects and motion graphics for film, episodic TV, commercials, interactive web and gaming. Remote computing with Teradici optimizes creativity and innovation among artists, editors, producers and animators – all within a secure IT environment.

The PCoIP remote display technology resolves the challenges of managing, maintaining and securing enterprise workstations through a chipset that compresses and encodes the entire workstation experience. Pixels are then transmitted over a standard IP network to stateless Zero Client devices for better performance or Teradici PCoIP Software client for greater flexibility. PCoIP solutions offer a high-fidelity workstation experience to the end user while increasing collaboration, productivity and security.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
