The digital content creation landscape is changing. With global production teams, studios are looking to centralize workstations and applications, to elastically scale to the needs of production without needing to purchase, maintain, and recycle physical workstations. To give artists the best experience, Autodesk is excited to collaborate with Teradici to test and optimize Maya running in a virtualized environment.
The longstanding obstacles of interactivity and latency are greatly reduced with Teradici’s PC over IP (PCoIP) technology. The artist experience is paramount, and a variety of key features are being evaluated for the Maya use-case, such as:
- Tablet and stylus interaction
- Multi-monitor/UHG display configurations
- GPU and disk IO intensive datasets
- Linux support
- MPAA data security compliance
"We needed a virtualization technology that took away the workstations under the artists' desks but kept the creative content secure. Teradici Cloud Access Software allowed our studio to increase the security of creative content, stay compliant with MPAA requirements and use the well-established and cost-effective PCoIP Zero Clients," said Daire Byrne, Global Head of Systems at Double Negative.
"Our new environment is virtualized and hosted on-premises which keeps our office more comfortable and quiet while providing comprehensive support for Linux and Wacom tablets."
