showcase agile pipeline solutions for visual effects companies offered by its
VFXnow division at SIGGRAPH 2015 in Los Angeles, Booth 206.
Hardware as a Service (HaaS) model where visual effects companies lease rather
than buy hardware, allowing them to quickly and economically ramp up production
pipelines to meet project needs. Workstations, rendering systems and storage
capacity can be added without long-term investment costs, and with the support
of an experienced, production-minded engineering team.
“We provide the technology a
company needs when faced with fluctuating and demanding workflows,” says GPL
Technologies CEO Brian Terrell. “We deploy it. We support it. If there is a
problem, we take care of it.”
GPL Technologies is exhibiting its solutions at SIGGRAPH. Visitors to its booth
will also have an opportunity to win a GoPro camera.

gives us flexibility, which is what we need most.”
Blum notes that VFXnow relieves the challenges of managing complex IT systems. “We remove
technological barriers from the creative flow,” Blum says. “Artists can meet
their creative goals without being sidelined by server or networking issues.”
