Exploring Remote and Virtual Solutions for Autodesk Maya

Posted by Mabel Louie on August 29, 2016

Autodesk Maya is an industry-leading 3D computer graphics application with powerful modelling, rendering, simulation, texturing and animation tools. Used by VFX artists, modellers and animators, the software helps create graphics and visual effects in film, video games, television and other fields of design.

Due to computation and graphics requirements, Maya has typically been run on high-end, dedicated workstations located on or under the artist’s desk. For many Maya artists, this has created several workflow challenges, including delays in transferring model sizes to local workstations, challenges in collaborating across locations, heat and noise issues as well as a lack of remote access for artists or reviewers. With the introduction of the Teradici PCoIP Remote Workstation Card and Teradici PCoIP Workstation Access Software, these challenges have been solved; Maya artists can now work remotely and collaboratively without sacrificing performance

In our new whitepaper, developed alongside Autodesk, we discuss the technology options and guidelines for deploying a remote solution to ensure a great user experience and includes test results for both physical workstations and virtualized environments with dedicated or shared GPU access

'The Angry Birds Movie' Created With Support by Teradici PCoIP

Posted by Mabel Louie on August 5, 2016

Visual effects can make or break a movie. Similarly, a sub-par computing experience can make or break a creative professional trying to work on those visual effects. There’s a reason why some of the biggest names in visual effects and animation rely on Teradici to ensure performance that matches a workstation experience, with 100 percent color matching and full-HD lossless support, even across multiple displays and under less-than-optimal network conditions.

Teradici has been proud to help support the creative teams of Industrial Light & Magic, a Lucasfilm Ltd. division, helping bring films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens to life, and with Sony Pictures Imageworks to help bring the new The Angry Birds Movie to life.

Bringing the PCoIP Experience to Azure

Posted by Teradici on August 4, 2016

 

In July, we hinted that there would be big things happening at this year’s SIGGRAPH, thanks to our partnership with Microsoft. At the conference, we showed off accelerated graphics applications – including Autodesk Maya – running on Microsoft Azure, leveraging the new N-Series virtual machines, delivered via Teradici PCoIP Technology.

Our show highlights include longtime Teradici customers from all the major studios who stopped by to see what’s new and were wowed by our live demos running from Azure. They had the opportunity to try out Nuke with a Wacom tablet as well as Autodesk Maya from a PCoIP zero client. Customers were excited to learn that they could leverage their existing zero clients to connect to the Azure cloud. And Teradici CTO Randy Groves presented two informative sessions in the Microsoft Theater – Bringing the PCoIP Experience to Azure and Revolutionize Workflow and Collaboration for Large Compute and Rendering Projects.

Workstations in the Cloud - A Beginner's Guide

Posted by Teradici on July 14, 2016

Join us on July 19th, 2016 for an upcoming webinar, “A Beginner's Guide to Workstations in the Cloud,” where we will be discussing how you can leverage the cloud to solve common IT headaches and to create a more flexible and innovative organization. 

The days of ensuring each designer has their workstation under their desk is becoming less the norm. Many organizations, particularly media and entertainment as well as architecture and engineering, are considering leveraging the cloud to provide workstations to solve common IT problems resulting from big data sets, a dispersed and flexible workforce as well as increasing concern for data security. 

In this webinar, Alex Herrera, a senior analyst with Jon Peddie Research, and Randy Groves, CTO here at Teradici, will be discussing how you can develop an IT strategy to deploy and support a secure cloud model, where pay-as-you-go is the norm.

The PCoIP Protocol: A Decade of Focus on User Experience

Posted by Teradici on May 5, 2016

If you’ve been following Teradici’s blog, you will have already learned all about our history and where we’re headed. Now, we’d like to start focusing more on the PCoIP protocol: the architecture, how it compares to other protocols, our history of innovation, and what Teradici has planned for PCoIP down the road.

Topics: PCoIP, Cloud Computing, VDI, DaaS, Zero Client, Remote Workstation, VMware, Pervasive Computing Platform, Amazon Workspaces, Microsoft, PCoIP Workstation Access Software, HTML5, H.264, Cloud Desktops, Blast Extreme Vs PCoIP, Blast Extreme, GPU, Microsoft Build, User Experience, VMware Horizon, Horizon Protocols

Teradici Joins Azure Big Compute Team Onstage At Build 2016

Posted by Mabel Louie on April 13, 2016

*UPDATE: Teradici and Microsoft Azure to turn heads at SIGGRAPH 2016! 


Teradici’s CTO, Randy Groves, just stepped onto the stage with Karan Batta, Program Manager on the Big Compute team for Azure, at this year’s Microsoft Build 2016 Conference and gave a live demo of Teradici’s PCoIP Workstation Access Software running Adobe Premiere and Unigine Heaven on Microsoft Azure. Randy showed how Teradici enables high-performance applications to work from the Cloud with the same rich end-user experience users have come to expect from locally-installed applications.
