During 2011 and 2012, our main focus has been on implementing a complete digital recording pipeline for Stiller Studios at Lindingö, Sweden. With a feature film draft as input, the green screen studio shooting is made almost 100% automatic and at the end of the day the pre-composited offline media is ready to be delivered together with 5k raw source media.
Python has been the the main choice for writing the pipeline, Maya® plug-ins and other glue scripts which together are responsible for farming about 10+ computers and 15 apps in near real time.
Our online renderfarm RenderNet has now grown to a fully managed/automated service, still offering the personal support from workflow setup down to the final render process.
We are also celebrating 2 year anniversary by introducing 16 new render nodes, based on our own overclocked workstation “TheodenII” each equivalent to a 12(24)-core Xeon system. This makes our farm exceed 1000 cores of raw render power! If that were not enough, our prices has been cut by 33%. We are looking forward to a new existing render year!
Lightcenter/Cameracenter/Gothenburg Film Studios has chosen HDR to deliver the network infrastructure for their studio setup at Hisingen, Göteborg. The challenging solution will require both security and high-bandwidth seamless access to a single shared Internet connection.
We felt the old website was very dull so we decided to make a new one based on a blog engine (WordPress). Our intention is to report what HDR is doing at the moment and where we possibly are heading next.
