EVENT TYPE: Panels
TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM

Pixar and GreenButton have recently launched a Cloud based rendering service aimed at the Film Industry. The service is based on the Windows Azure platform and enables studios to use the cloud to render large scale motion picture productions. This is a game changer for the industry as it enables smaller studios to compete with major production companies without the need to invest capital in expensive infrastructure and technical support. The panel discusses the particular technical challenges to support this business model and how long before a visual effects Oscar will be won by a company has no major technical infratsructure and artists that are spread across the globe.
Scott Houston (Moderator) - GreenButton
Chris Ford - Pixar
Dave Nettleton - Microsoft Corporation
Brendon King - Creative Coast
