Jeff Bell, CEO of Tangent Labs, will present a unique Studio Customer story highlighting their evolution of the digital creative workflow, leveraging HPC in the cloud. A company with a strong focus on the creative community, is embracing Blender for production film making. This includes high fidelity animation films for Netflix and others using Intel’s oneAPI Rendering Toolkit resulting in reducing film production time to market where functions that once took days now takes hours delivering predictable rendering times. Tangent now can deliver predictable films in budget and with the highest fidelity quality. Tangent and Intel’s close collaboration influences what Blender brings to market as an open source solution the film animation industry.

In late 2020 Tangent Labs released their fresh take on a cloud-based digital production pipeline LoUPE, initially developed for use by sister company Tangent Animation to address challenges faced by the community for years delivered on the AWS Studio Cloud. Remote collaboration has never been a more timely topic, and LoUPE advances the traditional on-premise production workflow by seamlessly facilitating collaboration between studio locations and freelancers around the globe. Data is securely stored in the cloud, with intelligent transit between locations ensuring sync.

Tangent Labs and Intel share a vision of providing improvements for creators, with LoUPE focused on the creative workflow and working closely with Intel on their advancements in Visualization development and Intel’s oneAPI Render Toolkit, which will be discussed.
