Skyhouse Studios Plumps For Digistor Cloud Rendering

Australian visual effects company Skyhouse Studios has selected the Digistor Cloud Render Onboarding Package and a Digistor Customer Assurance Plan for animation and VFX rendering, via AWS.

This allows Skyhouse to scale on-premise and in-house rendering capabilities into the cloud with enhanced render speed and scalability. Using cloud-based rendering, Skyhouse can now scale their rendering power in minutes to control how quickly they want to complete any project.

“We had been looking to implement AWS cloud rendering through Deadline Render Manager for a long time and began our search for a local vendor to no avail,” said Skyhouse general manager Lydia Grbevski. “We found overseas companies were offering a similar service but it wasn’t convenient or cost effective for us to go down that route. With that in mind we were very quick to jump on board when Digistor announced its off the shelf solution that implemented AWS through Deadline as it was cost effective and easy to implement.”

Grbevski added that the Digistor Customer Assurance Plan then provided the necessary support.
