Axceleon at Second Siggraph Asia

Axceleon to participate on Cresent booth for Siggraph Asia 2009


YOKOHAMA, JAPAN - Siggraph Asia (Booth B06) (December 14th, 2008) - Axceleon, a leader in high performance cloud computing solutions for render farms, computational grids and clusters announced today it will be present at the second Siggraph Asia event to be held from December 16th through December 19th in Yokohama Japan.

"The Siggraph shows continue to be one of Axceleon's most important trade shows. This is our 5th year participating and our second year at Siggraph Asia. Siggraph is really the only event that brings computer graphics and interactive technology professionals from the industry's most respected technical and creative programs, focusing on research, science, art, animation, gaming, interactivity, education, and the web, together." We will highlight Real Flow support, integrated EC2 On-Demand rendering into studios pipeline, tiling/stitching split frame rendering for Maya and 3dsMax which provides direct support for AutoCAD larger image requirements and our newer GUI improvements," said Mr. Duffy, President and CEO of Axceleon.

"Axceleon products save time, money and manpower for companies and in today's current financial crisis and economic downturn the impact of that cost advantage is greatly magnified. This advantage is especially important for small and medium film and game studios. Our EnFuzion3D product continues to be the leading render farm management software solution in the 3D industry. "EnFuzion with Amazon's EC2 provides "elastic renderingTM" within the cloud and changes the economics of rendering by allowing studios and end users to pay only for their usage. This notion of "elastic renderingTM" using EnFuzion decreases the management of the hardware and software stockpile in a studio environment. The EnFuzion render farm in the cloud can start with one render node and then rapidly expand to thousands of render nodes transparently increasing the potential of the render farm within minutes using Amazon's EC2. Our CloudFuzion product further continues our commitment to hide complexity for the artist, brings complete workflow management to the 3D animation ecosystem and allows studios and the enterprise to harness new developments in cloud computing."

"Axceleon has been invited to to participate on the Crescent booth for the event this year in Yokohama and we are pleased to be part of their Siggraph Asia presence. Asia is an important market for Axceleon, especially Japan, and we have added 50 new customers across the region since the Siggraph Asia show last year in Singapore. The theme of this Siggraph Asia is the pulse of innovation and creativity and innovation is certainly what Crescent and Axceleon bring to the Japanese marketplace." said Mr. Duffy.
