HP and DreamWorks Animation join hands, drive innovation

When legends join hands, the result is always extraordinary. HP today announced its collaboration with DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. to create an epic adventure with a new level of visual richness and breakthrough animation of the studio’s upcoming saga, “Rise of the Guardians.” Scheduled for release on Nov. 21, “Rise of the Guardians,” like other DreamWorks Animation films, has been marked as the studio’s most technically advanced film to date.

Derek Chan, Head, Global Technology Operations, DreamWorks Animation said, “Our goal is to push the limits of what is possible in digital animation and storytelling.” He further added, “Using HP Converged Infrastructure technologies, we increase the functionality that allows our artists to create more innovative animation with every film.”


To achieve its goal, DreamWorks Animation uses a variety of HP Converged Infrastructure technologies, including:

HP Z800 and Z820 high-performance workstations, which are powered by Intel multi-core processors.

HP Remote Graphics Software, which allowed collaboration of artists that were split across multiple locations.

HP DreamColor professional monitors, which were used to provide color consistency across a number of departments through 1 billion active colors.

HP Networking supported the studio’s scalable 10G WAN/LAN infrastructure.

HP Flexible Compute Cloud Service, which helped the studio to stay within their data center footprint.

HP Storage facilitated data protection, storing of reference data, and archiving.

HP BladeSystem servers helped the studio to render higher throughputs.

HP Managed Print Services helped DreamWorks Animation to convert electronic workflows and digital images into living, color-rich documents.

Over the years, HP technology has played a major role in creating a number of DreamWorks Animation’s films, including “Shrek,” “Kung Fu Panda,” “Madagascar,” and “Puss in Boots.”
