MPC and Google to join Sohonet’s Cloud Rendering Panel at FMX 2017!

Sohonet are heading to FMX Conference in May this year, FMX is Europe’s most influential conference for digital entertainment and covers all aspects of VFX, Animation, Games & Transmedia.

We’re particularly excited to welcome the experts behind the Oscar-winning film The Jungle Book and the VES Award-winning John Lewis Christmas Ad to join our cloud rendering panel alongside Google at the show.  This panel should prove particularly fascinating for the audience to hear how both MPC Film and MPC Advertising, are utilizing cloud-based rendering tools to reach a level of visual complexity and detail in their work with increasingly tight deadlines. And also how they are benefiting from expanding their compute abilities beyond in-house walls to deal with the dramatic spikes in rendering workloads as deadlines approach.

Moderator: Gary Negus, VP Sales, EMEA at Sohonet
Panelists: David Spilsbury, Director of Technology at MPC Advertising, Craig Dibble, Lead Render Systems Engineer at MPC Film, Oliver Pennington, Head of Engineering at Sohonet, Jeff Kember, Technical Director, Media, Office of the CTO at Google Cloud

After the panel (5-6pm) Sohonet will be holding a mixer (6-7pm) and demoing both FileRunner and ClearView Flex – File Transfer and real-time remote collaboration solutions made to meet the demands of the Media and Entertainment Industry.
