FRAME THROWER HELPS LAIKA STREAMLINE REVIEW & APPROVAL Frame Thrower ( is a network attached realtime playback system for film and HD content. The turnkey hardware and software system allows multiple users to simply load frames into the solution using a web browser on their workstation. Frame Thrower provides administration tools over its Web interface to easily manage the system and disk space. It also reads frame-based images and audio from either Windows, Macintosh, or Unix file servers using gigabit ethernet.  

According to Laika director of R&D, John Pierson, the studio had initially considered building its own solution, but realized Frame thrower came in at a lower cost and met their needs. Artists at the studio are pleased with the system's jog/shuttle control panel.
