The lab comprises a 4K screening theater, as well as multiple creative bays running professional systems for post-production and rendering workflows for 3D animation, VFX, Digital Intermediate (DI) and finishing, as well as VR content creation for platforms such as Oculus Rift.
The SC3 will give content creators first-hand experience with state-of-the-art workflow tools typically associated with high-end facilities, while enhancing the quality and production value of their projects and decreasing turnaround times.
The SC3 will also serve as a showcase for Silverdraft technologies, where artist feedback will go directly into the pipeline for future product development. Each of SC3’s creative bays will contain a combination of Silverdraft Devil and Demon supercomputers and workstations featuring high-performance Micron components. Meanwhile, all artists will have access to the shared 4K screening room. The Silverdraft team will collaborate with artists as they create their projects.
The SC3 is to open in the fall of 2015.
