YellowDog, developers of the world’s most intelligent multi-cloud render technology for creative studios, and Annex Pro, North America’s next-generation Value Added Reseller, today announced a partnership which will fuel the growth of the Animation and Visual Effects industry in Canada and the United States, through the offering of YellowDog’s intelligent multi-cloud CPU and GPU render solution.
Gareth Williams, CEO of YellowDog said, “With Annex Pro at our side as a partner, YellowDog can build on existing customer success stories across Canada and the USA. Together, I’m excited for how we can help North American studios fully realise their potential as they pitch and deliver for key clients.”
Kerry Corlett, CEO of Annex Pro, remarked “I couldn’t be happier with what we have accomplished with YellowDog in a short time. Their CPU and GPU render solutions enables talented facilities a range of innovative solutions, which allows them to compete for new VFX and animation projects of almost any style, on virtually any scale, without committing long-range capital to an on-premise farm. Our pilot testing in 2019 was extremely successful, and we look forward to working with many more YellowDog customers in 2020.”
According to PwC, Canada’s Media & Entertainment sector, measured by subscription revenues, will remain the world’s fourth largest market. Whilst this national media demand is significant, it is Canada’s growing international exports coupled with domestic content that is establishing its reputation as a global leader.
According to a report from the Canadian Media Producers Association, total film and television production volume in 2017/2018 was valued at $8.9bn with $5.6bn received in foreign investment. Leading national and regional financial support in the industry, such as the Production Services and VFX/Animation tax credits, have driven the high rate of growth and established Canada’s reputation.
We partner with a global network of innovative companies to drive adoption of our technology worldwide.
