Partner Spotlight: Teradici

15 Mar 2021

Today we would like to shine a spotlight on our IGDA Partner and main sponsor of the 2020 Holiday Cheer Hackathon, Teradici.

Teradici Cloud Access Software (CAS) enables game development studios of all sizes to work remotely from anywhere, accelerate game production and launch timelines, and secure sensitive assets within your own data center or choice of public cloud. With the COVID-19 pandemic keeping most developers out of the office, CAS allows game developers to work from home with security and ease.

 

 

Producing video games requires a superb experience with graphics-intensive applications like Autodesk Maya, ZBrush, Adobe Substance, and Unreal Engine. Designers, developers, artists, and testers need 4K resolution on dual monitors, fluid playback (60 frames per second), precision mouse handling, and support for Wacom devices, including pressure sensitivity and tilt.

Firesprite Games, a Liverpool studio founded in 2012, grew from 5 developers to over 130 and has made use of CAS for freelancers and those hired during the pandemic. When the studio re-opens, employees who continue to work from home will access their office workstation from a personal device running CAS.

“Even with just a 40Mbps home Internet connection, artists using Teradici Cloud Access Software have an amazing experience with Maya, ZBrush, and Unreal Engine running on their office workstation—and can use Wacom devices. When we tested Remote Desktop, in contrast, artists needed a 100Mbps connection to use ZBrush. And even at that speed Unreal and Wacom devices were unusable” commented Chris McCann, a Senior Support Engineer at Firesprite Games.

For over a decade, Teradici has established a solid track record with leaders in media and entertainment, government agencies and a variety of other industries worldwide, powering remote graphics workloads in a highly secure manner. Over 80% of post-production studios that leverage centralized workstations look to PCoIP technology to serve their remote access needs. Game development can also benefit from PCoIP technology signature attributes – delivering premium image quality, high interactivity, and smooth playback over any network.

Teradici’s flexible, high performance remote work solutions support video game development at the studio or from home. Learn more about how to create amazing, interactive gaming experiences from anywhere in the world on their website.
