Our close relationships with Microsoft Azure, Nvidia, Teradici, Pixit Media, AMD and other key tech companies has enabled Jellyfish Pictures to achieve its vision in becoming one of the most technologically innovative companies in the world. With more than 280 artists working remotely around the globe, our crew experience the same performance and playback just as they would in the studio. Connecting to our tier one datacentre via Teradici’s PCoIP Ultra, no data ever leaves the Jellyfish Pictures infrastructure meaning there is no way data can be passed on, downloaded or accessed, remaining fully TPN compliant.

Thanks to introducing RV and PCoIP Ultra into our pipeline, our clients experience secure and smooth reviews, wherever they are based around the globe, with seamless 4K playback.

Jellyfish Pictures is a standout player in an incredibly creative, competitive and fast paced industry. Through their adoption of Microsoft Azure High-Performance Computing (HPC), Jellyfish is gaining a significant advantage by being able to bid on bigger jobs, better meet deadlines - all while reducing their capital and labour costs.

We are able to break through the fourth wall with our on-demand burst rendering to the cloud, providing us with the capability to render an infinite number of frames, scale up and down to meet our needs with our virtual studios and workstations and collaborate with the world’s best artists wherever they are based.

In addition to working in the cloud, Jellyfish Pictures is utilising the power of Unreal Engine and real time rendering. With in-house specialists helping to research, develop, test and integrate the software, we are fully exploiting its capabilities, leading to a more streamlined and seamless feedback with clients.
