PipelineFX Debuts Burst License Program for Education

Schools Can Now Double License Capacity of Their Render Farms Twice a Year for Free; First-Of-Its-Kind Policy a Budget-Friendly Solution for Cyclical Crunch Periods

Los Angeles, CA (June 17, 2013) – Today PipelineFX announces that twice a year, all PipelineFX education customers on subscription can double their current license capacity at no additional charge, with the company’s new Education Burst License program. Schools can choose between a one month burst that will start at the beginning of a selected month and a 30-day burst that begins on a date of their choice. With nearly 200 schools already on subscription, the preferred render farm management solution for education just got a whole lot better.

The program – exclusive to PipelineFX – will rectify a long-standing problem for educators, who can predict when their render farm usage rates will spike, but don’t always have the budget to respond to these cyclical shifts. License bursts remedy this by giving schools the freedom to plan for peak periods, like finals, without forcing them to devote any additional resources.

“A problem schools face all over the world is: ‘how do we scale support when our rendering needs go from zero to over capacity?'” said John McIntosh, chairman of the School of Visual Arts. “This burst license policy satisfies that question, and gives us room to breathe in the face of looming deadlines.”

“PipelineFX has always been a customer-first company, and that’s where this idea came from…a customer,” added Richard Lewis, CEO of PipelineFX. “We want to support the animation and visual effects industry, and since schools are the breeding grounds for our industry’s future, we can think of no better place to offer a helping hand.”

Pricing and Availability
