Dell and Framestore Partnership helps deploy new Montreal Office in under 12 months

18th January 2014
Dell have announced that they have expanded their current partnership with Framestore to encompass the new Framestore Montreal Office. The Studio Facility, financed by Dell Financial Services was developed to help Framestore take advantage of significant new business opportunities in the North American market.

Framestore are a British visual effects company working in the movie industry and are responsible for some of latest box office hits including Iron Man 3 and Gravity. They also worked on the title sequence for the latest Bond movie Skyfall. Upcoming projects for Framestore include both RoboCop and Edge of Tomorrow.

To take advantage of the projects in North America, Framestore felt it needed a base of operations in North America. The timeframe for the deployment of the new site which includes 150 new artists, producers, software developers and engineers needed to be under 12 months to meet demand. Dell supported this as they have done the UK Studio providing equipment including.

  • Dell T3610 and T5610 workstations for day to day work.
  • PowerEdge M610 and M620 Blade servers for graphics rendering and advanced simulations
  • Dell PowerEdge T610/T620 and R320 servers for High Availability Remote Access

Steve MacPherson, Framestore’s chief technical officer said “Dell has a made firm commitment to the professional engineering desktop and we can see that in the build quality of the machines we are purchasing. The Dell Precision T5610 is a world-class workstation that addresses the key requirements of demanding Tier One visual effects (VFX) artists. As we move forward into increasingly advanced levels of simulation and photorealism having this power on the desktop presents a wealth of creative opportunities for our artists. These machines are both powerful and cost-effective.”
