Atomic Cartoons worker

Challenges

  • Struggled to coordinate over 1000 employees in Vancouver, Ottawa, and Los Angeles, including remote employees during COVID
  • Moving physical computer towers around for employees was cumbersome and inefficient
  • They had strict production deadlines that they couldn’t miss due to a lack of productivity or remote work transitions

Solution

  • Implementing Teradici CAS and moving to rack-mounted workstations for proper power, cooling, and safeguarding
  • Providing artists with PCoIP Zero Clients (10ZiG, LG) to connect to the on-premises workstations

Results

  • Communication between internal teams is easier and more convenient
  • Studio clients were confident because they already trusted the security and reputation of Teradici solutions in the M&E industry
  • Accelerated onboarding time from 2 years to 1 week during the pandemic

Teradici CAS is available for Windows,
Linux, and macOS environments
