Founded and run by post-production industry veterans, ZYNC is the visual effects industry’s first completely integrated cloud-based storage and rendering platform. ZYNC’s secure pay-as-you-go service provides instant and affordable access to high volume rendering resources, normally a limiting factor in digital productions. ZYNC features a layered defense architecture that encrypts data at all points of exchange and storage while offering an extremely user-friendly interface. To date ZYNC has been used by facilities on over 20 major feature films as well as hundreds of commercial projects for a total of over 8 million core render hours. Supported host applications currently include NVIDIA’s Mental Ray, Chaos Group’s V-Ray, Solid Angle’s Arnold and The Foundry’s Nuke.
