Pipeline Consulting

We are the digital media experts when it comes to pipelines, infrastructure, servers, storage and networking. StudioCloud was designed to meet the strict security guidelines set out by the Motion Picture Association (MPA), and CDW’s facilities are monitored and managed 24/7/365.

Technical Support

CDW has manufacturer-certified technical resources with over 50 years of combined experience in TV, VFX, games and feature animation production. Additional support services include system architecture and design visualization, as well as frontline software support.

Geolocation Strategy

Studios’ strategy often requires that the resources shift between major cities and CDW StudioCloud makes sure to have render and storage capacity close to our customers for single digit latency and can help move those customer workloads to their other cities as Production need dictates. With little to no change to the pipeline.
