AWS acquires media rendering solution company Thinkbox

By : |March 7, 2017 0

Amazon Web Services, a public cloud infrastructure provider, has acquired Thinkbox Software, a company that offers software for managing media rendering workloads.

Financial terms of the acquisition weren’t disclosed, and Amazon is yet to comment on the acquisition.

Thinkbox, founded in 2010, offers products which include Krakatoa volumetric particle rendering technology, Sequoia point cloud meshing tools, Draft image processing automation, the Xmesh geometry caching system, and a Deadline render management system. Deadline works across cloud platforms including AWS EC2, Google Compute Engine and Microsoft Azure.

The USP of Thinkbox’s software is that it can work with cloud infrastructure as well as companies’ on-premises data centre infrastructure. Undoubtedly, AWS aims to grab a larger piece on the former part to improve the cloud experience.

“We’ll be joining the Amazon Web Services family, and we’re looking forward to working together to deliver exciting customer offerings. At this point, it’s still business as usual for us. We’ll continue to provide you, our customers, with remarkable support whether you work on-prem, in the cloud or both,” Thinkbox said in a blog post.

The latest acquisition comes a year and a half after the acquisition of video processing company Elemental Technologies. AWS also acquired NICE high-performance computing software company last year and cyber security company in January.

In 2015, AWS bought online meeting startup Biba Systems, which helped the company to launch Chime, online meeting service from AWS last month.
