Angstrom Microsystems Computers Render the Blockbuster Hits of 2008, “The Incredible Hulk” and “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor”
Angstrom Microsystems Corp. (OTCBB: AGMS), a green computing solutions company, announces today that Rhythm & Hues has used its deployment of Angstrom Titan64 SuperBlade(TM) rendering blades for the creation of the hit animation movies "The Incredible Hulk" and "The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor." The successful implementation of Angstrom's Titan64 SuperBlade(TM) and its contribution to these incredible blockbuster animation hits is just another milestone for Angstrom in establishing itself as a leader in the special effects industry. Angstrom blades are energy efficient computers powered by AMD (NYSE: AMD) Opteron(TM) processors to provide maximum performance. Rhythm and Hues chose the Angstrom Titan64 computers over its competitors because it was better able to conduct significantly more complex and faster generation of movie animations.
Angstrom Microsystems specializes in Green Computing solutions, providing blade servers and workstations uniquely designed for the special effects industry. With both hardware and software solutions to reduce the power needed to drive computing, Angstrom reduces the number of machines required to facilitate these tasks and thereby saving companies significant investments into additional servers at the same time reducing the energy required to run these servers.
"We are excited to see the 'Big Green Guy' and 'The Mummy' brought to life utilizing Angstrom's Titan64 SuperBlade servers," said Lalit Jain, CEO of Angstrom Microsystems. "Using advanced liquid cooling technology in the future, Angstrom expects more successful creative endeavors with Rhythm & Hues and looks forward to an even stronger and mutually rewarding partnership."
"Angstrom's blade servers played an important role in providing the computing backbone for the rendering of 'The Incredible Hulk' and 'The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor,'" said Mark Brown, Vice President of Technology at Rhythm & Hues. "Angstrom's SuperBlade servers based on the AMD Opteron processor provided the computing power we needed for these projects, and Angstrom's technical assistance enabled us to easily manage and expand our growing requirements for the film."
