Latest version of Thinkbox Software’s high-volume data management solution for rendering or processing information introduces on-demand metered licensing.
LOS ANGELES -- The latest version of Deadline, Thinkbox Software’s high-volume data management solution for rendering or processing information, is now open to beta testers. Deadline 8 introduces on-demand metered licensing, which will work with both local and cloud-based farms alongside existing permanent and temporary licenses. Usage is tracked per minute, and can be purchased and managed round-the-clock via Thinkbox’s e-commerce portal.
Deadline 8 also adds a Proxy Server application that allows users to securely connect (SSL) to and interact with remote office and cloud-based render farms over public Internet without the need for a virtual private network (VPN). An updated user interface with enhanced interactivity improves the monitor experience, while the new sandboxed Python environment facilitates additional rendering and event stability.
