Leading Animation Studio Creates Digital Humans with the Help of NetApp MAX Data

3Lateral, now a part of Epic Games, brings unprecedented realism and detail to its "digital humans" technology featured in some of the world’s most celebrated digital adventures. The Serbia-based game studio is well known for pushing the boundaries on what’s possible with their lifelike digital characters. They’re also exploring opportunities to extend these game-changing capabilities as a service to their customers.

NetApp technology has proven to be essential at helping them use data to bring their animated characters to life with exceptional facial and emotional expression. But everything they do requires the ability to synthesize enormous amounts of data. NetApp MAX Data allows them to crunch these massive data sets into simpler forms that can more easily be shared along their data pipeline.

NetApp allowed us to capture the data in a way that we thought was previously impossible, and we managed to drastically improve our data acquisition pipeline with NetApp solutions.
