When sitting in a darkened theater watching a gripping movie, it’s easy to forget about the computing power required to complete what you’re seeing on the screen. Derek Chan, head of technology for global operations at DreamWorks, recently stopped by the Intel® Chip Chat podcast to talk about the marriage of art and technology.
The company brings the world’s greatest artists and technologists together during their pitches. Artists talk through their wildest stories and plot ideas and the technologists find a way to make those dreams come true through technological advancements. Derek believes we’re now at a time when imagination is no longer limited by our technology – but possibly still by cost!
And powering DreamWorks’ technology infrastructure are Intel® processors. Derek jokes that Shrek’s Law means they’ll “always want more than more.” With the newest generation of Intel® Xeon® processor E5 family and software optimization tools, DreamWorks takes advantage of increased performance (the “more than more”) and other benefits to continue to deliver delightful movie experiences.
