IBC Amsterdam: September 9, 2010… eyeon Software announced today that global Visual Entertainment Services group, Prime Focus, has reaffirmed their commitment to eyeon Fusion by extensively increasing their worldwide pipeline. This software implementation will also be increased a further 200% by the end of 2010.

Prime Focus was established in 1997, with a small team in Mumbai, and has grown into the world’s leading end-to-end Visual Entertainment Services company, employing over 2,250 staff in India, the U.K., and North America. Prime Focus offers cutting edge services and technology across its sixteen facilities in Los Angeles, New York, Vancouver, Winnipeg, London, Mumbai, Hyderabad, Chennai, Goa, and Bangalore.

“Fusion has been the workhorse of our established VFX pipeline and our new View-D pipeline and I am pleased that Prime Focus has decided to commit itself to maintaining that key relationship with eyeon Software moving forward. Our intention to increase our current Fusion seats by 100% worldwide will allow Prime Focus to continue to provide world class visual effects and 2D to 3D conversion services to our clients.”

~ Daniel Rosen, International Chief Technology Officer, Prime Focus

Continuing to lead VFX software development, eyeon recently released Fusion 6.1, in line with the company’s new OpenCL GPU supercomputing development roadmap. Fusion continues to be the necessary fit for Prime Focus and other multi-national companies due to its pipeline and highly-effective approach that utilizes the powerful, low-cost GPU to create assets in real time. The extensive tool set imports scenes from 3D animation packages and allows for a much tighter integrated workflow between departments and applications.

“The decision made by Prime Focus to expand their use of Fusion as their main compositing software confirms what the team here has strived for from the beginning, to offer the most innovative and efficient software possible.”

~ Steve Roberts, CEO eyeon Software Inc.

Prime Focus divisions have contributed to the production of blockbuster films, broadcast projects, commercials, music videos, and much more. With a strong focus on the Stereo 3D sector of the production industry, it is evident that their choice in Fusion confirms what eyeon has successfully achieved, a VFX software of global appeal.
