Intelligent Gadgets, Tiger Technology Partner for Collaborative Workflow Products

Intelligent Gadgets and Tiger Technology have announced a strategic partnership, joining forces to provide the visual effects design community with a solution for collaborating remotely on effects-laden video projects. At NAB2007 they'll demonstrate new tools for collaborative workflow.

The joint effort leverages Tiger Technology's stoneGate virtual file management system for visual effects artists with syncVUE, a Skype-based collaborative video review and approval tool. This tool will enable Autodesk inferno, flame, flint, fire and smoke artists to collaborate remotely and in real-time on synched media files stored on Autodesk Stone systems.

"syncVUE has transformed the review and approval process for the professional editing community. It has also become clear to us that the very same needs exist in the visual effects design community--specifically, the need to get disparate colleagues and clients together, from wherever they may be physically located to collaborate on VFX projects," said Michael Buday, president of Intelligent Gadgets. "Tiger Technology is an innovator in providing these artists unfettered access to raw images stored on [Autodesk's] Stone systems. Adding syncVUE to this innovation now provides artists with a collaborative window into these effects-laden files, and they can do this from any system, wherever they are and with a simple Internet or LAN connection."

"syncVUE adds a new collaborative dimension to stoneGate. The ability to not only view Stone files, but have disparate colleagues viewing synched files, sharing their notes, ideas and recommendations over a simple Internet connection adds an entirely new value proposition for the review and approval workflow and extends the value of stoneGate with deeper capabilities tailored to the design community," said Alexander Lefterov, chief technology officer and co-founder of Tiger Technology.

Both companies will be in booth SU14705.
