MSI mobile workstations launched for few months already, now actively looking for partnership in M&E (Multimedia & Entertainment) industry. “MIDA” starts the page! MIDA*, is an animation, which created by Win-Land Multimedia* & Kent ADIP with mixed styles of 2D & 3D images. On 27 July, a 3D holographic projection live show will be held during Fancy Frontier Animation in Taipei. MSI Workstation provides product mobility and optimized 2K (2048 x 1536 pixels) images and contents during the show. It will be one of the few 3D holographic projection performed by virtual and cosplay singers.

“ We spent years of investment in creating original digital content. This year, we expect MIDA and her virtual band- The Evolutionary Voice, can lead Taiwan animation artworks into one of the top animation countries. We believe with the help of MSI Workstation continuous compute power, we can shorten the time of success and bring amazing films to asian animation markets.” said Kent Chang, Director of Kent ADIP*.

Behind the scenes, MSI workstation & Taiwan National Center of High-Speed Performance render farms delivered hardware and cloud computing infrastructure. For Taiwan, it’s the very first time to present a full-length animation feature combine with 2D, 3D, motion capture characters which requires rendering over tens of millions of polygons.

“ In order to make this stand out from many other animation in Asian market, we introduced the world’s advanced motion capture technology, which can process and record multiple characters, objects & large movements. We’ve been worked closely with MSI Workstation team, which capable of providing real-time editing environment that allows us work much more efficiently” said Michael Lin, CEO of Mirax Technology*.

3D animated parts in the film has been done primarily by using MSI GT70 workstation, which featuring NVIDIA Quadro K3000M graphics, Intel Core i7 Processor, 32GB Memory, and 2x 128GB SSD plus 750GB HDD; software tools are Autodesk 3DS MAX, Maya & Motion Builder, Adobe Photoshop & After Effects, The Foundry Nuke. In fact, through more and more industrial case studies and user experiences feedbacks, MSI has more and more confidence in enhancing workstation features.
