“Netflix Workstations are remote workstations that allow content creators to get to work wherever they are. As an engineer, I can work anywhere with a standard laptop as long as I have an IDE and access to Stack Overflow. However, the artists creating stunning visual effects and animations for Netflix Originals need more than that. They need specialized hardware, access to petabytes of images, and digital content creation applications with controlled licenses.”
Here is a screencast of their remote workstation experience created with NICE DCV for best remote 3D performance on AWS:
“Looking Ahead – We’ve made it easier for artists to create content remotely. However, we are only at the beginning of creating on-demand, secure, self-service remote workstations. We are looking to the future where Netflix Workstations are a platform for technical artists to make their own configurations. Where we can gather and analyze the usage data to create efficiencies and automation. Where an artist anywhere in the world can focus on their art and not on their commute.”
