From the movie Kung Fu Panda 2
HP and DreamWorks Animation have united once again to create the studio‘s actionpacked 3-D film ―Kung Fu Panda 2,‖ which is now playing in cinemas across the UAE. For ultimate performance, production artists at DreamWorks Animation relied on powerful HP Z800 Workstations to achieve industry firsts while designing everything from whirling water and lush green lands to battle scenes filled with thousands of kung fu characters.
For more than a decade, HP and DreamWorks Animation have worked side by side to create revolutionary technology that has helped craf eye-popping, heart-racing and awe-inspiring animation features like the ―Shrek― series, ―How to Train Your Dragon,‖ ―Megamind,‖ ―Kung Fu Panda‖ and now ―Kung Fu Panda 2.‖ In ―Kung Fu Panda 2,‖ Po is now living his dream as The Dragon Warrior, protecting the Valley of Peace alongside his friends and fellow kung fu masters, The Furious Five. Po‘s new life of awesomeness is threatened by the emergence of a formidable villain, who plans to use a secret, unstoppable weapon to conquer China and destroy kung fu. Po must look to his past and uncover the secrets of his mysterious origins; only then will he be able to unlock the strength he needs to succeed.
HP‘s high-performance workstations have been fine-tuned to meet the detailed and demanding creative needs of DreamWorks Animation. The HP Z800 Workstations are significantly faster – as much as 50 percent for some applications – than their predecessors and are the workstation of choice for many studios around the world. The additional high-speed Intel dual core processors, memory and option drives enable artists to effectively work on multiple shots concurrently and far more interactively than before.
