Fox Renderfarm Has Completed The Annual TPN Assessment Process For 2021!
As your TPN-Accredited cloud render farm, Fox Renderfarm has always been committed to providing fast and secure render farm services for customers and we have completed the annual Trusted Partner Network assessment process for 2021!!Fox Renderfarm has completed the annual TPN assessment process for 2021!What is TPN?Trusted Partner Network (TPN) is a joint venture between two major entertainment industry giants, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) and the Content Delivery & Security Association (CDSA), the worldwide leaders in third-party entertainment industry assessments. MPAA is a non-profit American trade association with the goal of promoting effective copyright protection, reducing piracy, and expanding market access. While, CDSA, is the international content protection association that protect entertainment media throughout the supply chain, both pre and post release. As one of the most authoritative film and TV content protection corporation, TPN assessment is well acknowledged by conglomerates like Walt Disney Studios, Universal City Studios, Warner Bros., Netflix Studios and so forth. !Fox Renderfarm, Your TPN Accredited Cloud Render Farm !Fox Renderfarm, Your TPN Accredited Cloud Render Farm Why do we need TPN?Content and data security have always been a global concern in the movie and TV industry, especially after a serial high-profile pre-release leaks in 2017. Those included the theft and release of “Orange Is the New Black” season 5 episodes from an audio post-production firm and an episode from “Game of Thrones” season 7 that was traced to employees at a data-management vendor working with 21st Century Fox’s Star India. The hacking nightmare continued after Netflix refused to pay the requested ransom. The hacker group The Dark Overlord uploaded much of “Orange Is the New Black” Season 5 online through illegal file-sharing service and kept posting arrogant and even scolding messages online. Huge damage was caused to Hollywood’s major production studios and to the health of the whole industry.Trusted Partner Network (TPN) is a new, global, industry-wide film and television content protection initiative. The TPN program helps companies prevent leaks, breaches, and hacks of their customers’ movies and television shows prior to their intended release and seeks to raise security awareness, preparedness, and capabilities within the industry. It functions as a global clearinghouse that will set security standards for entertainment production and distribution companies. Partners who pass an independent assessment conforming to those industry best practices will be listed as “trusted partners” in the TPN directory. “Creating the films and television shows enjoyed by audiences around the world increasingly requires a network of specialized vendors and technicians,” MPAA chairman and CEO Charles Rivkin said in a statement. “That’s why maintaining high security standards for all third-party operations — from script to screen — is such an important part of preventing the theft of creative works and ultimately protects jobs and the health of our vibrant creative economy.”How does TPN work?The TPN assessment process is highly rigorous with detailed security requirements on the physical security, asset management, content life-cycle, enterprise security, risk assessment, vulnerability management, security operations and incident response, policy & procedures, human resources processes, and most importantly, infrastructure. Moreover, the assessed Vendors are required to do the annual re-assessment every year to continuously improve the security system to better meet the TPN assessment standards. The assessment reports are shared within the TPN platform and can also be shared with existing and potential customers at the vendor’s discretion.Fox Renderfarm x TPNWith the relentless efforts and commitment to build a more secure cloud render farm that better protect the privacy of our beloved customers, Fox Renderfarm has successfully completed MPAA’s Content Security Best Practices and officially become a TPN Trusted Partner!Fox Renderfarm’s mission is to be the best cloud render farm with powerful render capacity, thoughtful customer service, secure data protection and flexible pricing scheme.As a TPN-accredited Partner, Fox Renderfarm will persist its steps to enhance the cloud rendering solutions to be more customer-friendly and also be one of the safest.

Three RobotsBlow Studio“The animation was a challenge because we had to animate about 120 shots mixing styles. We had to invest a lot of effort in this area in order to take forward the project.Another challenge I would like to highlight is the making of a realistic talking cat. Everything required the highest quality to make this character credible. The cat was the most complicated character of this episode and we are very proud of the result.”Spanish animation studio Blow Studio. Upin＆Ipin: Keris Siamang TunggalLes’Copaque Production Sdn. BhdThe technical team of Les’ Copaque Production greatly praises the high-quality rendering service. They said: "We are very satisfied with Fox Renderfarm’s 24/7 real-time technical support, reliable download and upload speed, the user friendly webpage interface, and very simple desktop client app for our alternative option. For example, we have some frames that took 3 days to render locally, and after we submitted to Fox Renderfarm’s cloud rendering platform, it was completed in 2 hours, which greatly saved our time and budget. More importantly, the reliable and quality rendering also guarantees the quality of this film." Katapix Media:Carlos Duque"One of our biggest concerns was render time, since we are a small company and we knew this was going to be super render intensive, so we looked for a reliable render service, tried a bunch, and ended up picking Fox Renderfarm, because their price/benefit are more important, their staff was there for us 24/7 not via email or forums, we actually had direct contact with our account manager and a group of TD’s willing to help us regardless of the hour. It was an overall great experience to work with them and we still use Fox Renderfarm as our sole render solution." The ShipmentThe director Bobby balaFox Renderfarm has provided rendering power with significantly discounted rate for this film which is over 40,000 frames. Bobby mentioned in the interview that "Fox Renderfarm was critical to the success and completion of our film 'The Shipment'. Their customer service was excellent and their render system was very reliable and user friendly.

Mr. HublotLaurent Witz, filmmaker of short films."As a small studio of 3D animation film in France, we need a lot of computing power to show our originality.

Sean Patrick O'Reilly said that he hopes to work with more Chinese production companies to provide more high-quality works for the audience." ShadowPIXOMONDO"As the special effects producer of 'Shadow', PIXOMONDO made great efforts and constantly modified and communicated in the production process to achieve the final result. Fox Renderfarm, which provides cloud rendering support for 'Shadow', also provides powerful technical support for the perfect visual rendering of the film." Boonie Bears: Blast into the Past "There are also rendering machines in the company. Before the scene is rendered, the technicians will avoid the repeated submission and rendering invalidation by splitting and assembling the rendering task. When the internal render farm can't meet a large number of rendering requirements, some parts of the rendering task will be submitted to Fox Renderfarm, maximizing the use of rendering resources to ensure completion in the cycle. Fox Renderfarm can provide a large number of rendering clusters, allocate nodes at any time, and provide timely technical support to complete project rendering on time." Production director Qiang Wang commented." Isotropix"We're thrilled to partner with the Fox Renderfarm team! It’s great to see that Clarisse is now part of their offer.

Unable to afford the repairs to their ship, Stranded and broke, he faces his dark past and difficult ethical choices in a desperate attempt to provide a better life for his daughter.Being a sci-fi film, The Shipment needs a tremendous amount of VFX and rendering.

Fox Renderfarm has provided rendering power with a significantly discounted rate for this film which is over 40,000 frames.

Their customer service was excellent and their cloud rendering system was very reliable and user friendly.
