NEW DELHI: As film studios across the world recognise the importance of special effects and digital animation,the worldwide animation industry is expected to grow to $ 50-70 billion by 2005.

Indian companies which have already won $150 million-$200 million in business are gradually developing an appetite for high-end IT solutions which to get that cutting-edge and achieve state-of-the-art standards.

One such company, Maya Entertainment Ltd has deployed Intel's latest Xeon processors to create a powerful computer platform to meet its high-end computing needs, says an Intel company press release here today.

Maya Entertainment, a leading provider of high end 3D animation and visual effects is currently working on an animated Christmas special of Jack Frost for the BBC, special projects for Nickelodeon and also for leading US toy manufacturers and gaming companies.

With animation projects becoming increasingly complex and quality oriented, Maya Entertainment's rendering requirements have grown multifold resulting in a substantial need for computing power using the latest available server platforms, to create a render farm.
