We recognised our need and realised that the Intel solution worked best while providing greater cost-performance benefits. Intel''s solution was the technology differentiator," said Rajesh Turakhia, CEO of Maya Entertainment.

"Film studios across the world have recognised the importance of special effects and digital animation in the movies. Growth estimates of the worldwide animation industry are at $50-70 billion by 2005 and the Indian market slice will also grow considerably. Indian companies have won some US$150 million to $US 200 million in business, and leaders in the Indian industry like Maya Entertainment are turning to innovative IT solutions to differentiate themselves. Intel''s solution provides Maya Entertainment with the difference in performance it needs," says Shrikant Patil, director of solutions, Intel Technology India.
