Weta Digital wins again

ACADEMY Award winner Weta Digital has scooped another accolade by being named Innovator of the Year by Network Appliance.

The Wellington-based post production company was nominated by its technology partner Infinity Solutions, beating 170 nominees to claim top honours at the New York ceremony.

Innovator of the Year is the top award in Network Appliance’s inaugural annual innovation awards programme, judged by an international panel of media, analysts and academics.

Weta Digital runs 18 NetApp storage systems on the recommendation of Infinity Solutions.

Infinity Solutions GM John Cortese says his company wanted to supply Weta Digital’s visual effects with a zero failure solution during the making of the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Weta Digital won Best Visual Effects Oscars for each Lord of the Rings movies and is now working on King Kong.

Infinity Solutions was named Network Appliance’s Reseller of the Year for Australia and New Zealand last month.
