Dell Joins Hands with Marvel Studios’ Ant-Man and The Wasp
Dell says it has teamed up with Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp” this summer. With similar fan bases, the two companies will come together to bring excitement around technology into pop culture. From Ant-Man’s and The Wasp’s suits to Hank Pym’s Lab, technology plays a lead role throughout the film.
“What’s great about this partnership is that it allows our on-screen tech to become a bit more tangible to viewers,” said Mindy Hamilton, Marvel’s Senior Vice President of Global Partnerships & Marketing. We might not be able to replicate Hank Pym’s advancements quite yet, but we hope that the film inspires people to continue pushing the boundaries of what’s possible just like our heroes do.”
This collaboration extends behind the camera, where Dell hardware plays a vital role in creating the visual effects in the film.
Marvel Studios enlisted VFX vendors, several of which utilized a breadth of Dell technologies, including Dell EMC PowerEdge servers, and Dell Precision workstations, as the core infrastructure to provide the immense computing power and storage capacity necessary for visual effects designers to bring the movie’s characters and places to life.
Among others, artists at the VFX studio DNEG, who worked on Marvel Studios’ “Ant-Man and The Wasp,” rely on Dell Precision workstations for front-end operations.
Dell’s Precision line allows creators to edit and create in new storytelling methods. In the company’s Vancouver studio alone, more than 300 Dell Precision workstations are used to create special effects.
