Save time and speed up work turnaround time​

With the help of Aura Computing service, you can lift resource-intensive processes off your workstations. This frees up the workstation and the employee for more productive work. In addition, the cloud computing service calculates jobs much faster than even powerful workstations.

Why ecology matters in post-production?

Governments across the globe are urging film and TV producers to adopt eco-friendly practices. The current impact of audio-visual productions on the environment is highly concerning. For example, a big-budget film can produce 1 080 000 kg CO2, and even a 30-minute TV episode can produce 260 000 kg CO2. 

With Aura Computing, you leave no carbon footprint and pave the way for a more sustainable future:

  • Access a unique, very low-carbon  infrastructure that reuses all IT waste heat in buildings 
  • Drastically reduce the environmental impact of your computing activities 
  • Benefit from a detailed CO2 report on each energy expense item, so you won’t have to guestimate 
  • Get results faster with affordable and transparent on-demand computing power

We will reduce your computing carbon footprint by up to 100 %!
