Calgary, Canada – PureWeb has received an Epic MegaGrant to enhance its cloud streaming solution for enterprise 3D applications. The grant will be used to further develop PureWeb’s real-time streaming solution, enabling enterprise game creators to easily package and deploy their Unreal Engine Pixel Streaming applications on to the PureWeb cloud platform.
Epic Games, as part of the company’s $100 million Epic MegaGrants program, is awarding PureWeb with a grant to enhance its cloud streaming solution for enterprise 3D applications. The grant will be used to further develop PureWeb’s real-time streaming solution, enabling enterprise game creators to easily package and deploy their Unreal Engine Pixel Streaming applications on to the PureWeb cloud platform. Once on the platform, creators will be able to easily manage those application deployments to massively increase the reach of their content by adding a new delivery mechanism for their games.
The PureWeb platform enables cost-efficient and secure distribution of photorealistic and graphic-intensive interactive 3D applications including those developed with leading game engines, such as Unreal. Through game-changing technology to stream pixel-perfect, interactive 3D experiences by rendering each user session on high-performance cloud GPUs, PureWeb has become a global leader in distributing real-time 3D to web browsers, on any device, with no downloads required. With its Epic MegaGrant, it will be easier than ever for Unreal creators to deploy and manage enterprise game projects on PureWeb’s platform for mass publishing, without the need to share their source files. This will effectively maximize the reach of photorealistic 3D visualizations online and made interactive to better engage audiences globally—anytime, anywhere.
“The validation the Epic MegaGrant is a major milestone for PureWeb, especially in how we enable our customers to enhance their customer and employee experience through immersive web content, significantly increasing online conversions, sales and productivity, while lowering customer acquisition and operational costs,” said PureWeb CTO, James Henry. “Thanks to the grant, we will make a significant investment in our cloud streaming platform’s ability to automatically ingest data-heavy, graphic-intensive applications from Unreal creators anywhere in the world. As a result, we expect more companies to get on board and distribute their ultra-realistic product configurators, training simulations and virtual show homes to any mobile audience, in the most efficient way possible.”
The Epic MegaGrants initiative is designed to assist game developers, enterprise professionals, media and entertainment creators, students, educators, and tool developers doing outstanding work with Unreal Engine, or enhancing open-source capabilities for the 3D graphics community.
The Epic MegaGrant will contribute to PureWeb’s focus on distributing and integrating 3D applications at scale through its real-time streaming platform and expertise in managed cloud services.
