Strong growth in 2020 continues in 2021 as gaming and virtual production studios meet increased customer demand with highly efficient, increasingly distributed work and collaboration techniques that are now part of the new normal.
Minneapolis, MN, June 7, 2021 — Perforce Software, (“Perforce”), a provider of DevOps solutions to enterprise teams requiring productivity, visibility, and scale along the development lifecycle, announced that its Helix branded asset management business is continuing to experience record growth in the gaming and virtual production verticals as teams ramp up production to meet increased customer demand.
During the pandemic, traditional film and television studios were unable to operate as normal, causing delays in many major productions. Many projects turned to virtual production methods to keep their projects on time and deliver new content for high demand outlets such as streaming services. At the same time, 55% of people turned to video games for entertainment during lockdowns. This led to an increased demand for solutions that could support increased collaboration with security and scale to meet customer demand.
Helix Core, used by leading projects and studios to provide secure asset management and team collaboration for projects of any size, grew its virtual production and gaming vertical by 50% in 2020. Pandemic expansion drove the number of Helix Core customers to over 4,000 across the globe.
