Synergy for Business
Companies like Disney, Pixar, Amazon and Google all have large multi-computer user bases. A multi-computer setup gives an employe more power and flexibility. Typically a setup will comprise of a Linux or Windows desktop computer and a Mac laptop. Synergy combines both computers into one cohesive experience by sharing one mouse, one keyboard, one clipboard across both computers. This saves time and effort when using multiple computers together.

Customer Case Studies
At their world class technology-led digital animation production facility, millions in digital assets drive multi-million-dollar consumer products with the help of Synergy. Typically, a Synergy-backed desk configuration at Disney is comprised of two to three computers used in unison by a single employee. For example; Linux as the main computer, coupled with a Mac, and also a Windows computer… all driven by a single keyboard and mouse, seamlessly combined into one cohesive experience. There are hundreds of employees working in this way for the production of rigging, modeling, animation, and general pipeline.
Adopting Synergy several years ago, Pixar Animation Studios integrated our technology as a critical and deep rooted component of their systems infrastructure. They use Synergy in various departments, principally in technical animation and for creative directors, but also in departments such as finance. The confluence of multiple operating systems since the company’s incorporation has led to truly diverse support for a plethora of platforms spanning Linux, Windows and Mac. Technologies at Pixar have been developed on all of these platforms, and are combined together seamlessly and cohesively with Synergy. A typical Pixar power user will perform different functions on different operating systems; Linux is used for modelling, then with a Mac the same employee can combine these assets into a scene along with lighting and rigging. Synergy allows Pixar to share one mouse, one keyboard and one clipboard across multiple computers, saving time and energy as well as enhancing creative flow.
Seamless workspace integration is a key requirement at Amazon, given their need to develop software for a multitude of platforms. Many people don’t think of the company in this way, but essentially, Amazon are a giant software house. Amazon employs an enormous workforce of software engineers, and these employees must develop and test across multiple platforms (Mac, Linux, and Windows). Synergy allows Amazon’s army of software developers to work more seamlessly by sharing one mouse, one keyboard and one clipboard between multiple computers.
Multiple platform support has been the cornerstone of Google’s development since day one; essentially supporting all operating systems over hundreds of apps is no mean feat. Synergy gives Google engineers the ability to work seamlessly across multiple operating systems simultaneously. An employee primarily working with Linux can bring their Mac laptop into the mix without skipping a beat. Having a desktop computer as well as a laptop gives Google employees the power of a fully fledged machine, and the mobility of a lightweight device.
