The Company

OTOY Inc. is the definitive cloud graphics company, pioneering technology that is redefining content creation and delivery for media and entertainment organizations around the world. OTOY’s Academy Award®-winning technology is used by leading visual effects studios, artists, animators, designers, architects, and engineers, providing unprecedented creative freedom, new levels of realism, and new economics in content creation and distribution powered by the cloud.

OTOY was founded in 2008 by Jules Urbach (Founder & CEO) and Malcolm Taylor (Co-Founder & CTO). Since then, the company has grown to over 60 employees across four offices with headquarters in Downtown Los Angeles, CA.

OTOY has some notable investors and advisers. Major investors include Autodesk and Yuri Milner. Advisers include Eric Schmidt of Google, Brendan Eich of Mozilla, Sam Palmisano of IBM and Ari Emanuel of WME-IMG.

Six years ago, I predicted that 90% of computing would eventually reside in the web-based cloud. OTOY has created a remarkable technology which moves that last 10% – high-end graphics processing – to the cloud. This is a disruptive and important achievement. It marks the tipping point where the web replaces the PC as the dominant computing platform.
