What makes CG Channel different from other sites?

• High-quality news and analysis
CG Channel takes you to the heart of a story, summarising the key facts and providing the background information and market context you need to evaluate new technologies.

• Independent reporting and reviews
CG Channel does not accept affiliate deals, paid link insertion, or anything else that might bias our coverage. If a story has been sponsored by a company, we declare it clearly.

• Industry-influencing stories
CG Channel’s stories are routinely picked up by other news sites around the world, influencing the reporting of graphics technology throughout the US, Europe and Asia.

• Part of the Gnomon group of companies
Our parent company, The Gnomon Workshop, provides on-demand professional training for CG artists, complementing on-site courses offered by Gnomon, the award-winning VFX, games and animation school.
