I started my career in effects working for them as a coordinator and I considered the experience my film school.
The company was eventually sold to 20th century fox who briefly merged it with their own BlueSky Studios. A few years later it was sold to another visual effects facility, Rythmn and Hues.
Video Image was groundbreaking for their early experimentation in digital effects technology when other companies were still using optical printers.
