Puget Systems Announces Strategic Partnership with Vū to Drive Standardization of Virtual Production Computer Hardware at NAB 2022
Vū Names Puget Systems as Exclusive Computer Hardware Vendor for All Facilities Nationwide; Debuts New Las Vegas Location Powered by Puget Systems
Auburn, WA (April 18, 2022) - Puget Systems today announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with Vū, a technology company specializing in virtual production based in Tampa, FL. As a result of this partnership, Puget Systems and Vū will engage in a collaborative effort to drive standardization of virtual production hardware for the industry.
The two companies have also entered into an agreement naming Puget Systems as the exclusive workstations provider for the entire Vū network across the country. Beginning with the launch of the Las Vegas location, Vū will be standardizing on Puget Systems workstations for both their artist and render node needs. Vū is hosting a Grand Opening celebration of its new state-of-the-art Las Vegas virtual production facility on Friday, April 22, 2022.
Additionally, during NAB 2022 in Las Vegas, Puget Systems workstations will be powering Vū’s virtual production demonstrations and LED wall displays in their NAB booth #C6746 and on the NAB 2022 Main Stage in the Central Lobby. The official NAB 2022 keynote presentations will be delivered on the primary speaker stage using a massive, 100-foot-wide x 20 feet tall Vū LED Volume and powered by Puget Systems workstations. It will be the largest of its kind at NAB 2022. Vū is also featuring an engaging, immersive virtual attraction in its booth called the “Unreal Ride,” powered by Puget Systems. Created in Unreal Engine, this experience uses a LED wall for visual display and a BOLT X Robot from MRMC for precise motion control. Visit here for a sneak preview of “Unreal Ride” at NAB 2022.

Puget Systems Recommended Hardware and Benchmarking for Virtual Production
Puget Systems also announced it has released its highly sought-after Puget Labs Recommended Systems for Virtual Production report. In this detailed report, technicians from Puget Labs detail key data that studio executives and virtual production artists need to discern the optimal hardware configurations required for complex, real-time, processing intensive virtual production environments - everything from recommendations on what CPU and GPU is best for virtual production, to application-specific recommendations based on users’ needs for motion capture, green screen or LED wall volume applications.
Understanding the demands of each of these platforms at the component level is critical in designing workstations for optimal virtual production system performance. During NAB 2022, Puget Systems will be sharing with attendees key learnings from its extensive research and benchmarking, as well as providing demonstrations of its newly designed custom virtual production workstations.
