SIGGRAPH 2016 | July 25th - 28th, 2016 | Anaheim, CA

"SIGGRAPH is the world’s largest, most influential annual event in computer graphics and interactive techniques: Five days of research results, demos, educational sessions, art, screenings, and hands-on interactivity featuring the community’s latest technical achievements, and three days of commercial exhibits displaying the industry's current hardware, software, and services."

Find us at booth #828!

For our first year at SIGGRAPH, we will be running and displaying our systems optimized specifically for Virtual Reality, 3D Animation and both CPU-Based Rendering as well as GPU-Based Rendering.

At our booth, #828, we will be providing HTC Vive demos on our VR Ready system as well as showing off our workstation rendering capabilities.

Be sure to swing by our booth to talk to us about how we can speed up your workflow. Here are the times that the exhibit will be open and when you can find us at our booth:

Exhibit Times

Tuesday, July 26th: 9:30AM - 6:00PM

Wednesday, July 27th: 9:30AM - 6:00PM

Thursday, July 28th: 9:30AM - 3:30PM

Feel free to reach out and schedule a time to meet with us, we would be thrilled to sit down with you and learn more about your work.

Try Unity's New VR Demo

Among other VR demonstrations we will be running on our systems, we will also have Unity's latest VR demo. This VR demo was developed and tested by Unity almost entirely on Puget Systems workstations!

This demo will be running on our latest, small form factor, VR Ready system powered by an Intel Core i7 6700K and the newly released NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080. Click here if you would like to read more about our hardware recommendations for both VR and VR development.

Puget Systems & METECS: Virtual Reality Case Study

METECS has participated in many simulation and graphics projects at Johnson Space Center over the years. The tools that they develop and maintain are used in many of the training and analysis simulation projects that are used at JSC. METECS was asked to provide a virtual reality (VR) solution at Johnson Space Center for the Human Exploration Research Analog (HERA) facility.

HERA is a unique, modular, three-story habitat that was designed and created through a series of university competitions and was previously used in the Desert Research and Technology Studies in the Arizona desert.

It was requested that METECS provide a VR solution which would allow the crew to go into the airlock and simulate EVA operations, mainly using a simulated jet pack which would allow them to fly around and inspect worksites such as an asteroid or the simulated space vehicle.

METECS chose Puget Systems and our Serenity and Echo Pro solutions to power their VR simulations in the HERA facility at Johnson Space Center.
