Puget Systems Returns to NAB 2023 to Demonstrate High End Virtual Production, Generative AI and Machine Learning Workflows on their Newest Highly-Specialized Custom Workstations
Puget Systems Teams Up with Corridor Digital and Vū to Showcase Real-World Examples of Machine Learning, AI Generated Animation and Virtual Production Experiences
Auburn, WA (April 14, 2023) – Puget Systems (www.pugetsystems.com) today announced it is returning to NAB 2023 in Las Vegas next week to demonstrate its newest, highly-specialized custom workstations tailored for virtual production, generative AI, machine learning and high-end VFX and post production workflows. Executives from Puget Systems will be on hand in their booth #N2074 in the North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center to help virtual production and post production studio executives discern the optimal workstation hardware required – down to the component level – to support their virtual production and high end VFX workflows through 2023 and beyond.
Puget Systems has also teamed up with Corridor Digital and Vū to help demonstrate the impact of highly-specialized workstation hardware – to the component level – on these complex and sophisticated workflows.
- Corridor Digital Demonstration: Puget Systems will host demonstrations of the behind the scenes workflows used by VFX and YouTube celebrities, Corridor Digital, for their latest viral animated sensation, ANIME Rock Paper Scissors. In this demonstration, Puget Systems will show how the wizards at Corridor Digital created an entire original animated short using AI technology, and Davinci Resolve for editing and visual effects.
- Vū’s Unreal Ride BTS: Puget Systems has also teamed up with Vū (https://www.vu.network/) to demonstrate high-end virtual production workflows on a rack-mounted virtual production system custom built – and branded – for Vū. The environment for this virtual production workflow demo was provided by Vū and is the same environment being used for the popular “Unreal Ride” hosted by Vū, Epic Games/Unreal Engine and MRMC in the lobby of Central Hall in the LVCC.
During NAB 2023, Puget Systems workstations will be powering Vū’s virtual production demonstrations and LED wall displays in their NAB booths #C8320 and for the Unreal Ride in the Central Lobby.

Puget Systems Recommended Hardware and Benchmarking for Virtual Production
Puget Systems is also offering 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. This updated report also includes the latest performance data on the NVIDIA RTX Ada Generation 48GB cards, which have been documented as the highest performing graphics cards for virtual production applications and workflows.
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 2023, 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.
