Catalyst is making 
Virtual Production easier.

Catalyst is a modern Virtual Production platform centered around deploying industry-standard tools in a centralized infrastructure. Our system is designed to eliminate the technical barrier-of-entry to Virtual Production, by offering a turn-key foundation that combines existing production pipelines & fundamentals with a powerful cloud-native architecture.

We believe that offering studios a common bed of technological capabilities to base their workflows on will level the playing field for smaller VP studios, as well as unlock its potential for larger studios.

Catalyst will enable a renewed focus on the creative process by supporting the technology that artists are already familiar with in a streamlined solution.

Stage Controller

A workflow appliance for powering the entire production. Core VP services are always on and available along with UE Editor/Stage Control access.

Render Cluster

Rendering workloads are condensed into a single box by utilizing Virtual Machines and Containers. With up to 4x 4k outputs per-server and a powerful dual-CPU architecture, rendering achieves maximum performance.

Shared Storage

Optimized network storage for projects, footage, & assets. Built-in version control keeps files in one place, and the ZFS file system provides instant snapshotting of files or entire datasets.

Dedicated Network

An isolated network ensures smooth communication between nodes and resources.

Simplifying the Virtual Production stage.

Catalyst updates the typical stage design into 2022, taking full advantage of today’s technology while streamlining the VP infrastructure.

A growing ecosystem.

Equipped with an arsenal of tools both new and familiar, Catalyst starts by deploying a control server in your studio.
Always-on Core Services

Catalyst curates a set of core technologies into an all-in-one platform for creative collaboration on virtual productions, from pre to post.

  • Utilizes Unreal Engine, the world’s most realistic real-time 3D engine.

  • Always-on multi-user server for real time collaboration.

  • Integrated version control ( Perforce / Git )

  • High performance shared storage ( SMB / NFS )

Catalyst Control Center (beta) is an in-development web-based frontend solution.

  • Stage Control       ●   Network Administration       ●   nDisplay Render Control

  • Level Editor               ●   Real-time Compositing             ●   Motion Tracking

Virtual Machines & Containers

All the tools you’re used to, running in containers & virtual machines. 

  • Applications are obfuscated from the hardware using a lightweight custom OS.

  • Built around bleeding-edge technology like Kubernetes, VFIO, & the Nvidia Container Toolkit equals zero performance overhead for core services.


Unlock the potential of Virtual Production.

Global collaboration possibilities.
Dedicated local network for high-speed connectivity. 

  • Seamless connectivity for workstations and render nodes,
    without user interaction.

  • Enhanced built-in services like DHCP, DNS, & User Database.

  • Logins are common across all applications for maximum security.

Integrated VPN extends your network across the world.

  • Secure connectivity to entire network for remote artists, laptops, or mobile. 

  • Bridge your dedicated network with other sites, or even other studios. 

  • Cloud resources ( GCP / AWS ) can be easily connected to instantly scale a system.

Many deployments. One Platform.

Catalyst brings industry-standard Virtual Production components together in one customizable platform.
