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.
