AMPD, a supplier of sophisticated visual computing solutions and Versatile Media, a global production/media company, are utilizing their relationship to drive a paradigm shift toward Virtual Production, characterized as “the new frontier” of filmmaking. In a recent PostPerspective article, Karen Moltenbrey explores this relationship and the benefits that NVIDIA® RTX™ GPUs bring to Versatile Media’s new virtual production facility. It is also the topic of our latest On-Demand Webinar: How AMPD is Architecting Optimal Real-Time and Virtual Production Studio Environments.

Virtual production is a rapidly growing trend in filmmaking and visual effects. It enables directors to eliminate the need for practical effects or locations with synthetic alternatives, while still delivering the life-like production values demanded by increasingly demanding viewers. The realism virtual production cinematography provides is truly stunning. However, requirements like extremely complex lighting, incredibly detailed geometries, and lifelike textures demand more than consumer graphics boards can provide. Virtual production cinematography requires powerful professional-grade graphics boards such as the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 8000, which is specifically designed to produce the most realistic scenes with stunning cinematic quality across the most demanding use cases found in the media and entertainment industry today.
