GODBOX™

Building the Metaverse

Godbox™ Virtual Production World Servers.

Production edge computers for virtual production and in-camera real-time VFX, the Godbox™ has been designed to provide power and reliability where low latency, real-time computing is critical. Ready to support OSFX, Nvidia Omniverse and AMD Zen3 Architecture, we’ve gone military grade with the latest Godbox™ build.

Designing the Godbox™ architecture using server components, as an on-set edge computing platform for virtual production and real-time VFX, the Godbox™ is now ultimately future proof. Expandable to super-computer specs with up to 8TB of RAM (ECC REG Validated DIIMMs), up to 128 processing cores and 128 threads, up to 320TB of low-latency storage with HDD, or up to 160TB of storage with SSD.

The GODBOX™ RTX 8000 Master Real-Time Virtual Production Computer

For when the distance between data and computation is critical, such as on-set, the MKII GODBOX™ range of on-set production-edge computers are powered by AMD processors and Nvidia server architecture for ultimate on-set power and reliability.

If you have ever tried to run real-time applications in anger on-set, you’ll know that reducing the distance to computation is the key to achieving a reliable real-time production. Those working on virtual sets also know how dropped frames, struggling FPS, data transfer lag and sync problems can all kill a productions smooth running. That’s why experienced VP professionals use powerful on-set computers that are designed for real-time virtual production, saving both time and money on-set. Today professional VP crews all over the world trust GODBOX™ to power critical production environments for broadcast, sound-stages and studios.

The GODBOX™ RTX8000 is your almighty media server, designed to be run as your main on-set world computer, running your project and acting as a server for multi-user workflows and cluster applications; a real-time rendering engine that conducts your real-time virtual production across your production.

Battle tested under pressure GODBOX™

Why an RTX800? Because most world / game engines only use 1 GPU in editor mode. When you are on-set and under pressure you’ll want the most powerful single GPU possible, in your master machine to maintain high FPS rates, especially if you have multiple machines and complex I/O set-ups. Presently, that’s the NVIDIA RTX 8000, back that up with the perfect number of cores and clock speeds to make the most our of game engines such as Unreal Engine,  GODBOX™ is balanced for optimum on-set reliability and performance.

Build your virtual production cluster

Available in a number of form factors to meet your stage, production or studio needs.

The GODBOX™ RTX8000 is the beating heart of your virtual production system, designed to drive real-time graphic software at the highest levels of performance and reliability. As part of a cluster of virtual production machines, a GODBOX™ connects multiple devices (including other GODBOX™ models) and application specific computers and workstations. When combined in a cluster, a GODBOX™ transports data with predictability, low-latency reliability and efficiency.

Furthermore, each node or render engine is often given a specific on-set role, be that for running motion-capture equipment, driving LED walls as virtual backdrops, tracking lights and cameras, controlling remote cameras, or rendering set designs in real-time. Unlike cloud based SaaS computing, real-time virtual production requires the use of powerful on-set edge computers where the proximity between data and computing is critical.

Connect GODBOX™ to the cloud

Connect GODBOX™ to a virtual production networks (VPN) via high-speed on-set connections equipped with 10GB LAN/WAN networking components, the GODBOX™ is a powerful virtual production edge computer that’s ready to connect to the cloud. Connecting production environments both locally and remotely over a dedicated, low-latency, secure, VPN service such as StormCloud virtual productions can securely and reliably connect multiple production locations.
