Today, we’re thrilled to announce that we’ve taken another step towards that goal. We’re teaming up with Puget Systems to design computers that are optimized for Prospect, our instant 3D-to-VR software, making it simpler than ever to assemble a VR-ready workstation.
As a VR-first company, it’s important to us that your VR experiences with clients and collaborators alike are comfortable and productive. Now, obtaining a computer that’s capable of delivering smooth, premium VR is no problem.
All 3 of Puget Systems’ new IrisVR workstations - available for purchase starting today - have been custom-tested to ensure the most effective performance for virtual reality, all the way down to the hardware component level. Each workstation is perfect for pairing with an immersive VR headset, like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive.
But our partnership with Puget System isn’t stopping with these VR-ready computers. We’ll also be providing Puget Systems IrisVR Workstation customers with collaborative technical support from AEC, VR, and computer hardware experts, sourced from each of our world-class CX teams.
Here’s a quick look at the new, VR-Ready Workstations:
Compact IrisVR Workstation
This workstation is tailored to provide plenty of CPU and graphics performance for interacting with all sorts of 3D models - even large ones.
Advanced IrisVR Workstation
Based on Puget Systems’ Deluge gaming system, the Advanced IrisVR Workstation is designed for experiencing all that immersive virtual reality headsets have to offer.
While great for rendering VR experiences, this workstation also provides powerful performance across a wide range of other applications when you aren't wearing an HMD.
Ultra IrisVR Workstation
The Ultra IrisVR Workstation’s tower chassis has room for additional drives and expansion cards in order to better handle virtual reality experiences and game development, art and content creation, and more.
The core hardware specs are the same as Puget Systems’ more compact VR computers, ensuring the performance needed to test out VR applications as they are developed.
We’re kicking off our Puget Systems partnership with a collaborative webinar on VR computers, headsets, and more. Keep reading to find out more.
