EVO II

EVO II: ultimate performance crafted for real-time virtual production

Exceptional virtual productions demand exceptional hardware to deliver the rendering power and ultimate performance you need for high-end virtual production environments.

Where high-end servers lack the specialised specifications of gaming hardware, gaming systems don’t come equipped with essential professional 24×7 operational features such as redundant power supplies and rackmount capabilities. Until now, no engine on the market was capable of delivering everything in one package.

So we made our own, re-engineered the concept of rendering hardware that supports game engine-based virtual productions, and unleashing the full potential of our Reality5 virtual production platform.

From PCBs to power cabling and cooling, we meticulously reviewed every component, and developed better alternatives in-house when industry standard components fell short.

The resultant EVO II is the most advanced real-time virtual production render hardware platform on the market today.

Designed for endurance. Crafted for ultimate performance. Purpose-built for one task: game engine-based, real-time rendering, compositing and video input/output for virtual production.

EVO II: Crafted for Ultimate Performance in Real-Time Virtual Production

The best hardware. The best platform. The best results.

Bring your creative vision to life without compromise. EVO II running the Reality5 virtual production platform is the best possible combination of hardware and software for real-time rendering, compositing and video input/output for virtual productions.

Visual impact

Our eight-year expertise using gaming engines to create hyper-realistic virtual environments and dynamic data-driven graphics has led us to create this high performance virtual production hardware platform that gives you the power to always render and composite at the highest possible quality in real-time.

Reality5, our real-time virtual production platform, can blend virtual and physical worlds in virtual studio, AR and XR productions, empowering storytellers to create impactful visual experiences with ease.

Best in class performance

EVO II’s astonishing performance is driven by four core factors: the GPU, the CPU, the power delivery system, and thermal management. The successful combination of these four elements determines the overall performance of the render engine, and makes it possible to unleash the full potential of our new Reality5 platform.

We carefully selected the best components for the EVO II render engine after meticulously reviewing every possible alternative. If we couldn’t find a component that met our needs, we developed our own to the right specifications.

Built for security and reliability

We designed every aspect of the EVO II to meet the specific high performance, security and reliability demands of virtual production environments.

The EVO II uses M2 SSDs over traditional SATA connections, leveraging the mini PCI bus to achieve the lowest latency possible.

Numerous components within the EVO II chassis are precisely fabricated using high-end 3D printing technology, which allows us to create custom parts in low volumes while maintaining high quality and durability standards. To adhere to the highest fire safety requirements, components exposed to significant electrical loads are printed using fire retardant materials.

To prevent accidental disruptions and security breaches, we’ve removed front USB ports and wireless communication hardware.

Finally, to complement the optimised hardware, we created a custom distribution of Windows 11 to ensure that all drivers and OS components support the performance of the EVO II.

Monitoring, control and maintenance

For comprehensive oversight of the machine’s physical and operational status, a single board computer monitors temperature and CPU/GPU data, ambient temperature and humidity, cooling fan speed, and the status of the redundant power supply. It also detects any motion of the chassis.

You can access all this data via the Reality Hub hardware monitoring system, and the touchscreen display on the front of the EVO II chassis. The touchscreen shows you the system status and provides access to configuration information. Thanks to a bidirectional connection with Reality Hub the RGB status indicators in the fans report not only the status of the hardware, but also the status of Reality5, if, for example, the shaders are being compiled the fans turn to a specific color.

Quality Assurance and Quality Control

Our rigorous Quality Control process makes sure that every EVO II we produce meets the benchmarks we set during the initial component selection and architecture build phase.

Every component is tested before, during and after modification and assembly. They are inspected and tested under full load conditions to verify that they perform to the standard set by the quality assurance specifications. This meticulous component selection and testing process ensures the reliability and performance of the final product.
