Three days of inspirational, educational presentations, panel discussions and demonstrations from Virtual Production industry leaders and influencers are a good reason to visit Unilumin booth at NAB.
Vū is returning to NAB 2023 in Las Vegas this month to create a high-value, educational and inspirational virtual production experience for attendees: Virtual Production Central, presented by Vū and Unilumin. Over the course of three days (April 16 – 18, 2023), Virtual Production Central, located within the Unilumin booth (Booth #C8320) will be the forum for a series of demonstrations, moderated presentations, panel discussions and new virtual production technology announcements.
Delivered by executives from Vū and Unilumin, as well as a number of Virtual Production industry experts and influencers, the program is designed to advance the broad adoption of virtual production workflows and techniques, as well as to share best practices that encourage education, community building and growth throughout the virtual production industry.
“Studio executives, production companies, and content creators alike are becoming increasingly interested in how virtual production can help their production,” said Tim Moore, CEO of Vū. “This year we are teaming up with Unilumin to produce Virtual Production Central at NAB as a forum for some of the brightest minds in the industry to share their experience on how virtual production is radically changing their overall productivity and creative capabilities. Our goal is to provide NAB attendees – from every corner of the industry – with valuable in-depth tricks of the trade. VP central will be a place where guests can learn not only what’s possible with Virtual Production today, but the exciting new developments coming in 2023.”

In collaboration with Unilumin, Vū is assembling a multi-day agenda of panel discussions moderated by industry leaders and influencers, and several virtual production-related tech demos and announcements from Vū and its various partners.
“With the exponential growth of Virtual Production, Unilumin wanted our booth to be more than product this year at NAB,” said Jason Barak, Vice President of Strategic Markets. “Partnering with an industry innovation leader such as Vū, we’re able to tap into a wide array of the thought leadership throughout the entire VP space.”
