Use industry leading software remotely within the cloud


Virtual Studio from Appsbroker connects content creators with their preferred VFX and rendering software via the cloud, enabling continued production from the comfort of home. Using Teradici thin client and Intel VMs on Google Cloud Platform, Virtual Studio surpasses the performance of office-based solutions from a remote workstation, providing the production speeds you need. 

Enhanced rendering power on-demand

Virtual Studio is a fully cloud based solution, meaning your compute power is available to scale up as and when you need; particularly beneficial at peak production times when up to millions of cores require processing in a short space of times. 

No more expensive on-premise supercomputers-burst into the cloud and render what you want, when you need it. 

A solution for today and tomorrow
