Digital and Creative Technologies
Our Digital and Creative Technology research is fuelling technological advances in animation, visual effects (VFX), cross reality (XR), User Experience (UX), computer and video games, and visual computing.
We conduct globally recognised research using the latest equipment and techniques in our studios and labs. We've produced award-winning CGI films, created ultra-realistic and immersive entertainment using virtual and augmented reality, developed ways to use digital technology to protect heritage sites, and we're improving how the progression of Parkinson's disease and facial palsy is monitored.
