The mission of the S3D Centre at Emily Carr University of Art + Design is to advance the art of Stereoscopic 3D and Advanced Imaging topics.

Our applied research programs and training activities focus on the creative applications made possible by experimenting with S3D and Advanced Imaging (4K, virtual reality, High Frame Rate) production technologies and methods.
