Advancements in HFR, S3D, UltraHD and the immersive experience

The S3D Centre is a national centre of excellence dedicated to advancing the art and technology of stereo 3D, advanced imaging and immersive media topics through applied research, skills development and event outreach. We have become known around the world for these explorations, find out more about our ongoing projects. 

vIVE – Very Immersive Virtual Experience (Virtual Reality & Mocap)

The initial goal of this project was to use passive optical motion capture to track an Oculus Rift to create an immersive virtual experience. The physical Oculus Rift is motion captured and in realtime with low latency the data is piped to unity to drive the virtual Oculus Rift. The output is wirelessly transmitted to the device. This results in an untethered virtual experience, which can include hands, feed or even a full body avatar. Read more

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. With the support of our partners and students, we aim to teach, train and discover the aesthetic possibilities of these areas and become world leaders in creative technology exploration.
