The Computational Media Innovation Centre (CMIC) aims to strengthen New Zealand’s capability in interactive media through academic research.

We collaborate with industry experts including major international media organisations to develop new or advance existing virtual reality/augmented reality, film, and gaming technologies.

The Centre is also an incubation space for digital start-ups, where projects are developed from initial concepts through to market-ready products.
