Immersive Learning Pavilion

Immersive Design Studios collaborated with Ottawa’s College La Cité, a leading applied arts and technology institution, to equip its new 34,000-square-foot immersive learning pavilion Excentricité with CANVAS server technology.

CANVAS powers 360-degree projection capabilities within the pavilion, where instructors can use an iPad to quickly and easily display multimedia content — synchronizing multiple input formats and video resolutions in real time, automatically applying image correction tools for uniformly sharp visual fidelity and color calibration, and displaying the final high-resolution content in 60 frames per second across 13 4K projectors simultaneously. This groundbreaking approach to immersive learning is helping to generate greater collaboration and creativity across multiple disciplines at the college.
