CANVAS Drives Immersive Learning and events at College La Cité

Our CANVAS technology is helping to drive immersive learning environments across Canada, ushering students into more engaging, interactive and, ultimately, more valuable training.

Ottawa’s College La Cité, a leading applied arts and technology institution, recently adopted CANVAS to drive its new 34,000-square-foot immersive learning pavilion Excentricité, which aims to generate collaboration and creativity across multiple disciplines. The centerpiece of Excentricité is a 4,000-square-foot adaptable hub called The Studio, which features 360-degree projection capabilities powered by CANVAS.

Instructors can use an iPad to quickly and easily display multimedia content onto The Studio’s 252-foot wraparound screen – 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.

The Studio is also outfitted for immersive 360-degree sound to accompany the engaging visuals.
