Full Sail University Builds Virtual Production Studio On Campus

Full Sail University is building a state-of-the-art Virtual Production Studio on its 210+ acre campus located in Winter Park FL. 

Through a combination of tracking and real-time rendering abilities, this latest addition to the university’s campus will allow for immersive virtual environments (ranging from iconic landmarks to interplanetary landscapes, and more) to be created serving as scenic backdrops for film, tv and additional production projects. 

Utilizing Brompton processors, and with 410 tiles on the ground, 90 tiles across its ceiling, and 2.8mm-pixel pitch, the facility features a 40 ft wide and 16 ft high LED wall (comprised of APG’s hyper pixel LEDs), and will be one of the most technologically advanced Virtual Production Studios on any college or university campus in the nation. 

$3 Million of Direct Capital Investment

This new facility will allow students to collaborate across multiple degree programs providing real-world experience with current trends and technology found in the entertainment industry, in addition to hosting professional projects and productions.

With this new studio, Full Sail sets the stage to position its students to meet the future demand for content and applications developed specifically for virtual reality technologies. 

Full Sail is dedicating over $3 million of direct capital investment to the creation of the on-campus Virtual Production Studio and supporting spaces and efforts. The investment in the new facility positively impacts the technology offerings to students and allows for additional project-based learning opportunities to be built within curriculum across several areas of study.
