Virtual Production has become a transformative force in the Education industry, offering innovative solutions for content creation and storytelling. In CIT, we are at the forefront of integrating cutting-edge Virtual Production technologies into our academic and creative endeavours.

The journey begins with a pilot stage that emphasizes a minimalist setup tailored to a budgeted cost. The Virtual Production (VP) setup at CIT studio comprises essential components such as the Switchblade Machine running Unreal Engine, HTC Vive Tracker, and base stations for real-time camera movement tracking. Leveraging existing studio camera equipment, greenscreens, and mixers, we explore the possibilities of VP within a constrained budget.

Entering the development stage, the team embraces the challenges and adventures that come with pushing the boundaries of virtual storytelling. Our traditional production setup coexists with a more elaborate VP process. The core components involve Lighthouse base stations, Unreal Engine for real-time rendering, and meticulous camera timecode synchronization. The workflow includes pre-filming preparations, such as transferring 3D scenes to ensure seamless integration with the real-time environment. Workstations with ample horsepower enable real-time rendering and efficient execution of complex 3D scenes and ray tracing.

As the virtual production landscape evolves rapidly, CIT is actively evaluating proposals from various vendors. While pricing is a significant consideration, our focus extends to the ease of use of the system, scalability, integrity, and overall impact of the solution. Our commitment to staying at the forefront of technology ensures that our students and researchers have access to state-of-the-art tools and experiences in the dynamic field of virtual production.

The integration of virtual production at NUS signifies our commitment to innovation and excellence in media and technology education. Through a thoughtful combination of minimalist setups, pioneering technology, and a commitment to continuous improvement, CIT aims to contribute significantly to the ever-expanding realm of virtual production.



Is this MOOC an introduction to Physics or Magic? Here's calling all curious minds from every corner of the globe to join us to learn physics via science demonstrations which are exciting, visually appealing and thought provoking. In this MOOC, you'll get to witness how demonstrations can add reality and vividness to the process of concept formation, and pick up one or two scientific nuggets along the way.

Instructor: Prof Sow Chorng Haur

What you'll learn:

Learners acquire the physics concepts that can explain the physical phenomenon presented. It is the intention of this module that the concepts acquired by the learners do not stop at the surface level. Instead, the learners should acquire deeper insights into the concepts discussed. We aim to achieve this by designing the learning experience to start with the most basic and then move on to the next intermediate level and then to the higher level. There will also be “counter-intuitive moment” to challenge the knowledge of the learners.
Learners develop knowledge in a systematic self-discovery manner where they are constantly required to make sense of the phenomenon and thus forming the theoretical framework/model that can provide a good account of the observed phenomenon.
By doing so, learners will acquire deductive and logical inference process during the formulation of the model to explain what they have seen.

We would like to congratulate the winners of the inaugural geNiUSchannel and geNiUSbooks competition 2021. The winning entries leveraged on the technologies provided by geNiUSchannel and geNiUSbooks to convey subjects and topics in an interesting and rich multimedia format that kept our users engaged. We would also like to thank our jury panel of painstakingly going through the entries to identify the winners despite their busy schedule.
