Yoom’s cutting-edge technology empowers universities to offer groundbreaking courses in fields like Game Design, Immersive Media, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality, providing students with practical, hands-on experience that is increasingly crucial in today’s competitive job market.

With Volumetric Video, students not only consume but also create content, honing their skills in 3D character modeling, animation, and storytelling – essential competencies in industries ranging from entertainment to gaming and beyond.

As the world trends towards a future where immersive technologies become integral to various sectors, universities that invest in volumetric capture studios position themselves as frontrunners in preparing students for these rapidly evolving job markets. Graduates with experience in volumetric capture and 3D content creation gain a competitive edge in fields like gaming, filmmaking, entertainment, and immersive storytelling. By adopting this technology now, Universities future-proof their education programs, ensuring that graduates are well-equipped for the demands of tomorrow’s workforce.

American University

American University’s Institute for IDEAS is an international research center dedicated to developing, applying, and understanding immersive technologies.

In pursuit of their mission to explore and expand the innovative possibilities of mixed-reality experiences, they are focused on advancing a new storytelling medium through volumetric content.

At the core of this initiative is the YOOM Capture System, which students use to develop immersive volumetric content for VR, AR, and other applications. Annual courses are equally technical and creative, and the studio is fully operated by students throughout the year.

Students work together to complete research and create volumetric based immersive projects which are showcased annually at University Conferences.
