    ABOUT THE CQAM

    The Conseil québécois des arts médiatiques was founded on June 19, 1998. Recognized since 2003 as the media arts group in Quebec, CQAM brings together, represents and values independent professional artists, cultural workers and organizations dedicated to the media arts. The discipline of media arts includes digital arts and independent film arts.


    ABOUT VYV

    VYV was created in 2004, after the studies of its founders at the 3D computer graphics laboratory of the Université de Montréal. They made their expertise in 3D computer graphics by developing flexible and interactive video projection tools to meet the growing needs of the industry in this field. The link between VYV’s technological vision and the realization of large-scale projects (Cirque du Soleil, Justin Timberlake, Robert Lepage, Roger Waters, etc.) allows Photon, an interactive media server that combines power and flexibility, to remain at the technological forefront.


    ABOUT THE SAT

    Founded in 1996, the Society for Arts and Technology[SAT] is an internationally recognized non-profit organization for its active and pioneering role in the development of immersive technologies, virtual reality and the creative use of very high speed networks. With its triple mission as an artist centre, research and training centre in digital art, SAT was created to support a new generation of creators/researchers in the digital age. Inside its spaces is the Satosphere, a permanent modular dome dedicated to the development and dissemination of immersive experiences at 360˚.
