Los Angeles, California
Our Los Angeles lab is located near the California Institute of Technology, which is a world leader in computer science. Glendale and the adjacent city of Burbank are the seat of The Walt Disney Company headquarters. The lab is housed in the same building as Walt Disney Imagineering’s Advanced Development team, which creates innovative new experiences for Walt Disney Parks and Resort.
Our Zürich lab is a stone’s throw away from the Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich (ETH). With strong ties to the Computer Graphics lab at ETH, the Zürich lab is influencing video of the future (video manipulation, video coding, 3D, and perceptual studies), computational cinematography, human and facial animation, and capture technologies. Zürich is consistently listed among the world’s cities with the best quality of life.
