Lab 7 in a few words

Lab7 is first and foremost a production prototyping studio located at the 7 Fingers Creation and Production Center, where we find motion capture technologies, a video game engine and stage integrators. And soon, virtual and augmented reality, multiplatform broadcasting, immersive scenography and interactive environments will be added to the menu.

Lab7 is also an applied research and exploration program developed in partnership with CRITAC and other institutions and research programs. We are already exploring the integration of advanced technologies with the physical realities and limitations of live performance. And soon, the transfer of knowledge and the development of technologies by suppliers and manufacturers will be on the menu.
