Edge Hill University’s Virtual Hub


The ActiveCube at Edge Hill University is the first super immersive 3D virtual environment in the UK

Edge Hill University’s ActiveCube is the UK’s first 4k 3D virtual environment—part of its new £13m Technology Hub. The four-screen CAVE (Computer Augmented Virtual Environment) installed by Virtalis offers students and businesses the chance to fully immerse themselves in a virtual setting.

Using Visionary Render and real complex data to replicate reality, students will be able to experience real-life scenarios in 4k resolution. This could include engineering, designing and training or even complex surgery and lab scenarios, providing the essential tools to use in real-life, as well knowledge and experience to use in the top-leading organisations.

Speaking to Roger Perrin, IT Technician at Edge Hill University, “The ActiveCube is used on a daily basis, from students to lecturers, and even budding entrepreneurs, that tap into the skills and knowledge of the University and local industry in ‘The Hatchery’, a working space for new business ideas."
