A new research centre that will develop innovative forms of advanced 3-D communication was unveiled Nov. 9 at Singapore’s Nanyang Technological University (NTU). The BeingThere Centre is a transnational effort spearheaded by NTU, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich and UNC’s Department of Computer Science, as well as the Media Development Authority of Singapore. The centre is headed by three co-directors: Markus Gross, professor and director of the Computer Graphics Lab, ETH Zurich; Nadia Magnenat-Thalmann, professor and director, Institute for Media Innovation, NTU; and Henry Fuchs, Federico Gil Distinguished Professor, UNC-Chapel Hill.
