FacilIties and Equipment

CIVIT is a valuable tool in the realization of many research projects in the area of ultra-realistic 3D scene capture and advanced visualisation as it allows access to an unprecedented level of high quality, state-of-the-art equipment in an economically efficient way.

We have various state-of-the-art cameras, advanced displays, motion capture equipment and studio, range sensors and LIDARs, VR/AR and other immersive gear. Companies, students, staff and researchers can utilize our equipment and CIVIT lab in Hervanta campus. Our premises in Sähkötalo include capture and display studios, and a UX room. 

Companies can get access to our facilities through research projects or by utilizing our other services, such as Proof of Concept-projects and equipment rental. You can find out more about our services for companies here

Staff at Tampere Universities (TAU & TAMK) can get access to our facilities by filling in the request form. The equipment is free of charge for the staff and students when it is used for research purposes. You can find more information here or contact us civit@tuni.fi

Students get access to our equipment and facilities through courses, research projects or thesis work. 

Students who need the equipment for their thesis work should send their research plan and supervisor’s contact information to civit@tuni.fi. Their supervisor should be from Tampere Universities (TAU or TAMK). In their research plan, students should mention why the equipment is necessary for the outcome/result of the thesis.
