Center for Imaging Media Research (IMRC)
was established in 1997 to conduct human-media interaction research including virtual and augmented realities (VR/AR), ubiquitous computing, multimodal interaction, electromagnetic sensing, and autostereoscopic 3D displays.
As a leading research group of imaging media research, the Center launched the world’s largest VR theater in Kyungju World Culture EXPO 2000, Korea, which is visited by more than 1.70 million people. The Center is also a member of Digital Heritage Exchange Consortium researching remote interaction of digital heritage with international institutes. The Center has been active in attracting international conferences like VRST, VSMM, ICAT, ISMAR, and has demonstrated research progress in CES, Las Vegas, USA.
Recently, the Center is focusing on a smart aging field to get ready for the aged society. Also, in order to prepare the 4th industrial revolution, the Center is conducting research to develop original technologies in big data, artificial intelligence, AR/VR/MR (augmented, virtual, and mixed realities) interaction and displays, and forensic science for public security. In addition, the Center is concentrating its research capacity to increase the public welfare by solving social problems and to develop future Lifetronic space through seamless integration of virtual space and physical environments.
