Animation Research Ltd is one of Australasia’s leading computer graphics production houses with over 25 years industry experience. ARL's speciality product; Virtual Eye, is the system used by broadcasters around the world to transform digital data into real-time 3D graphics. ARL works with many of the biggest broadcasters and sports authorities including: America’s Cup, Volvo Ocean Race, Red Bull Media House, Formula 1, European Tour Productions, Fox Sports and the International Cricket Council.
ARL’s strengths go a lot further afield than sports though, with its city and infrastructure platforms used by CERA for the visualisation of future Christchurch and by mining giant Rio Tinto for planning disaster recovery of its western Australia infrastructure. The next big thing for ARL is its development in the AR and VR world, but you’ll have to watch this space on that one.
John is Head of Technology & Innovation and Special Projects Manager at Animation Research, primarily responsible for new developments and looking at what technologies ARL should focus its attention towards in the future.
John has worked for Animation Research for over 10 years, spending much of his time traveling and living in other countries as part of his role. His portfolio now includes 4 editions of the America’s Cup, 3 editions of the Volvo Ocean Race and more than 100 hundred other events. John now intends to spend less of his time traveling and more time back in the New Zealand office planning ARL’s exciting future developments.View Prices
