The shape of film to come

A world-leading volumetric and 3D capture studio that provides a step change in the realism of immersive content


What is Dimension?

A joint venture between Digital Catapult, Microsoft and Hammerhead, the studio provides a world-class facility for use by startups, scaleups and corporates that form part of the UK’s rapidly growing immersive technology and content sector.

Using 106 cameras, Dimension captures life in wonderful volumetric detail, providing a step change in the realism that can be achieved for the creation of virtual humans and environments. Injecting new life into stories, games and experiences for both immersive and 2D media.

“Dimension enables the production of extraordinarily life-like digital assets making stories, experiences and applications even more compelling. Compared to current animated content, the potential impact of truly lifelike VR/AR/MR experiences is enormous putting the UK at the heart of the immersive industry.” says Dr Jeremy Silver, CEO of Digital Catapult.

Dimension launches new partner programme

The partner programme provides early access to the Windows Desktop, VR, iOS and Android SDKs, and Dimension is inviting applicants to join and be the first to create next generation AR, MR, VR experiences featuring volumetric video using Microsoft Mixed Reality Capture.

Dimension is a world leading volumetric video and 3D capture studio, and the first Microsoft Mixed Reality Capture studio partner.


Dimension is a proud partnership between Hammerhead, Digital Catapult and Microsoft.

Together with Hammerhead and Microsoft we are delighted to bring the world’s most advanced immersive technology to the UK
