Monash University’s SensiLab has been given a boost with cutting-edge technology to support research and engagement activities thanks to Blackmagic Design.

Founded in Melbourne, Blackmagic Design is a world leader in creative film and video technology. SensiLab Director, Professor Jon McCormack said that their support gives researchers and students access to some of the best equipment in the world to help achieve their goals.

“Our research aims to investigate the untapped potential of technology and rapidly prototype innovative applications and creative possibilities that others haven’t yet thought of. The equipment and software from Blackmagic Design will help us to achieve that,” he said.

"Blackmagic have been incredibly supportive of our vision to become one of the world's leading creative technology research centres. They are a local company that is now a leading facilitator for creative professionals all over the world. We look forward to partnering with them on future research projects." Professor McCormack said.

Blackmagic Design Chief Executive, Grant Petty is delighted to see so many of their products being used for research purposes at SensiLab.

"Some of the world's most innovative research is being done at Monash University, and the research that SensiLab is doing on VR, the art and design of moving images and sound and other scientific research is incredibly exciting. It's humbling and also very exciting to see our products being used on this level of research and with their student film and broadcast work." Grant said.
