First RFP out for Christchurch's Digital Screen Campus

The University of Canterbury is to build a Digital Screen Campus, developing skills and talents necessary for a more converged media future.

The development is expected to be the largest of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, to be constructed over 14 hectares (35 acres) and involve a $65 million (NZ$97 million) investment from the university itself.

The aim of the new DSC is to add skills in film production, game development and the metaverse to the country’s abundant filming locations, generous production incentives and award-winning craft personnel in traditional sectors.

UC’s Digital Screen Campus has released a Request for Proposal on GETS for the campus's screen production and post-production equipment - design, procurement, installation, configuration/integration and support - for the first stage of the campus; other RFPs will follow.
