DegreeCourseworkAdditional Information


The specialization in Digital Production and Immersion enables students to develop skills in managing digital production (Media Managers) and digital content (Media Asset Management) of new media used in audiovisual and multimedia projects.

The Digital Production and Immersion specialization is based on the following chronogram:

•    Seminars enabling students to obtain first-hand accounts and feedback from experienced professionals from various fields.
•    Fundamental Coursework
•    Project Management of the digital supply chain using various media (short films, docufiction, DVDs, blogs, forums,…)
•    A collaborative student project dubbed “Réaco”.  An integral part of the degree, this extensive project provides students in different production teams with the opportunity to directly apply the theoretical knowledge acquired in class.  Students design and develop a web portal and a DVD short film on a given theme.  Combining project management techniques (management, communication, budgeting, logistics etc…) with multimedia skills (digital content, image and sound production, etc…) students receive practical training throughout the entire semester.  Each team has access to the collaborative intranet allowing the team to post its work and assignments requested by the faculty.  The collective project follows the predetermined phases pursuant to common practices in multimedia production.  The final product or media support is presented publically to a jury of professors and professionals.
•    A 20-week Professional Internshi

The Digital Production and Immersion specialization provides the following interdisciplinary background based on proficiency in:  Collaborative Tools, Production and Integration of both digital sound and video content on networks using various media supports (Web, Video Games, DVD, HD Video Broadcasting, Cinema, Rich Media):

•    Mastering the digital supply chain of new digital media (design and development of digital productions combining live, animated, and 3D images as well as special effects, stereoscopy-embossing, augmented reality applications, immersive environments, virtual settings, serious games and video games)
•    Supervising and Managing Digital Content (Media Asset Management, Production Pipelines, Content Lifecycle, Meta-Data Management, Digital Law).

This field has become more strategic due to the development of new consumption methods which combine different communication channels and 360 broadcasting:  generalized dematerialization of audiovisual data, increased VOD needs, boom of digital terrestrial television, TV web rebroadcasting such as M6Replay, widespread HD TV broadcasts, evolutions in stereoscopy and embossing broadcasts, surge of augmented reality in traditional websites, real-time 3D in video games, etc.
