Who we are

The Digital Media Lab (DML) is a flexible in-house, creative media production and R&D capability. We support a wide range of educational, communications, marketing, research and outreach initiatives for Imperial College London, through interactive, time-based and immersive media, and the development of innovative audio-visual solutions. Fusing methodologies from film and broadcast, gaming and VR, each project contributes to a growing body of knowledge and experience, and refined, streamlined workflows.

As part of the College’s Academic Services Directorate, the DML supports College’s EdTech Labs with learning media, as well as College’s wider community, in research, outreach or knowledge sharing.
