MEDIA ADVISORY : TFO Virtual Universe Lab Open House

TORONTO, Oct. 26, 2016 /CNW/ - Today's learners are digital natives who are accustomed to the vivid graphics and interactive worlds of gaming technology. Regular television and educational content often falls flat in comparison.

To produce more dynamic content for today's learners, Groupe Media TFO (TFO) has invested in a virtual studio at its production facilities in Toronto. This new Virtual Universe Lab (VUL) allows TFO to create vivid and enriching content in a more efficient way. The new production environment increases French educational content production tenfold and enables the team to create virtual immersive 3D sets for ALL of its shows, daily.  

Why is this important?

TFO's launch of this technology marks the first time this software has been applied to television broadcasting and is part of a larger story about how the organization is a leading creator of French content in North America.

Media, along with prominent politicians and key stakeholders, are invited to the official launch of VUL this week.


  • Glenn O'Farrell, CEO, Groupe Media TFO
  • Honorable Mitzie Hunter, Minister of Education (MPP Scarborough/Guildwood)
  • Honorable Marie-France Lalonde, (office of Francophone affaires)
  • Mr. Marc Trouyet, Consul General of France in Toronto
  • Councillor Norm Kelly, City of Toronto
  • Éric Minoli, Vice President and CTO, Groupe Media TFO
