Karnataka launches India’s first AVGC center of excellence in Bengaluru
- The state government of Karnataka has set up India’s first AVGC Center of Excellence (CoE) in Bengaluru recently.
- AVCG stands for Animation, Visual Effects, Gaming and Comics.
- Karnataka is also the first in the country to bring an AVGC policy in 2012.
- This new development has positioned Karnataka as a pioneering high technology digital media hub of India.
- The AVGC Center of Excellence (CoE) has been funded by the state department of IT/BT & Electronics, under its ‘Innovate Karnataka’ initiative.
- The CoE is also said to be the biggest such centre in Asia.
- The basic objective of the AVGC COE is to make available the best facilities and technologies to start-ups, AVGC studios, and professionals who find it difficult to fund or access such a high-technology stack individually.
Points to Remember:
- India’s first AVGC Center of Excellence (CoE) has been set up in which state/city?
