Production support and 3D rendering experts, Render Nation, have joined the Sensor City community, having recently taken up residency in a large office suite.

First established in 2005 as a render farm, Render Nation now produces computer generated images, animations, augmented reality (AR) apps and pipeline development for their clients.

Now based at Sensor City, Daniel Thomason, Director, said: “We are keen to capitalise on the connections and collaboration opportunities available at Sensor City.
