Digital Domain Holdings, which runs the world’s largest independent visual effects studio, is aiming to ramp up its push into virtual reality through a partnership with mobile chip giant Qualcomm.

“We are creating a new ecosystem for virtual reality,” Digital Domain chairman Peter Chou told the South China Morning Post on Wednesday.

Chou, who co-founded the Taiwanese smartphone maker HTC, said the new alliances formed part of Digital Domain’s preparations for the global roll-out of 5G mobile services in the next few years. He foresees a growing demand for virtual reality content enabled by the new mobile system.
