HTC is hoping to improve its virtual reality efforts in an interesting way. Co-founder and former CEO Peter Chou has just been named as an executive director at the famous movie visual effects studio Digital Domain, and will officially start working there on Aug. 31.
Chou left the CEO position at HTC in March but remained with the company as head of its Future Development Lab. He will keep his current gig at HTC while also working at Digital Domain, which was co-founded by Terminator director James Cameron in 1993. The studio has created visual effects for movies like Titanic, Tron: Legacy, Iron Man 3 and most recently Furious 7.
Chou apparently wants to make partnerships for HTC in the VR space, as the company prepares to launch the HTC Vive headset. Digital Domain, which was acquired in 2013 by Hong Kong-based Sun Innovation, launched a VR division in 2015 called IM360 in a partnership with Dallas-based Immersive Media
