“Our studio will serve as a platform for clients to get a taste of what futurealistic experiences could be like.

The launch of our Futurealistic Studio will raise the bar for immersive media productions in Singapore and we are excited to be at the forefront of our industry. We look forward to creating many more memorable experiences that will leave a lasting impression for audiences everywhere,” said Nick Tan, CEO, Oceanus Media Global.

The studio is able to blend XR, AR, MR, and VR technologies into a singular customised virtual experience to meet any brand’s bespoke vision.

Live streams and broadcasts can be augmented with motion capture equipment to create immersive and interactive digital concerts in the metaverse.

The company helped to create ShiGGa Shay’s The ‘365’ Mixed Reality Experience, SEA’s first mixed reality concert.

Oceanus Media Global currently works with businesses to create distinctive, digitally driven experiences that push the boundaries of our imaginations, some of which are listed below.

  • The Front Row 2021

Oceanus Media Global will continue to grow its team at the immersive media studio and is
looking to expand its current team of 50 by 50% within the next 2 years.

Origins

Peter Koh, Group CEO at Oceanus Group Limited, shared with me over tea that the idea for the studio germinated from the company’s own desire to host an impressive Annual General Meeting (AGM) for its shareholders.

Encouraged by then Minister for Communications and Information, Yaacob Ibrahim, Koh decided to build the capability in-house and successfully hosted the company’s latest AGM using the software and hardware built into the studio on 29 April, 2022.

Koh believes other companies would find the storytelling enabled by the Futurealistic Studio valuable for their own AGMs and branding content.

The story reminds me of the origins of Amazon Web Services – it had originally been built for in-house usage for Amazon’s businesses then.

The capability was so well implemented that Amazon decided to sell it as a solution for other companies looking for web services.

    What’s the diff between this and a green screen?

    • tech4tea says:

      Two main differences. Firstly, the LED screen provides lighting on the subject so if it’s a sunrise in the background, the subject will actually be lighted from behind according to the scene. Secondly because the actor can see the scene on the LED screens, he/she can better relate to the virtual subjects he/she is interacting with, unlike in a green screen where the actor has to imagine the scene in his mind and estimate the locations of the virtual objects/people.
