Singapore’s first VR studio opens

Infinite Studios, an integrated media, entertainment and creative services company, has created Singapore’s first 4K ready virtual reality studio. The new system is part of an 18,000sqft facility used for international sports and entertainment productions.

Infinite Studios opened at Mediapolis, Singapore’s digital media city located in one-north, a research hub in south west Singapore. The studio offers digital media services supporting large scale television, film and animation productions. The new VR studio comprises a green screen cychorama infinity wall, with technology from Ross Video, 3D Graphics and EVS.

“EVS technology including the XT3 platform and IPDirector for production asset management give us state-of-the-art production capabilities that can grow as we do,” said Lawerance Ang, head of operations at Infinite Studios. “The system is flexible, and with features like native recording formats, 4K Ready and complete content management, is designed to facilitate world-class production not just today but tomorrow.”

Olivier Heurteaux, SVP Asia Pacific, EVS, added: “This studio represents the best of EVS’ practical innovations. Today’s production has to be faster, more agile and do more with less. We’re proud to work with Infinite Studios to create some of the very best live production facilities in the region.”

The studio also features Ross UX for virtual solutions control, XPression for graphics rendering, a Furio robotic dolly-based camera system, Carbonite with a dual role of switcher and UltraChrome for keying, an NK router along with openGear.

EVS’ six-channel XT3 live production server provides live replays and slow motion, on-the-fly highlights editing and graphics sequences and has full 4K capabilities. IPDirector offers live production asset management for control of ingest feeds, comprehensive content management and third-party exchange, all managed from a single interface.
