disguise is aiming to accelerate the global adoption of immersive production with the acquisition of US-based creative studio Meptik.
Both companies will continue to operate as separate entities, with disguise leveraging Meptik’s expertise to expand its global reach, helping creatives build the next generation of extended reality and metaverse experiences.
Meptik’s teams will work with disguise to workshop new solutions, create product roadmaps, and drive new standards in entertainment technology.
The studio will aid disguise in its mission to “empower game-changing virtual experiences – at the intersection of physical and virtual worlds,” said the company.
“We have always prided ourselves on our ability to service both sides of the xR equation – the creative and the technical – and we love creating dynamic virtual worlds that blow audiences away,” said Nick Rivero, co-founder of Meptik. “Joining forces with disguise will enhance our ability to continue to serve our clients from start to finish while maintaining our down-to-earth spirit.”
disguise CEO Fernando Kufer added: “Meptik has been a trusted partner of disguise for many years, growing to excel at bringing out the very best capability for disguise solutions. Given that we have both been, in the past two years, bringing extended reality and immersive entertainment to the world, this acquisition would expand on these efforts and lead the next era for extended reality and metaverse experiences.”
