New $5m augmented reality studio in S’pore is first of its kind in South-east Asia

SINGAPORE – Local media tech company Oceanus Media Global (OMG) has launched a production studio equipped with technology similar to what was used to create virtual sets for the Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian.

The walls of the $5 million studio in Ubi Road are covered by LED panels displaying realistic backgrounds created and rendered in Unreal Engine 4, a 3D graphics tool that is widely used in video game and film production.

The movements of physical cameras in the studio are synced up with virtual cameras, creating the illusion that someone standing in front of the LED wall is inside the virtual environment.
