May 20, 2020
Immersive tech agency, Future Visual, has joined Weavr consortium, the team behind the groundbreaking sports and esports immersive technology platform. Future Visual will be working alongside sector leaders ESL, University of York, dock10, REWIND, Focal Point VR and Cybula to deliver immersive personalised experiences for esports fans that can be accessed across any device, including virtual and augmented reality.
Weavr is leading innovation in the way fans experience sports content by incorporating immersive experiences for remote audiences across multiple displays, mobile devices, VR video telepresence and augmented reality overlays. This gives viewers the chance to create hyper-individual experiences, moving seamlessly between the live arena, virtual game worlds and augmented living rooms. Weavr is part of the Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund’s Audience of the Future programme, delivered through UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) to demonstrate how innovative new technologies can revolutionise how audiences experience creative and entertainment media content.
Future Visual’s expertise in delivering cross-reality immersive content using their platform VISIONxR led to the invitation to join Weavr. With strong backgrounds in entertainment and developing popular IPs, including content for Fatboy Slim’s world tours, BAFTA award-winning co-founders of Future Visual, Tim Fleming and Iestyn Lloyd, are perfectly placed to create an immersive space for esports fans as a natural development of their technological and creative ambitions.
