disguise acquires Polygon Labs
March 8, 2022
disguise, the visual storytelling platform and specialist in extended reality (xR) solutions, has announced its acquisition of broadcast data and content visualisation solutions platform, Polygon Labs.
Through its suite of software solutions and creative services, Polygon Labs offers a cloud-native platform and turn-key services that have been used by global broadcasters such as CNN, Univision, The Weather Channel and TV Globo.
By adding Polygon Labs to its workflow, disguise says it will build integrations that enable xR studios to have access to a wider range of broadcast workflows which empower remote production and cloud-based collaboration. Users of both disguise and Polygon Labs will be able to benefit from easy-to-manage, data-driven graphics workflows running fully native Unreal Engine, as well as extended design and production capability for graphics.
“We are very proud and delighted to welcome Polygon Labs to the disguise team! This is a key turning point for both our user communities, partners and customers, and a huge step in our direction towards cloud and new media production workflows. The future is cloud-based remote collaboration and our work with Polygon Labs will unlock a whole new level of productivity and connectivity for all our users,” said disguise CEO, Fernando Kufer.
“Over the years, Polygon Labs has helped some of the biggest broadcasters turn data into engaging stories through powerful graphics and data visualisation. Joining forces with disguise will take us into the next chapter of accelerating our journey towards graphics production workflows in the cloud. Our shared vision and passion for delivering the most engaging visual experiences will help us empower our users with a much more comprehensive solution to deliver the world’s most engaging storytelling graphics,” added Grigory Mindlin, CEO at Polygon Labs.
A new disguise New York office and xR stage is planned to open in Q3 2022 where the Polygon team will be joining the disguise East Coast team in the US.
