Virtual reality (VR) content creators StaplesVR are opening a new studio for the creation of VR and augmented reality (AR) content at Fox Studios in Sydney, Australia. The new studio will provide technology, expertise and hardware to brands, companies and agencies, including Microsoft.
StaplesVR have already revealed that work at the new studio facility will include AR experiences designed for Microsoft’s HoloLens and Metavision’s Meta 2 AR headset. The company will also be working on further development of 360-degree streaming solutions and photogrammetry technologies.
Wayne Borg, Fox Studios CEO says, “I’m delighted to welcome Aliesha, Ed, Paul and the StaplesVR team to Fox Studios. They are recognised industry leaders who are doing ground breaking work in the AR and VR space. Establishing a strong presence on the lot opens up a new set of highly innovative resources, skills and opportunities that local and global production partners can take advantage of in Sydney.”
Paul Willey, StaplesVR spokesperson says, “Aliesha and Ed are global leaders who are passionate about bringing stories to life with cutting-edge technologies and platforms. It’s exciting to be able to bring a truly unique set of resources and skills to the NSW creative community, and I look forward to the partnerships that will develop as a result.”
StaplesVR have previously opened offices in NewZealand and the UK, and are planning on continuing to embrace the opportunities afforded by the continuing development of the VR and AR industries and are hoping to be able to bring their expertise to areas such as education, consultancy and other services.
VRFocus will continue to report on developments within the VR and AR industries.
