Singapore Opens Door for Large-scale Film and TV Productions

SINGAPORE, Jan. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

  • Singapore's largest soundstages with green-screen capabilities fully operational
  • Full suite of digital media services from production to transmission available under one roof

Singapore has expanded the scale of its film and broadcast production capabilities with Infinite Studios going fully operational with immediate effect. The official opening was graced by Singapore's Minister for Communications and Information, Dr Yaacob Ibrahim.

The Infinite Studios building houses Singapore's largest state-of-the-art soundstages, and brings under one roof a full suite of digital media services, from production to transmission, for the production of large-scale television, film and animation shows.

The 24,078-square metre development is strategically located within Mediapolis, Singapore's digital media hub located in one-north, the knowledge and innovation hub in South West Singapore.

The two soundstages operated by anchor tenant Infinite Studios come equipped with green-screen capabilities, pre-visualization and stereoscopic technology, and are able to support productions that require intricate set builds and multi-cam operations and visual effects. This enhances Singapore's ability to attract more international productions to be anchored in the country.

To date, the soundstages have been used to shoot and produce programmes such as popular Australian children's TV show, Hi-5, as well as other television commercials and reality shows. This year, two international feature films are slated for production.

Ms Koh Lin-Net, Chief Executive Officer of Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA), said, "Infinite Studios is a strong addition to Singapore's media ecosystem. With state-of-the-art soundstages and a full suite of facilities and services available, Singapore is now well-positioned to take on larger-scale projects and produce high quality local and international productions which meet international standards. We encourage international Film and TV companies to partner with our local media industry to anchor their productions here in Singapore."

The Infinite Studios development also hosts a vibrant media ecosystem made up of 13 top Singaporean and international media companies, including broadcast operator, Globecast Asia; channel provider Discovery Networks; Japanese game-maker Namco Bandai; global media company, Haymarket Media; and international advertising agency M & C Saatchi.

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

A completely new computing platform is on the horizon. They’re called Microservers by some, ARM Servers by others, and sometimes even ARM-based Servers. No matter what you call them, Microservers will have a huge impact on the data center and on server computing in general.

This is a new category of computing platform that is available today and is predicted to have triple-digit growth rates for some ...
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...
Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, co-founder and CTO of Octoblu, walk you through how Oct...
