Discovery Networks VR
Since 2016, Hiverlab has been working with Discovery Networks APAC and Discovery VR to create a series of 360-degree documentaries. Our recent series in collaboration with Burning Bush Films, Abandoned, gives the audience an eye-opening experience by bringing them back to time in Hashima, Japan, and Tuol Sleng, Cambodia, to witness the heart-breaking history.
For the two episodes, we implemented a unique special effects treatment, using archives images and videos to overlay on the immersive present-day environments. The stories were selected for some showcases at the Parliament House of Singapore and ASEAN Ministers Responsible for Information (AMRI) with the Storyhive system being used for the multi-user VR screenings.
Huge thanks to the team for working on this. It was really a pleasure working with you. You guys are one of the best vendors I've worked with - the amount of initiative and quality of ideas that come out from the team was really amazing. Not forgetting your speedy turnaround time! So thank you all!

I have worked very successfully with Hiverlab over the past few years on a heritage project based in Cyprus. Hiverlab is the perfect partner for scholars such as myself who are 'content-rich' but less well-versed in the innovative technologies and media to make the work truly impactful on both popular and pedagogical platforms. I will certainly continue to work with them. They are VERY highly recommended!

The advantage of this Storyhive VR programme is that it allows the trainers to communicate with a relatively large class and for the students to interact with one another, which is very difficult in a real-life dive situation. In this particular context, we can train a large number of people, not necessarily just employees, at the same time, yet maintain a level of interaction in instruction that cannot be achieved underwater. The demonstration of the VR prototype has been positive.
