The never-before-seen immersive 3D
d’strict is a Korean company that has secured a world-class media convergence technology through experimental application to a wide range of fields including performance, exhibition and game. The company introduces a new genre called ‘4D entertainment’. This is where participants create their own stories with avatars through immersive media, such as 3D, hologram and augmented reality that are applied with the elements of game, performance and installation art. ‘Live Park’ is a new platform that introduces ‘immersive 3D’ offering never-before-experienced realistic sensations and 4D contents that maximize users’ immersion level.
Developed by combing strengths of various genres, such as game, performance and exhibition, Live Park has 18 story lines that are based on immersive media. The key feature of Live Park is that the viewers can enjoy a wide range of adventures through their avatars in hyper-reality space. While the conventional 4D confined users’ experiences to feeling the wind or shaking of their chairs while watching 3D images, Live Park allows viewers to create personalized avatars and to play as entities of the contents through their avatars and therefore to enjoy differentiated experiences in mysterious hyper-reality space.
In particular, Live Park Season 1 Noi Live is designed for viewers to enjoy all attractions through Noi, the personalized avatar. Created to reflect facial features of a user, Noi recognizes viewer’s motions and imitates them on a hyper-reality space, allowing viewers to be more immersed in the experience.
Live Park provides a variety of other 4D contents, such as adventure (game & performance), hyper facade and AR, which are composite experience-type contents, exhibition applied with immersive technology and concert (performance) for which hologram, 3D and immersive technology are applied. As such, Live Park offers innovative never-before-available 4D experiences through the individually specialized solutions.
In particular, the syno star hologram technology of Live Park was used for stage setting of 2NE1’s concert that ended in great success recently and was highly praised by the audience. 2NE1 from YG Entertainment, which has concluded a business affiliation with d’strict, sent their congratulations for the launching of Live Park at the press conference. As a part of collaboration between Live Park and local and international artists, the 2NE1 hologram performance will be available in Live Park from December.
