Malaysian TV delivers a national first on the country’s Independence Day

To mark Malaysia’s 64th Independence Day on August 31, 2021, broadcaster RTM (Radio Televisyen Malaysia) telecasted the country’s first live xR show in which virtual worlds dazzled viewers as in-person celebrations were scaled back for yet another year, due to the coronavirus pandemic. In this case study, you will discover how disguise creative studio partner and rental provider Audio Synergy Project & Concepts (ASPC) used on-site support from disguise reseller Acoustic & Lighting System Pte. Ltd. to create a show full of amazing visuals powered by the disguise xR workflow.

The challenge

Working with a limited time, the show had a jam-packed running order that included a wide range of presentations on the government sectors plus musical performances by leading artists and virtual appearances by Malaysian athletes who recently participated in the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

As the show required many different settings for each element, it was determined that only extended reality workflows could bring it to life – without ever needing to leave RTM’s Studio 1 at Wisma TV.

ASPC also encountered additional challenges ensuring colour calibration of the physical and virtual set as well as additional issues of latency when switching cameras.



The solution

The ASPC team deployed disguise gx 2c and vx 4 media servers as well as the rx real-time render node on an in-studio xR stage that was custom-built for the show. The LED volume enabled hosts and presenters to easily interact with virtual guests and adapt to their unique environments.

With xR, virtual sets could be changed with ease: ASPC built more than 20 environments, including seascapes, tropical fish, cityscapes, country landscapes, a hospital, cars, a tank and even a jet plane.

We were proud to be part of the first broadcast in Malaysia to utilise this technology. In light of the pandemic and the prohibition of mass gatherings, the show producer was looking for the best way to execute the telecast. We always believe in the best solution to bring a story to life. Extended Reality captures the imagination without limitations and transports the audience to a whole new world.”
