SINGAPORE, 28 SEPTEMBER, 2020 – Vividthree Holdings Ltd (SGX:OMK) (the “Company”) is in discussions with RSG RESURGENCE ESPORTS PTE. LTD. (“Resurgence”) to co-create new esports events that will raise the bar in gaming and esports content development.
Vividthree Holdings Ltd, a diversified entertainment company specializing in the production of immersive experiences with mixed technologies, and Resurgence, a Singapore-based, Southeast Asian-focused professional esports organisation, will combine their strengths to co-produce immersive esports events that will redefine the esports fan experience in Southeast Asia.
The potential partnership will leverage on Resurgence’s expertise and network across Southeast Asia’s esports industry and tap on Vividthree’s technological expertise in augmented reality (AR) and computer-generated imagery, to bring top quality content to a broad audience in Southeast Asia.

The events, which are slated to begin from 2021 onwards, will integrate state-of-the-art immersive technology into esports content production, such as displaying high fidelity statistics, visualizations, and data-driven stories that give them deeper insights into the live game; offering unique esports experiences for offline and online attendees.
“We are proud to be partnering with Resurgence to push the creative frontiers of digital technology content in the esports space. We are excited about the application of VR and AR technologies to transform the e-athletic experience for participants and audiences, and to create new kinds of experiences that will, in-turn, transform the sporting world. We look forward to creating highly immersive and interactive events that will digitally transform esports content together with Resurgence,” said Charles Yeo, Managing Director of Vividthree.
Jayf Soh, Founder and CEO of Resurgence said, “As part of our regional expansion plans, we are targeting to reach 150 million gaming audience in Southeast Asia by 2021. The partnership brings together the best of esports content and technological innovation to elevate the content quality and engage audiences like never before. It aligns well with our goals to create exciting stories and sustainable careers for professional esports players and content creators, and we are excited to scale new heights with Vividthree.”
