- Tencent Cloud could potentially integrate its virtual world-related products into Strange Universe’s platform.
- One of Tencent Cloud’s offerings available to Strange Universe is its real-time cloud rendering service, Virtual Interactive Space (VIS).
- This service can be used to create virtual spaces for hosting virtual live broadcasts and conferences.
Tencent’s cloud unit and Singapore-based Web3 company Strange Universe Technology today announced the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to co-create virtual world experiences for businesses.
In this partnership, Tencent Cloud will integrate its VR products and cloud solutions into Strange Universe’s VR platform to help businesses thrive in the virtual world.
One of Tencent Cloud’s offerings available to Strange Universe is its real-time cloud rendering service, Virtual Interactive Space (VIS). Combined with Tencent Cloud’s Tencent Real Time Communication (TRTC), Game Multimedia Engine (GME), and digital avatar products and services, VIS also provides multi-scene virtual space delivery capabilities covering virtual live broadcasts, virtual conferences, and exhibitions as well as events, among others, allowing businesses to easily build up various scenario templates.
“As a Web3.0 company dedicated to exploring creative ideas in digital identity, practicality and interoperability, we are pleased to be working with Tencent Cloud in building an immersive virtual space,” said Edmund Ooi, CEO of Strange Universe Technology. “Our goal is to provide an integrated hybrid and efficient virtual reality technology platform, and by leveraging the highly reliable, high-quality and secure solutions of Tencent Cloud, we have taken significant steps towards achieving our mission.”
This is not the first time Tencent Cloud has worked with Strange Universe Technology. Prior to the signing of this new MoU, Tencent Cloud has already provided Strange Universe with a range of IaaS products to support its operations in the virtual world.
“As the physical and digital spaces emerge, more businesses have started looking to adapt and integrate their services in virtual worlds. Tencent Cloud has always been committed to assisting companies’ digital journeys through virtual world-related products and cloud solutions, and we look forward to working with Strange Universe Technology to open more doors of opportunities in creating a virtual world experience,” said Krittee Manoleehagul, Vice President of Tencent Cloud International for Southeast Asia.
In June, Tencent jumped into the metaverse with the formation of an extended reality unit which will build the company’s extended reality business, including both hardware and sources, and will be led by Tencent Games Global Chief Technology Officer Li Shen. However, it shuttered its NFT operations in China last month amid government scrutiny.
