Collaboration is the name of the game these days, and the world of entertainment is no different. A truly immersive entertainment experience, for example, is always equal to the sum of creative content AND top-notch technologies. So when B.immersed, an innovation initiative within our Entertainment division, wanted to demonstrate the power of its immersive video and audio technologies at TEDxGhent, it teamed up with German artist, music producer and multi-instrumentalist Martine-Nicola Rojina, among many others. The result? A mind-blowing keynote speech!

The collective, consisting of Bitstream, NoComputers, The Fridge, Shimera Studio, B.Immersed, Barco Audio Technologies, the TEDxGhent team and the Bijloke team, then collaborated closely to work out a fantastic event, keynote and an impressively immersive experience.”
