Singapore – By 2012, Singapore’s media landscape will reach a significant milestone with the opening of Infinite Studios, a joint venture between Ascendas-Citramas where a world-class media eco-system will be operating physically under one roof at One North, Mediapolis. Infinite Studios, dubbed “The Studio of the Future”, will be a 260,000 sq foot facility. It will comprise approx. 45,000 sq foot of Singapore’s first soundstage facilities and supporting production offices and another 215,000 sq foot to be tenanted to inter-related media companies and lifestyle and F&B related services, and will offer an entire value chain of media related services for the local, regional and international media community. Infinite Frameworks, a leading media company that focuses on content investment, post-production, visual effects and animation services with offices in Singapore and Batam, will be the lead anchor tenant for the facility and will also manage and operate the soundstages. To live up to its billing as the “Studio of the Future”, Infinite Frameworks has also entered into a collaboration with HP, the world’s largest technology company with deep experience and expertise in the digital media space. HP is working with IFW to provide the tenants of Infinite Studios with cutting-edge digital media technologies and IT on a cloud computing model. Tenants will be able to buy and use digital media and ICT services such as remote computing, rendering, storage and collaboration services on a pay-per-use basis. The soundstages were designed in consultation with Raleigh Studios, a leading Hollywood based studio consultant sought after worldwide for its feasibility studies and guidance on developing studio operations. GlobeCast will be operating its satellite teleport and digital distribution facility from Infinite Studios. GlobeCast, with its 12 teleports and technical operations centres as well as its 17 offices in Europe, North and Latin America, the Middle East, Asia, Africa and Australia will add significant value to the users and tenants of Infinite Studios. GlobeCast’s 24/7 MCR and HD playout suite will move to Mediapolis from Parkview Square, bringing along with it its roster of clients in Asia which includes top-tier channels AXN HD, FX, History Channel HD, MGM, NBC Universal and National Geographic HD.
