Prox and Reverie awarded ‘Broadcast Futures’ funding

Doncaster-based Prox and Reverie have been awarded £100,000 research and development funding through XR Stories. The funding will be used to create an immersive experience for the Science Museum Group at the National Science and Media Museum in Bradford in 2022.

XR Stories, StoryFutures Academy and the National Science and Media Museum will work together to support Prox and Reverie to develop a groundbreaking experience which will deliver a magical, communal and frictionless experience to visitors of the museum. Prox and Reverie will use and create both emerging and bespoke technologies to draw audiences into a storyworld that explores the future of broadcasting.

The experience will be part of the National Science and Media Museums’ ‘Broadcast 100’ celebrations, part of a series of coordinated exhibitions, displays and events to mark the 100 year anniversary of the BBC and 40 year anniversary of Channel 4.

The installation will run from late July 2022 until at least January 2023.

Prox and Reverie are a leading provider of groundbreaking immersive content and experiences. Their one of a kind approach is made possible by their mixed reality studio concept  – The Forge, which is purpose built to help you fuse physical and digital experiences with unprecedented speed, flexibility and wonder. Prox and Reverie have previously undertaken a number of successful R&D projects with XR Stories including Interchange, Glimmer and Symphony,  and Shapeshifter
