B2B tech REVEZ debuts first-ever web AR experience–a travel-inspired DOOH campaign

Singapore – REVEZ Corporation, a Singapore-based business-to-business (B2B) company, has announced it will be launching its first-ever web augmented reality (AR) experience, and it will be showcased across digital out-of-home (DOOH) campaign screens by DOOH media operator PGK Digital.

It should be recalled that REVEZ Corporation had previously acquired PGK Digital to expand its mediatech presence in Singapore.

Through the campaign, Singaporeans can scan a QR code on the screen, which will then transport them to an immersive experience in one of these countries – Japan, Korea or Australia. The public can also look forward to receiving a discount code from campaign partner, Burpple, for Burpple Beyond, a dining membership which offers 1-for-1 dining deals at over 500 curated restaurants. The campaign will run for four weeks starting from 11 June 2021.

By embedding web AR technology in an out-of-home digital screen, REVEZ has removed the friction typically associated with AR and transformed a conventional media experience with an interactive layer. 

Victor Neo, deputy board chairman and group CEO at REVEZ Corporation states that they are very excited to spearhead innovations within the MediaTech space. He notes that web AR is growing in prominence and it requires more than state-of-the-art computer vision, but also masterful coding capabilities to allow the AR experience to run smoothly within the constraints of standard web scripting.

“We want to breathe new life into DOOH advertising by using emerging technologies to bring delightful user experiences. This is a perfect example of how new technology like web AR can serve the community especially during a pandemic,” Neo stated.

Meanwhile, Giulio Dorrucci, founder and CEO of PGK Digital Networks, commented, “Due to the pandemic, many advertisers are seeking innovative ways to demonstrate the effectiveness of DOOH advertising in reaching heartlanders who are spending more within the neighborhood.”

IT firm REVEZ Corp. acquires PGK Digital for SG mediatech growth

Singapore – Local-based tech player REVEZ Corp. is diversifying its mediatech scope in Singapore by acquiring digital media operator PGK Digital to create greater value for digital out-of-home (DOOH) advertising networks and other media networks.

With this recent partnership, REVEZ will integrate its long-running service of experiential technology to PGK’s existing digital media networks. Integrations such as virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced interactivity are some of REVEZ’s current mediatech offerings. On the other hand, PGK’s large media presence and ownership of one the country’s largest DOOH networks will help capture the attention of consumers and strengthen the advert’s message.

For Victor Neo, Group CEO of REVEZ Corporation, the recent acquisition roots from PGK’s long run in the media industry and how its reputation stands in being a well-known firm in the industry.

“This partnership kicks off a very exciting journey as we disrupt the Mediatech landscape with our performance-driven and Creativetech solutions. Together, we want to transform the digital advertising and DOOH media landscape in more markets and grow the company’s footprints globally,” Neo stated.

As both offices are headquartered in Singapore, both companies will have exchange on industry experiences and how both strategies from each company can be merged towards unified, long-lasting campaigns.

“The partnership between PGK with its established national media networks and REVEZ with its suite of cutting-edge creative solutions is a powerful differentiator setting us apart from other conventional media owners. Interactivity and Programmatic Advertising will be our next frontier to instantly bridge the gap between our outdoor messages and the millions of residents, professionals, shoppers and commuters we reach every day,” Giulio Dorrucci, Founder and CEO of PGK Digital Networks said.
