disguise expands its creative influence with acquisition of U.S. studio Meptik
disguise has recently acquired the Atlanta-based immersive entertainment specialists Meptik. Both companies will continue to operate as separate entities. Nevertheless, the mother company will leverage Meptik’s expertise to expand its global reach, helping creatives build the next generation of extended reality and metaverse experiences.
Meptik specialises in creating dynamic virtual worlds. Their clients range from film studios to lifestyle brands, Fortune 500s, musical artists, and more. The company works to define what’s next for extended reality (xR), augmented reality (AR), mixed reality (AR), and virtual production (VP). They are led by Sarah Linebaugh and Nick Rivero.
“We have always prided ourselves on our ability to service both sides of the xR equation – the creative and the technical – and we love creating dynamic virtual worlds that blow audiences away,” says Nick Rivero, Co-Founder of Meptik. “Joining forces with disguise will enhance our ability to continue to serve our clients from start to finish while maintaining our down-to-earth spirit.”
“Meptik has been a trusted partner of disguise for many years, growing to excel at bringing out the very best capability for disguise solutions. Given that we have both been, in the past two years, bringing extended reality and immersive entertainment to the world, this acquisition would expand on these efforts and lead the next era for extended reality and metaverse experiences,” says disguise CEO Fernando Küfer.
