Driven by our community
Over the past year, our xR technology has spearheaded over 200 immersive virtual events around the world in more than 35 countries, enabling our key partners to deliver projects like the 2020 MTV Video Music Awards and Eurosport’s US Open coverage, live performances from artists like Katy Perry and Alicia Keys, in-game concerts like J.Balvin in Fortnite, corporate presentations from Siemens and SAP, and on-set virtual production for film, episodic TV and commercial shoots. These partners have been instrumental in the development of disguise xR, as they’ve pressure tested and pioneered the workflow across countless projects, sharing their experience and feedback with our team to help push the technology forward.

Fernando Kufer, CEO at disguise
2021 has been off to a successful start, as we’ve recently received backing from The Carlyle Group, one of the world’s largest and most diversified global investment firms with $246 billion of assets under management. With Unreal Engine developers at Epic Games also taking a minority share in our firm, we have been able to enter a new phase of our growth development, focusing on international expansion, continued innovation, and enhanced support and product offerings for our customers.
Earlier this year, disguise was also recognised as one of the Financial Times’ top 1000 fastest growing businesses for 2021 and additionally secured a spot in the 12th annual Sunday Times HSBC International Track 200, becoming the sole live event technology provider among Britain’s mid-market companies with the fastest-growing international sales. This year alone, we have received several industry recognitions, including a Tech Leadership award for Best Production Technology, and shortlists in two categories in the Inavation Awards, Best Event Technology and Best Research and Development in partnership with our CSP partner White Light.
