On July 4, Pledis Entertainment released an official statement to the press, confirming former After School member and former 'Produce 48' contestant Kaeun's departure from the label. Kaeun debuted as a member of After School back in 2012, promoting in a variety of fields as an artist under Pledis for approximately 8 years, and we are greatly thankful that where ever she was, she gave her best efforts. Ahead of her contract expiration, we talked over the topic of renewal with Kaeun. We were able to confirm our mutual respect and trust for each other, and discussed the renewal in great depth. However, as we shared differing opinions in directions, we agreed to a beautiful goodbye instead of a renewal. We would like to take this opportunity to once again thank Kaeun for trusting in our company and walking in the same path during all this time.

Facebook Continues Virtual-Reality Gaming Push With New Acquisition

Article | February 26, 2020

Facebook's Oculus division announced on Tuesday that it acquired Sanzaru Games, a video game company known for working on titles in the Sly Cooper and Spyro the Dragon franchises. Sanzaru also has experience developing virtual-reality (VR) games, having released titles exclusively for Facebook's Oculus platform including VR Sports Challenge and Ripcoil in 2016 and Asgard's Wrath in 2019. Sanzaru was the first developer to partner with Oculus in making games, so it's not surprising to see it become part of the broader Facebook family. Facebook hinted that it would buy additional VR development companies when it acquired Beat Games in November, and additional acquisitions could follow soon after the Sanzaru deal.

The streaming, AI and VR-assisted future of listening

Article | March 29, 2020

We’ve already seen a boom in smart speakers. This and the unleashing of sound experiences from any sort of tether are fuelling the audio revolution. Streaming services like Spotify and Apple Music mean sound is no longer dependent on a carrier medium or dedicated device. Instead, listening has become mobile and on-demand. Like an invisible companion, sound accompanies us wherever we go, without interruption. In the future, I believe that the distance between listener and sound will shrink even more. How so?
