With the advent of 5G, AI, blockchain and cloud computing, the world is ushering in a new era of technological innovation, reshaping the way we think and act, live and work in various ways. While many people are still wrapping their heads around novel concepts like virtual reality (VR) and Metaverse, they have been hot buzzwords in the tech community for quite some time.

Boasting the second largest digital economy in the world, China has been gearing up efforts in developing and investing in its VR industry over the past few years. Last November, five Chinese national authorities including the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology (MIIT) jointly unveiled a five-year action plan from 2022 to 2026, aiming to further integrate VR with industrial applications, and grow the market size of the VR industry beyond 350 billion yuan ($50.4 billion) by 2026. According to the plan, more efforts should be dedicated to supporting immersive AR, VR and mixed reality experiences, all of which are fundamental aspects of the Metaverse.

So far, VR and AR technologies have injected fresh impetus into a wide range of sectors with ever-expanding application scenarios. As part of a broader push to better ride the wave of the virtual world, Southern Finance Omnimedia Corp. (SFC) launched VR×GBA | Panoramic Viewscape in South China’s Nansha with American Vlogger, the first 4K VR 360° panoramic city exploring vlog in China, on the 4th anniversary of the release of the Outline Development Plan for the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area. Featuring cutting-edge 4K 360° VR panoramic film-making techniques and dazzling AR special effects, the vlog offers a mind-blowing, highly immersive tour around Nansha, a major strategic platform and an important opening-up gateway of the Greater Bay Area.

In this eight-minute visual feast, the audience are able to appreciate the stunning natural beauty of a verdant wetland, gasp at assorted futuristic techs in a fully automated terminal, and have a closer look at how Nansha has become a highland for innovative young entrepreneurs from across the Greater Bay Area.

The vlog premiered at the Twitter, Facebook and YouTube of SFC’s official accounts Finance World, SFC TALK, Newsflash GBA and Journey Album GBA, and the 21st Century Business Herald App. It has also been brought online on iQIYI VR App, 87 VR App and PICO Video, making a successful maiden appearance in the Metaverse. With riveting content and advanced production, the panoramic video has quickly garnered over a million views within days and received international acclaim. In the future, SFC will continue to explore the Greater Bay Area in the 360° panoramic vision, showcasing its distinctive culture and spectacular landscape to both the real and virtual world.
