OSLO, NORWAY—Ross Videos is investing in the future, ‘The Future Universe’ that is. The Future Group, a Norwegian new media company, has announced that Ross Video has made a seven-figure investment in the company’s Series B funding round for ‘The Future Universe,’ a social entertainment platform that looks to combine TV, gaming, brand awareness and social shopping (e-commerce) into a holistic experience.
Using movie special effects with virtual reality and storytelling/product positioning for brands, the Future Universe communicates through PC, mobile and TV screen. TFG is designing the platform to require no headsets or other gear.
