A testing facility opening in September will boost industry efforts to develop new 5G applications such as virtual reality and other forms of immersive media.

Local virtual reality content producer Hiverlab and Shanghai-based virtual reality firm UCCVR are also keen to use the test-bed at the Pixel facility.

Hiverlab's StoryHive is a virtual reality and augmented reality storytelling tool for interactive presentations and broadcasting.

The company has started to explore mobile-based augmented reality broadcasting over 5G networks to make its content more accessible to consumers.

The IMDA issued the final 5G awards to Singapore's four telcos yesterday.
