SK Telecom will hold a series of free concerts every night for a week on its ifland metaverse platform from Monday to Sunday, the telecommunications company announced on Monday.

The “Metaverse Music Festival,” featuring eight R&B singers and others, will use a 3D video technology called volumetric 3D capture for the first time for an online concert, according to the company.

Volumetric technology uses over 100 cameras to capture a person’s movement from all angles and translates the recordings into a 3-dimensional graphic much faster and cheaper than generating computer images from scratch.

The singers will be displayed inside the island, and viewers can participate with their island avatars to enjoy the performance and interact with each other.

The participating singers are: Jujkae, Younha, Jamie, Suran, Minsu, Lee Lu-li, Yoon Ji-young and Youra. The singers will also hold meet and greet events with fans with their avatars on Monday and Thursday.

In August, YB Band’s rock singer Yoon Do-hyun and R&B singer 10cm will also hold online volumetric concerts on the island.

SK Telecom will create other online content using volumetric technology, the company said in a press release.

“We hope consumers can enjoy a new kind of realistic content with our ‘Metaverse Music Festival,'” said Yang Maeng-seok, head of Metaverse unit at SK Telecom. “We will continue to provide unique content that can only be enjoyed at ifland.”
