Virtual Elvis

American Idol creator Simon Fuller is partnering with Pulse Evolution Corp. to co-produce a series of entertainment properties and virtual reality experiences featuring Pulse’s digital human, or Digital Life, technology.

Fuller’s XIX Entertainment and Pulse Evolution, the company behind the holograms of Tupac Shakur at Coachella in 2012 and Michael Jackson at 2014’s Billboard Music Awards, said they expect to introduce their all-new form of entertainment to global audiences in the next 18 months.

The partnership said it's aiming to combine the highest quality visual imagery, including hyper-realistic digital humans, with the most advanced display technologies to create immersive content for stage, virtual reality, augmented reality and artificial intelligence.

The first project will be the digital development of Elvis Presley in preparation for a live show to showcase the iconic performer at his prime. Fuller also is developing two other acts: a fictional character for young fans and another persona is based on a little-known artist who he believes might have a better shot at success as a digital entity, according to the Wall Street Journal.

Pulse Evolution was founded by John Textor, Rene Eichenberger, Frank Patterson and Jim Berney, who were originally owners and senior executives of Hollywood visual effects company Digital Domain. The company is based in Palm Beach, Fla., with production offices and digital studios in Los Angeles and Marin County.

Earlier this year, Pulse Evolution received investments from China’s Original Force Computer Animation Co. Ltd and Shanghai U9 Game Co. Ltd., both of which are portfolio investments of Tencent Holding Ltd., a $200 billion global conglomerate.
