Ross Theater on the Warner Bros. studio lot on January 30, 2019.

The Advanced Imaging Society recognizes companies who represent the next generation of consumer technology, and the awards are voted by members of the Hollywood creative and technology community working in motion pictures, television and emerging media. The Lumiere Awards recognize outstanding international achievement in the creation of immersive storytelling using advanced visual technologies like Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, High Dynamic Range, Stereo 3D, 360 Video, High Frame Rate, Artificial Intelligence, Real-Time Rendering and more.

KERV Interactive was awarded top honors for its hi-tech wizardry in entertainment media along with many top Oscar nominees, including: “A Star Is Born,” “Black Panther,” “Ralph Broke the Internet,” “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” (which was presented by Tom Cruise) and more. Previous Lumiere Award winners include some of Hollywood’s biggest creative leaders, such as Martin Scorsese, Ang Lee, Victoria Alonso, Jon Favreau and Jefferey Katzenberg.

“I wanted to start by thanking The Advanced Imaging Society for this honor of us being here tonight,” said Marika Roque, EVP of Media and Technology at KERV Interactive, accepting the award. “One of my favorite things about our technology is everyone has that moment when you’re watching beautiful content – which all of you are creating – but you don’t know where to get that red sweater, or who that actress is, where she’s from, or where  the scene was filmed. We can do that at KERV, and we are solving that problem. I would also like to thank the teams at eBay, Blue 449 and 72andSunny for working with us and allowing us to make their content interactive and drive up their engagement by 300 percent on already beautiful content. I’d also like to thank the team here, Dan, Jon, Gary, Wendy, Jason and the team down in Austin, Texas for making this all possible. Together let’s KERV the world – let’s make it more interactive.”
