MYEG Capital Invests In Chinese Virtual Live Streaming Company DEEPSCIENCE

MY E.G Services Bhd (“MYEG”) announced the
participation of its wholly-owned subsidiary MY E.G. Capital Sdn Bhd (“MYEG Capital”) in a
recent Series A financing by Beijing DeepScience Technology Ltd. (“DeepScience”), a leading
virtual live streaming, real-time animation and digital human company on last Friday.

GSR Ventures and Peakview Capital were the other investors that participated in the financing
round of tens of millions of Chinese renminbi. Previously, DeepScience had received an angel
investment from InnoAngel Fund.

Founded in April 2016 in Beijing, DeepScience deeply focuses on full-stack real-time animation
and virtual live streaming technologies, and has achieved virtual and real image synthesis and
digital human-computer interaction functions in a number of commercial fields. Its products
include “DreamMaker Lite” and “DreamMaker Plus” for professional animation content
production, “DreamMaker Easy” for fast animation content production and virtual live streaming,
as well as the recently-launched “DreamMaker Easy Plug-in” and “VHost” for ‘7*24 hours’ AI
virtual live streaming on e-commerce platform.

DeepScience founder David Cheng said that compared with traditional Internet applications, real-
time animation and virtual live streaming products have a very complicated technical process,
which involves human-computer interaction, real-time rendering, various AI actions and image
processing technologies, and hence, it is not as simple as following the route of system
integration.

Toward this end, DeepScience has created a triple-barrier to ensure the long-term sustainable
development of the enterprise. The first of these is invention patents, whereby DeepScience has
applied for 50 invention patents. The second is the development of motion capture, facial 
expression capture, gesture capture and other underlying technologies. The third area of focus
is on various application scenarios around the launch of diversified segmented products. To date,
DeepScience has already served many well-known IPs in China such as Yichan Little Monk,
Momo Girl, Bud Bear and Jiangxiaoyu. Moving forward, DeepScience expects not only to serve
more IPs, but to also help IPs better achieve commercial realisation via operation management.

Cheng said that due to the more developed and diversified e-commerce ecology in China, the
development of domestic virtual idol and virtual live streaming industry will increasingly
incorporate Chinese characteristics, which is different from Japanese models such as Hatsune
Miku and Tripping Love. Further, compared with the models in Japan and other countries that
emphasise art, the Chinese model is characterised by more emphasis on interaction, faster
monetization and more emphasis on technology. He said that with China already leading the
world in the technology of virtual live streaming and a few other fields, it will continue to expand
its advantage in the next few years. While in the past, virtual live streaming was mostly based in
Japan, now and in the future, virtual live streaming will be led by China, Cheng added.

Products such as “DreamMaker Easy Plug-in” and “VHost” have been successively launched byDeepScience. The goal of this series of products is to help e-commerce retailers on platforms
such as Tmall, Douyin/TikTok and Pinduoduo realize 7*24 hour AI automatic live streaming to
sell goods, and continuously improve the effect of generating increasing orders. Given that most
e-commerce companies don’t have their own virtual IP images, DeepScience provides hundreds
of free images for customers to use conveniently. These products are particularly popular on
Tmall and Douyin/TikTok, and have been used by a number of well-known e-commerce brands
such as Schneider, Panasonic Bathroom, Estetin and Membrane Family.

MYEG Capital is the venture investment arm of MYEG. Over the years, it has invested in
numerous technology businesses including China-based companies such as Ximmerse and
Jingle Magic, besides home-grown businesses like Agmo Studio, FashionValet and Stampede
Solutions.
