ESP xMedia Pte. Ltd ( is a visionary deep-tech company founded with a global vision to disrupt traditional broadcasting by harnessing the power of three future-proof pillars: Cloud, Video and Mobile.

Its founder, Dr. Tham Jo Yew, was the Head of the Video R&D Department at A*STAR Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R). Together with his core research engineering team, having a combined video-centric experience of over 60 man-years, they have successfully architected, developed and deployed its flagship ESPxCloud video platform, which is operating globally across multiple continents.

The 100% Made-in-Singapore suite of end-to-end video platform technologies comprises live capture, encoding, ingestion, cloud storage, user and content management, access control, global media delivery, multi-viewport actionable players, and more. It runs natively without downloads or installation on any popular web browsers, as well as on Android and iOS mobile apps.  It has been designed from ground-up to empower video content providers and event owners to easily realize live multi-camera, multi-location webcasting with Gen-Z actionable video experiences.  Its innovative “Actionable Elements” (comprising Personalize, Interact, Engage, Monetize) are seamlessly integrated into the core video platform to create unprecedented in-player experiences beyond those incumbents’ video solutions in the market.

In early 2018, Dr. Tham saw the opportunity to complement the Singapore-based R&D team with a Vietnam-based Engineering team, and had chosen to work with Tech JDI as its trusted partner to kickstart his expansion plan.
