On June 24th 2015, ARHT Media along side NetDragon beamed a live HumaGram™ of Larry King from Los Angeles to audiences in Hong Kong, showcasing our companies ability to holo-port a person in real-time onto a stage anywhere across the globe.
The event was centered around the announcement of a joint-venture between NetDragon and ARHT Media which will see our technology exposed to millions of people in China, India and other countries in the Asia Pacific region.
The venture includes a multi-year exclusive license of ARHT’s technology as well as a license of NetDragon’s mobile-focused community, instant messaging and app store technologies, all of which will be used to unlock a network of opportunities for the use of HumaGrams™ for applications focused on developing the world’s largest online learning community. Earlier this year NetDragon made a significant investment in ARHT and is a major shareholder in our company.
The event which took place at the Hong Kong Science and Technology Park included a presentation on NetDragon and ARHT Media’s overall strategy as well as a live interaction with Television Host Larry King, who appeared as a HumaGram and was joined on stage with ARHT’s founder’s Paul Anka and Rene Bharti as well as our CEO Paul Duffy and Dr. Simon Leung, Vice Chairman and Executive Director of NetDragon
