On February 28th, 2019, ARHT Media successfully deployed it’s Holographic Telepresence capabilities over China Unicom’s ultra-fast 5G network to deliver our holograms with incredibly low-latency and at a superiorly high bandwidth. Proving our technology is well placed to capitalize on the upcoming rollout of 5G globally.
The 5G+Smart Education Industry Application Conference held in Wuhan, China was hosted by China Unicom and was co-organized by NetDragon, China Information Communication Technologies Group Corporation, and Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd.
To demonstrate the capabilities of the new superior 5G network and its applications within the education space, conference organizers utilized our holographic telepresence technology to deliver a open physics lecture to students in Wuhan by beaming in instructors as live holograms who could see the students and interact with them just like if they were in the room with them physically. The lecture was titled “The Wonderful Journey of Light and Communication”
Mr. Jiang, one of the leading physics teachers in the country was Captured in ARHT Media’s studio located at Netdragon’s VR Center in Fuzhou was beamed to one of the top middle schools in Wuhan where the conference and lecture were held.
In addition to the 20 students attending the class, over 300 guests were in the audience at the event observing the product case. Among those in attendance was also Mr. Cao Guangjing, Vice Governor of Hubei Province; Mr. Liang Baojun, Deputy General Manager of China Unicom; Mr.Zhao Lingyun, President of Central China Normal University; Dr. Liu Sanya, Executive Deputy Director of the National Engineering Research Center for E-Learning of Central China Normal University and Deputy Director of the National Engineering Laboratory for Educational Big Data; Dr. Xiong Li, CEO of NetDragon, and Mr. Yu Biao, Senior Vice President of NetDragon and Chairman of Huayu (China)
With the introduction of 5G in more and more markets globally, faster data speeds that offer much more capacity are soon to become a norm. ARHT is well placed to capitalize on these innovations, to be able to deliver live holograms at a superior 4K image quality that can interact with an audience in real-time with near-zero latency.
