(Toronto, ON – June 4, 2015) ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT”) (TSX-V:ART OTCQB:ARHTF) and Klick Inc. (“Klick”) jointly announced a strategic partnership to explore the use of a suite of products involving 3D, holographic and proximity marketing technology in Klick’s healthcare marketing efforts.
This partnership will develop further applications to provide high-impact content for speaking engagements, medical conferences and other healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotechnology events.
With proximity technology and gesture controls in place, ARHT’s holograms will make for a fully immersive experience while exploring more dynamic interactive visual aids, in the field of healthcare education in particular.
In the mix will be HumaGrams™, which are top of the range, photorealistic human holograms. These HumaGramsTM can interact with people in any situation that a human being can, and are currently used in a variety of educational and entertainment engagements, and can be done live or pre-recorded. Notably, they can be telecasted anywhere in the world, including to multiple places simultaneously, in real-time and in high-definition 3D. For example, Klick will capture key opinion leaders in healthcare using ARHT’s HumaGramsTM to make them more accessible to larger audiences. This partnership will develop further applications to provide high-impact content for speaking engagements, medical conferences and other healthcare, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology events.
Paul Duffy, CEO of ARHT, added, “Every year, the healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industry hosts thousands of conferences and key opinion leader events in North America alone. Both ARHT and Klick are excited about the roadmap of applications we plan on executing in the near future, including ground-breaking technologies that will enhance these experiences. Together, we will bring strategy, interactivity, proximity-based insights and tremendous scale to education and speaking events by removing time and geography from the equation.”
“As we continue to relentlessly experiment with innovative ways to enhance our clients’ messaging and break through the clutter, we are thrilled to partner with AHRT Media to deliver this cutting-edge holographic technology,” said Klick Co-founder and CEO Leerom Segal.
