TORONTO, CANADA – Oct 9, 2019 – ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ART), the global leader in the development, production and distribution of high-quality hologram content through its patented Holographic Telepresence technology, adds another major financial sector client, most recently deploying its hologram technology at the annual Societe Generale and RISK, Derivatives Conference in London.
Working on behalf of French international bank, Societe Generale, on Oct 4, 2019, ARHT beamed a live hologram of finance guru, speaker, and author Peter Tasker from Hong Kong to London where the conference took place. As part of the event, Mr. Tasker was invited to share his extensive experience and offer a unique understanding of Asia, especially Japan, where he has spent a large part of his career. He spoke on the topic of the Japanification of Europe – Enhancing returns in a low yield environment.
WATCH a video of Peter Tasker speaking about his experience being turned into a hologram:
“Traveling all the way from Hong Kong to London to participate in a single, yet important, panel may not be the most efficient use of time,” stated ARHT CEO Larry O’Reilly, “our technology allows global experts, like Mr. Tasker, to bring his expertise where required often when they would not be available otherwise.”
While appearing as a hologram, Mr. Tasker was able to see and interact with the audience just as if he was in the room with them. Participating in the panel and offering a much more engaging experience with a sense of presence, even while he was so far away.
