ARHT Media beams a live hologram of Dave Jones from Sun Life Financial in Toronto to the CPBI FORUM 2019 in Vancouver.
“The hologram worked perfectly and was the talk of the conference.”
TORONTO, CANADA – July 2, 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, was pleased to collaborate with Sun Life Financial to bring a live hologram of Dave Jones, Senior Vice-President, Group Benefits, Sun Life Financial to the Canadian Pension & Benefits Institute’s (CPBI) Annual National FORUM 2019 in Vancouver, BC on June 18, 2019.
Mr. Jones joined Kevin Dougherty, Executive Vice-President, Innovation and Partnerships, Sun Life Financial on stage as a hologram for a keynote presentation titled Digital Transformation in the Benefits and Pension Industry.
“At Sun Life, we’re always looking for new ways to innovate. That’s why I was so excited to use this new technology – the hologram worked perfectly and was the talk of the conference,” said Dougherty. “It was incredibly impactful for the audience to be able to interact with Dave on stage even though he was over 4,000 miles away. As we continue on our digital transformation journey, we plan to continue to embrace more technologies such as these and be a leader in bringing them to market.”
“The financial services sector has really embraced our technology, which makes sense as the demand for their senior executives and subject matter experts is extremely high,” commented ARHT CEO Larry O’Reilly, “this first Sun Life activation came mere weeks after their executive team saw it for the first time.”
