TORONTO, May 03, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT” or “the Company”) (TSXV:ART), the global leader in the development, production and distribution of high-quality, low latency hologram and digital content, is pleased to announce that it has been the holographic technology supplier to a joint venture in China between Net Dragon Websoft Holdings and China Unicom. Last week this joint venture announced that it is launching the New Infrastructure “5G+Smart Education” Application Demonstration Project. Based on technologies such as 5G, VR, AR, holographic classrooms and ultra-high-definition video, it aims to provide an exemplar of “5G+Smart Education” applications with the participation of a hundred schools, a thousand classes and ten thousand learners.
This is a national project and is selected as the first batch of key new infrastructure projects in Fuzhou City. As the Project has officially kicked off, NetDragon and China Unicom Fujian Branch will integrate their respective resources and technical edges in smart education and 5G infrastructure to explore the application of 5G technology in various scenarios, including remote education, smart classroom and campus security. It targets to complete the construction of 5G smart education infrastructure in 100 schools in Fujian Province and launch over 1,000 smart education or online education demonstration classes by 2022, servicing more than 10,000 teachers and students. The Project is also aimed to be replicated across the country.
“Over the past two years we have been hired by the China Unicom and NetDragon JV to provide a number of HoloPresence™ events for government and educational officials in a variety of jurisdictions in China and since the second half of 2020 they have placed orders for our server and holographic screen technologies for permanent installations at multiple locations,” stated ARHT CEO Larry O’Reilly, “with this recent endorsement from Fuzhou City we expect orders for additional systems, which generate both upfront and recurring revenues, to increase as the program is rolled out across China.”
