Through its patented Augmented Reality Holographic Telepresence platform, ARHT is eliminating barriers of time and geography making it possible to transport key figures and deliver them to a global audience in three-dimensional views and in real time.
The press conference was a strategic partnership with Audi, AHRT Media and Brands and Emotions. Together, they executed a seamless event impressing thousands as they beamed in the head coaches of the participating teams for the 2017 Audi Cup. Among them, Jürgen Klopp, manager for Liverpool FC based in the UK, and Diego Simeone, manager for Atlético Madrid based in Spain appeared as HumaGrams. They joined Carlo Ancelotti, manager of Bayern Munich who appeared in person. The final team to join the Audi Cup is yet to be announced.
“On May 12th, 2017, ARHT reached a significant milestone and successfully executed the first holographic press conference in the world,” said Rene Bharti, Founder and Chairman of ARHT Media. “We are setting the stage for how people everywhere engage and interact with key influencers in nearly every sector including sport, healthcare, technology, hospitality, transportation, education and retail.”
The 2017 Audi Cup is a biennial two-day pre-season football tournament that features four teams, and is staged at the Allianz Arena in Munich, Germany. Attendance is set to exceed 100,000 on opening day.
“We’re pleased to have worked with the team at ARHT Media, and use their holographic telepresence technology during our press conference announcing the Audi Cup”, said Thomas Glas, Head of Sports Marketing for AUDI AG. “The realistic nature of the holograms was amazing. It was as though Jürgen Klopp and Diego Simeone were actually there in person and journalists had no problem interacting with the holograms. This technology is truly unique and helped save a great deal of travel time and schedule coordination for our speakers.”
Collectively, Jürgen Klopp and Diego Simeone were able to save a total of 5,300 kilometers of air travel and some 15 hours of travel time.
“By using ARHT’s holograms it enabled us to ensure the trainers were on board. During the planning stage for this press conference, we immersed ourselves deeply in the hologram technology and we can envision many more future implementations for other interested brands” said Ruediger Ohl, Managing Partner of Brands and Emotions.
“ARHT Media is very proud of the holographic show that we executed for the 2017 Audi Cup. It was an incredible opportunity to showcase our technology on a global stage. With this technology and its endless applications, it is truly remarkable what we can achieve, and this is only the beginning” said Bharti.
