WIMI Hologram Cloud Builds a 5G Remote Communication Holographic Cloud Ecosystem, While VR and AR Will Be Applied to Apple Conference


HONG KONG, May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Tailor Insight, the fintech market research organization, recently released a research report “The VR/AR was applied to the Apple conference, and WIMI Hologram Cloud builds a 5G remote communication holographic cloud ecosystem”. On April 21, Beijing time, the US technology giant Apple held a spring conference and released anti-lost tags AirTag, new iMac, new iPad, and other products. In addition, Apple also announced that it will implement a paid subscription model for Podcasts in its App Store. At the same time, users can also get an ad-free listening experience by paying creators.

It is worth noting that an AR Easter egg was attached to the website page of the conference. When you visit the event website with your iPhone or iPad, you can see an AR version of the color logo. If you turn on the camera and move your phone, you will see a virtual moving screen of the logo. Besides, there are media reports that Apple may release an AR headset at the Worldwide Developer Conference (WWDC 2021) held on June 8, Beijing time.

AR can be expected in the future

XR products have opened the next imagination of consumer electronics. According to the forecast of IDC, global VR products will grow by about 46.2% year-on-year in 2021, and the compound growth rate from 2020 to 2024 will be about 48%. In 2025, global AR equipment shipments will reach 24.4 million units (the total shipment of global VR/AR in 2020 was only 5.84 million units). Strategy Analytics predicts that the total shipment of XR will increase 6 times by 2025, and the revenue of XR hardware will exceed $28 billion in 2025.

On the evening of April 5th, Beijing time, Apple CEO Tim Cook said in an interview with the media that AR is “critical” to Apple’s future. He took interview conversations as an example, thinking that AR can provide graphs to help explain and effectively improve conversation efficiency. In addition, he mentioned that AR has mobile-related applications in health care, education, gaming, and retail, and the prospect is bright. Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Guo said in a research report released on March 8 that Apple’s history of success is essentially the history of the development of innovative human-machine interfaces for consumer electronic products. It is predicted that MR/AR is the next key technology of innovative human-machine interface to define the electronic product. This is also the reason why Apple has invested heavily in MR/AR. However, instead of being exposed to the vision of the mass, Apple’s AR device only can be heard of its information. In the latest interview, Cook did not give much explanation for the term “Glow and Behold” in the WWDC 2021 invitation letter.

At present, mainstream VR head-mounted display equipment providers include Facebook’s Oculus, Sony, HTC International, and Microsoft. At the end of March, the US Army announced that it had awarded Microsoft a $21.9 billion contract to provide the military with at least 120,000 AR equipment. The Xinhua News Agency said that after receiving the contract, Microsoft will produce holographic glasses based on HoloLens for soldiers to fight and exercise in a unified system. Prior to this, Microsoft supplied the US military with integrated visual augmentation system (IVAS) model products which $418 million in 2018.

AR image augmented reality (Augment Reality) is the intersection of artificial intelligence and human-computer interaction. It is a technology that calculates the position and angle affected by the camera in real-time and adds corresponding images, videos, and 3D models. It is the technology that organically integrates the real world and the virtual world information. AR superimposes physical information (mainly including visual and auditory information) that is difficult to experience in a certain time and space in the real world through computer simulation and then superimposes, applying virtual information to the real world. After that, these can be perceived by the human senses to achieve a sensory experience that transcends reality.

Compared with VR, AR emphasizes more on the information added in real scenes. The viewing screen is different from VR’s fully enclosed helmet devices, mainly including transparent reality headsets, mobile phones, and handheld projections. At present, the main application areas are industry, commerce, and games, such as AR navigation.

AR/VR applications are the core applications of vertical industries. The immersive experience and interactive experience have enabled AR/VR applications to be widely promoted in the early stage of 5G network construction.

AR/VR is a product of the integration of next-generation information technologies such as near-eye reality, perception interaction, rendering processing, network transmission, and content production. Under the new situation, high-quality AR/VR services have gradually increased requirements for bandwidth and delay. Meanwhile, the rate has gradually increased from 25Mbps to 3.5Gbps, and the delay is reduced from 30ms to less than 5ms.

In this context, continuous innovation in the AR field has triggered the adoption of this technology in several industries and industry verticals and is driving the market growth. For example, the AR smart glasses market is accelerating, from a niche product to a solver of industrial and corporate problems, and rapidly expanding to the consumer market. The main participants in this industry include Google, Microsoft, Facebook, Magic Leap, and WIMI Hologram Cloud.

As a holographic AR company listed on NASDAQ, WIMI Hologram Cloud has once again attracted the attention of the public. WIMI utilizes its strong technical capabilities and infrastructure to provide excellent products and services. WIMI has won the bid for China Mobile and the second phase of the holographic remote interaction of the media cloud platform, and it is redefining China Mobile’s communication method through “5G + holographic remote”. Its core business is holographic AR technology for software engineering, media manufacturing services, cloud, and big data.

WIMI was founded in 2015, and it focuses on holographic cloud services, mainly in vehicle-mounted AR holographic HUD, 3D holographic pulse LiDAR, head-mounted light field holographic equipment, holographic semiconductor, holographic cloud software, holographic car navigation, and other professional fields, covering multiple links of AR technology, including holographic vehicle-mounted AR technology, 3D holographic pulse LiDAR technology, holographic vision semiconductor technology, holographic software development, holographic AR advertising technology, holographic AR entertainment technology, holographic ARSDK payment, interactive holographic communication, and so on. It is a holographic cloud comprehensive technical solution provider. In terms of smart technology, LiDAR is the technological equivalent of a set of eyes. With the rapid development of intelligent robots, autonomous vehicles, autonomous drones, medical imaging, Internet of Things, and other industries, LiDAR’s market scale should grow exponentially in the future. To better meet its customers’ needs, WIMI plans to launch its WiMiHoloPulse LiDAR products in three phases. WIMI plans for WiMiHoloPulse LiDAR to be a small-sized, light weight, and multi-functional holographic pulse LiDAR sensor with a long detection range, wide field of view, and unique scanning pattern. WIMI also plans for WiMiHoloPulse LiDAR to come with its own point cloud interface and to not require an additional adapter for connection when under operation. The WiMiHoloPulse LiDAR solution will offer a software development kit along with its hardware product. This kit will feature such functionalities as, target detection, categorization, and measurement. WIMI will integrate software recognition algorithms into WiMiHoloPulse LiDAR to provide solutions across various industries, including autonomous driving, environmental perception, 3D holographic imaging, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), traffic management, and 3D printing, which will help to rapidly expand the market for holographic technology applications.

As the 5G holographic communication network bandwidth conditions change, the 5G holographic application market will usher in an explosion. High-end applications such as holographic interactive entertainment and holographic conferences will gradually become popular in holographic social, holographic communication, holographic navigation, and holographic home applications. WIMI Hologram Cloud plans to use holographic AI face recognition technology and holographic AI face-changing technology as its core technologies. Moreover, it will use multiple technologically innovative systems to support holographic cloud platform services and 5G communication holographic applications.

5G’s unique MEC edge-to-computing technology is the key to ensuring low latency. It can fundamentally break through the VR/AR localization and realize VR/AR cloud services. Meanwhile, it can provide users with the real-time interactive experience in large-scale variety shows, sports events, and other programs experience and enhance the real immersion of VR.

With the development of cloud VR technology, lightweight head-mounted display devices are expected to be rapidly developed and popularized. The mobility demand for VR technology will increase immediately, and the demand for 5G technology will continue to increase.

At present, VR has been widely used in industries such as real estate, exhibitions, games, and entertainment. With the arrival of 5G, VR is expected to be applied to more business scenarios.

RTI Announces the First Software Framework Designed for Widely Distributed Autonomous Systems


SUNNYVALE, Calif., May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Real-Time Innovations (RTI), the largest software framework company for autonomous systems, today announced the latest version of its industry-leading software framework, RTI Connext®. Connext 6.1 is the first software framework designed to address the development and deployment challenges faced by companies building remotely-operated autonomous systems.

Autonomous systems must operate in inaccessible, remote, or hazardous environments. Examples include underwater drones, remotely-accessible medical devices, space systems, and construction and mining robots. Since artificial intelligence cannot handle all situations, these applications must use remote operators to supervise and intervene in difficult scenarios.

Connectivity for distributed control is extremely challenging. Applications require high reliability and real-time performance even though connectivity in these inhospitable environments is often unreliable and low bandwidth. Depending on the operator’s proximity, communication may also span local, wide area, public and private networks.

Connext 6.1 introduces features to enable easy real-time remote operation over any network. For instance, if the network connection changes as the system moves, connectivity is seamless without reconnecting, secure without renegotiating, and reliable without losing information. Thus, remote operations can continue in real time without interruption.

Enterprise networking assumes reliable, stable connections and latency insensitivity. Unlike other distributed software frameworks for the enterprise, Connext 6.1 supports and optimizes fast communications across highly variable local (LAN) and wide-area networks (WAN). Moreover, Connext 6.1 does not require software changes to support diverse network types. Its Application Programming Interfaces (API) abstracts the underlying networks, allowing developers to target any environment. Connext 6.1 offers the first practical design for control of remote autonomous systems.

“To empower innovation and accelerate value delivery to our global customers, we are developing a mining technology ecosystem supported by a platform on RTI Connext DDS,” said Anthony Reid, Director of Platforms and Applications at Komatsu. “With RTI Connext DDS, we’re able to connect data from all different types of machines, mining processes, systems, and third-party applications while leveraging edge and cloud computing to enable interoperability, autonomy, and optimization. The Real-Time WAN Transport and Cloud Discovery Service in Connext 6.1 help us to overcome technical hurdles while simplifying our software architecture.”

Connect Geographically-Distributed Systems
New capabilities in Connext 6.1 that ease the development and deployment of geographically distributed systems include:

  • Real-Time WAN Transport provides reliable, low latency and secure communication over lossy, low bandwidth, and public networks. It supports Network Address Translation (NAT) traversal and mobile applications with changing Internet addresses.
  • Cloud Discovery Service simplifies deployment of dynamic systems in which applications, assets, and their network addresses may not be known at configuration time. It provides a means for applications to discover each other and directly communicate, peer-to-peer. This minimizes latency and maximizes throughput. It is far superior to traditional centralized broker solutions.
  • Built-in data compression improves efficiency over bandwidth-constrained networks. Compression maximizes bandwidth use, lowering overhead and latency while increasing throughput. A choice of compression algorithms and levels allows optimization of processor versus network utilization for different payload types.

“The WAN Transport feature is one of the fastest and easiest ways to achieve peer-to-peer UDP WAN communication, especially for projects already using RTI Connext DDS, but also for those using other middleware or even starting from scratch,” said Charles Cross, Co-founder and CTO at Mission Robotics. “At Mission Robotics, we were able to create a proof of concept from scratch that allowed us to remotely control and monitor a robot over the internet in only three hours. Considering the time and resources that would have gone into this effort otherwise, this is an absolute game changer.”

“Space exploration opens new domains in science and technology, often leading the way for earthbound advances. For example, robots are essential for exploration, and will be used for complex operations such as building and maintaining infrastructure in space. Although autonomy is developing quickly, it’s not enough alone. These systems must combine human and machine intelligence. That allows robots to act as ‘avatars’ for the human: the humans handle direction and complex situations, but the robots are smart enough to carry out the actual operation,” said Dr. Thomas Krueger, Human Robot Interaction Laboratory, European Space Agency. “This type of cooperative remote guidance is critical for all intelligent systems, including those on earth. It’s not simple; guiding a semi-autonomous system from a distance over an unreliable network doesn’t work with enterprise networking technologies. RTI Connext 6.1, with the new Real-Time WAN transport, optimizes speed and repairs lost packets, letting us reliably control our system from orbit despite the inherent latencies. RTW will enable connected transportation and other autonomous systems to function. It is fundamental for efficient, scalable, and secure teleoperation.”

Efficiently Develop Large-Scale and Heterogeneous Systems
In addition to its support for complex networking environments, new features in Connext 6.1 facilitate the development of any large-scale and heterogeneous distributed system.

  • Support for .NET Core 5 lets developers use C# and run their applications on any platform that supports .NET Standard 2.0. In addition to Windows, this includes Linux, macOS and the Unity game engine.
  • A new System Designer tool provides a graphical way to easily and intuitively specify the configuration and interfaces in a Connext-based system. This helps ensure that applications adhere to a common architecture and can interoperate in a plug-and-play manner.
  • Administration Console includes enhanced graphical views to make it easier to visualize the components of live large-scale systems and their interconnectivity. This allows OEMs and systems integrators to better observe behavior during test and deployment, and to more quickly identify configuration or network problems.

“Innovations in autonomy are accelerating at an unparalleled pace. As systems become more connected, intelligent and mobile, the challenges surrounding development and security remain highly complex,” said David Barnett, Vice President of Products and Markets at RTI. “RTI has always been dedicated to helping our customers solve the unique obstacles that go along with developing autonomous systems, and with the latest update to our Connext product, we are proud to provide our customers with the foundational software for their remotely-operated autonomous systems. From mission-critical medical devices to underwater drones and mining robots, it is our customers’ cutting-edge technology that is going to change the world for the better. We are honored to be a part of the journey.”

Lifesprk, leader in whole person senior services, and Tealwood Senior Living, leaders in senior living management, have partnered to bring 35 senior living properties across multiple states under Lifesprk Senior Living.

“The current senior housing market, accelerated by the pandemic, created significant opportunity to provide a markedly different approach to senior living,” said Joel Theisen, RN, BSN, Lifesprk CEO. “Both Lifesprk and Tealwood are well-positioned to seize that opportunity by joining forces to serve seniors more fully, connecting them to everything they need in one system to age magnificently and transform the way people experience senior living right now.”

Howie Groff, President of Tealwood Senior Living shared that Tealwood’s strength has been operating a strong suite of senior living options with a holistic approach. “For years, we’ve been excited about the opportunities for innovation with predictive medicine and integrating value-based models,” said Groff. “The timing was right to build off our strong foundation and bridge the technology – Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning – with community-based services to drive highly customized client-centered experiences within senior housing. Together with Lifesprk, we are able to tap into this powerful platform and improve the senior living experience.”

“This is a fundamental shift in how a wellness experience can be delivered where people live,” explained Theisen. “Change is needed. There’s a lot of pressure being placed on occupancy and at the same time, workforce availability is unable to keep pace.” According to data from the National Investment Center for Seniors Housing & Care (NIC) and Minnesota State Demographer, there has been a 6.8% drop in senior housing occupancy over the past 10 years which began long before the pandemic and an anticipated 46% drop in labor needed to support a growing aging population.

“Instead of addressing myopic, acute needs, we can partner to broaden our capabilities bringing the clinic to them including acute care at home and integrating holistic approaches in a way that’s never been done before. Together, we are combining reimbursement opportunities that create better life experiences with a focus on home, housing, and wellness, not one or the other.”

Tapping Expertise of Dr. Bill Thomas

Dr. Bill Thomas, internationally renowned geriatrician and Lifesprk’s Independence Officer is a key architect in designing the holistic model that will deliver this new experience under Lifesprk Senior Living. Dr. Thomas is also the founder of The Green House Project and Eden Alternative whose efforts respectively focused on partnering with senior living providers to create person-directed, relationship-rich living environments and shifting the care paradigm towards a more collaborative partnership.

“All the arrows are pointing to home and community as the locus for innovation. If you don’t pay attention to this you will end up a low occupancy and lower outcome environment,” said Thomas. “The high level of health and medical services needed during COVID will not disappear, but it won’t, nor should it, go back to the way it was. It needs to be interwoven into the fabric of their wellbeing.” Dr. Thomas adds, “Five to ten years ago it wouldn’t been relevant having a doctor and nurse leading the way but it’s incredibly important in today’s world. Combine that with the senior living knowledge of Tealwood leaders and you get a powerful shift to the age-old story.”

Integration plans for the 35 Tealwood properties to Lifesprk Senior Living are underway which spans the Upper Mid-West.  Lifesprk Senior Living is already working on plans for new senior living contracts and properties.

“The alignment of our cultures is very exciting,” said Groff. “At the end of the day, we are people taking care of people. As it always has, that journey matters a great deal.”

NVIDIA Transforms Mainstream Laptops into Gaming Powerhouses with GeForce RTX 30 Series


SANTA CLARA, Calif., May 11, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — NVIDIA today announced a new wave of GeForce RTX™ laptops from the world’s top manufacturers, delivering real-time ray tracing and AI-based DLSS to tens of millions more gamers and creators, starting at just $799.

The platforms, many based on the new GeForce RTX 3050 Ti and 3050 Laptop GPUs, bring NVIDIA’s Ampere architecture with dedicated RT and Tensor Cores to the most mainstream audience yet, and expand the number of RTX 30 Series laptops to more than 140.

Providing exceptional performance in thin, sleek designs, the new RTX laptops are twice as fast as previous-generation systems, delivering smooth, 60 frames per second gameplay at 1080p in popular titles such as Minecraft RTX and Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War.

“The latest wave of laptops provides the perfect opportunity to upgrade, particularly for gamers and creators with older laptops who want to experience the magic of RTX,” said Mark Aevermann, director of product management for laptops at NVIDIA. “There are now five times more RTX 30 Series gaming laptops that are thinner than 18mm compared with previous-generation RTX systems, delivering groundbreaking performance with very sleek and portable designs.”

NVIDIA DLSS – The Laptop Game Changer
Laptop owners, who typically upgrade after about four years of use, can see enormous performance gains with the newest GeForce RTX 3050-class Laptop GPUs. With NVIDIA DLSS, GeForce RTX 3050 Ti laptops are also up to 2x faster than previous-generation systems.

Only GeForce RTX GPUs feature specialized Tensor Cores that power DLSS, which is now available in more than 40 AAA titles and indie game hits, with recent additions such as Outriders, Call of Duty: Warzone, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, NARAKA: BLADEPOINT and Mortal Shell.

Additionally, creators can experience DLSS acceleration in applications such as D5 Render, SheenCity Mars and NVIDIA Omniverse™, which enable artists to visualize their designs in real time instead of waiting for ray-traced scenes to finish rendering.

“Consumers are spending more time than ever on laptops — PC gamers, creators and students are all driving demand for massive improvements in graphics horsepower and AI-accelerated applications,” said Bob O’Donnell, president and chief analyst at TECHnalysis Research. “Laptop manufacturers are responding to this market momentum by designing thinner, higher-performing models to meet the various needs of consumers — it’s no wonder NVIDIA GPUs are powering so many new designs.”

NVIDIA Reflex Brings Low-Latency Esports to Laptops
For those who enjoy competitive games, new GeForce RTX 3050 Ti laptops can deliver 144+ FPS and sub-25ms system latency in titles such as Overwatch, Rainbow Six Siege and Valorant, thanks to the NVIDIA Reflex Low Latency mode. Seven out of the top 10 competitive shooter games have NVIDIA Reflex support, which allows gamers to achieve lower system latency so they can play their absolute best. NVIDIA Reflex is also supported across the entire RTX 30 Series lineup.

New AI Effects for Video Conferencing and Livestreaming in NVIDIA Broadcast
All RTX 30 Series laptops include support for NVIDIA Broadcast, an app that transforms laptops into a home studio. This has now been improved with new AI effects — room echo removal and video noise removal — and updated the audio noise removal to eliminate sounds from cats, dogs and insects. These effects, together with the previously released virtual background and auto frame, can now be stacked to provide more control and quality over audio and video.

New NVIDIA Studio Laptops
RTX-based Studio laptops are designed for creators to meet their demands for performance and reliability. Newly unveiled NVIDIA Studio laptops equipped with RTX 30 Series GPUs now render creative and professional apps up to 2x faster than the previous generation. Video editors can work with 8K RAW footage, use AI to simplify workflows and reduce encode times by up to 75 percent. Additionally, artists can take advantage of up to 16GB of graphics memory to work with huge assets or multiple apps simultaneously for increased productivity and efficiency.

New GeForce RTX 30 Series laptops, including GeForce RTX 3080, 3070 and 3060, are available starting today from the world’s top manufacturers, including Acer, Alienware, ASUS, Dell, Gigabyte, HP, Lenovo, MSI and Razer. RTX 3050 Ti and 3050-based laptops will be available this summer.

GeForce RTX 30 Series laptops will also be available from local OEMs and system builders, including Aftershock, CyberPower PC, Digital Storm, Eluktronics, Falcon NW, Hasee, Maingear, Mechrevo, Mouse, Origin PC, PC Specialist, Scan, Schenker, Terrans Force, Thunderobot and XOTIC PC. Pricing, configurations and availability will vary among regions and partners.

Press assets, including product photographs, specifications, chip and die shots and other materials, are available on the NVIDIA press site at www.nvidia-press.com.

NVIDIA’s (NASDAQ: NVDA) invention of the GPU in 1999 sparked the growth of the PC gaming market and has redefined modern computer graphics, high performance computing and artificial intelligence. The company’s pioneering work in accelerated computing and AI is reshaping trillion-dollar industries, such as transportation, healthcare and manufacturing, and fueling the growth of many others.
