Share

Amimon (http://www.amimon.com/), the creators of wireless HD Joint-Source-Channel-Coding (JSCC) technology, and The Agency for Virtual Reality (A4VR) (www.a4vr.com), the international leading agency and pioneer in VR, are partnering to create the journey 4.0 for Vodafone with “VR Dome” at CEBIT 2018 that will take visitors on a thrilling 7 minute time travel throughout history.

The “VR Dome” is a new dimension of Hyper-Reality-Experience, combining the most innovative VR-technologies, interactive storytelling and a mixture of fiction and reality creating new worlds. In small groups and virtual spacesuits, this multi-immersive journey takes you from the beginnings of industrial history to the present, and all the way to the moon in a space-shuttle. This virtually guided experience brings visitors performing actors, personalized faces and mulitsensoric impressions in combination with the newest generation of wireless connectivity. From the very first moment they step into the dome, each visitor can engage with all five senses, and interact with one another and with personalized avatars to experience magical moments.

The “VR Dome” utilizes Amimon’s patented wireless video system for transmitting UHD video with zero latency to provide a fully immersive experience in the virtual space. Amimon’s system supports multi-user scenarios, such as those used in large location-based VR. Amimon’s 3rd generation chipset supports VR resolution of 2K at 90 frames per second as required by the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets, or up to 120 frames per seconds of FHD resolution used in Sony PSVR.

“Curiosity has always been deeply rooted in humans. The fusion of innovative technologies, real sensual experiences and emotional storytelling allows us to transition into new exciting worlds within seconds, visit peculiar destinations – bringing stories alive,” says Michael Albrecht and Jan Thiel, founders of A4VR. “Future visions become a reality, because only those who experience and feel it can envision it! We are making the impossible possible! The “VR Dome” combines this perfectly and shows how the wireless connectivity shapes new technical principles for real life experiences. With this campaign, A4VR is building on previous multi-immersive VR-projects like the autonomous, Vodafone Giga Car at CEBIT 2017.”

“To create a truly immersive virtual experience, it’s essential to mimic real life visual and sound effects without any lagging,” says Ram Ofir, CEO of Amimon. “Amimon’s zero latency wireless technology is able to provide a true untethered experience, while significantly reducing simulation sickness associated with low frame rate or image delay. With this unique collaboration, we’re able to bring our technology to VR Dome for audiences all over the world, to enjoy a breathtaking journey through time.”

The “VR Dome” will be exhibited at CEBIT 2018 at Vodafone’s booth in front of the pavilion #P33.
