FIRST RE­GIONAL VR CLOUD PLAT­FORM IN THE WORKS

HUAWEI, TPCAST COL­LAB­O­RA­TION WILL BE EN­ABLED BY THE EMERG­ING 5G BROAD­BAND ECOSYS­TEM

Digital Studio - - NEWS UPDATE -

Huawei and TPCAST, who in­tro­duced the world’s first com­mer­cial wire­less vir­tual re­al­ity (VR) so­lu­tion, will co­op­er­ate on ex­plor­ing a cloud-based VR pro­ject in the Mid­dle East. The two com­pa­nies signed a MoU dur­ing Huawei In­no­va­tion day on 15 Oc­to­ber 2018, at GITEX, in Dubai.

The col­lab­o­ra­tion will be en­abled by the emerg­ing 5G broad­band dig­i­tal ecosys­tem. Huawei will pro­vide users with mul­ti­ple gi­ga­bit speeds, thus en­hanc­ing gam­ing and video stream­ing ca­pa­bil­i­ties.

Huawei will pro­vide its Cloud video and VR plat­form which al­lows video con­tent to be ac­cessed, man­aged, and op­er­ated ef­fi­ciently, along with high spec­i­fi­ca­tion Set-Top-Boxes (STBs). TPCAST will pro­vide ul­tra-low la­tency codec, a VR back-end con­trol pro­to­col, as well as multi-user wire­less VR cen­tral man­age­ment. Both par­ties will share their global and lo­cal ecosys­tem part­ner re­sources to open mar­ket ex­plo­ration in Mid­dle East.

“Within the 5G plat­form, the Huawei-TPCAST col­lab­o­ra­tion will also broaden the op­por­tu­ni­ties within both VR and aug­mented re­al­ity (AR),” said Reiner Pes, Gen­eral Man­ager - EMEA, TPCAST. “Our codec tech­nolo­gies will be a key fac­tor for both ac­cel­er­at­ing the de­vel­op­ment and launch­ing these op­por­tu­ni­ties to the mar­ket.”

Mr. Wang Su, Vice Pres­i­dent of Mar­ket­ing Huawei Mid­dle East added, “This col­lab­o­ra­tion with TPCAST will help us to sup­port the in­tro­duc­tion of 5G-based cloud VR use case to the mar­ket. Huawei’s E2E 5G low la­tency so­lu­tion and TPCAST’s codec tech­nol­ogy will to­gether of­fer an en­hanced ex­pe­ri­ence of VR ser­vices.”
