i2CAT introduces 3D holoconferencing

HoloMIT allows you to be fully immersed in a VR/AR/XR world, projecting your volumetric video representation, captured in real time directly into the scenario.

At the same time, the End to End holoportation pipeline compresses and transmits, in real time, your volumetric representation, allowing telepresence and the feeling of being teleported to the other side of the world.

Visitors to i2CAT’s booth at the Digital Catalonia Pavillion (Hall 3 Stand 3E70) will be able to get to know HoloMIT and experience a real holoconference demonstration with a person located in our Crea & Play Laboratory in Vilanova i la Geltrú, and a real-time overview of the architecture and performance indicators.

El Mobile World Congress 2021 termina con pocas novedades pero con propuestas AR/VR

01/07/2021 La celebración en Barcelona del Mobile World Congress 2021 llega a su fin en una edición protagonizada más por las ausencias de grandes compañías que por anuncios de nuevos dispositivos o tecnologías. EEl centro de investigación i2CAT ha presentado en el MWC 2021 estos días una tecnología que permitirá realizar conferencias usando hologramas y visores AR/VR. Este sistema se llama Holomit y usa vídeos volumétricos para proyectar en tiempo real a diferentes personas, con el objetivo de hacer evolucionar las videollamadas a holoconferencias.

About Holomit

In HoloMIT, i2CAT uses Point Clouds—instead of meshes—as representation format, thus unleashing greater detail potential for both capturing and viewing real objects. While this format presents bigger management complexity in terms of computation and data volume, it also opens new horizons for innovation. Moreover, 3D holoconference impies additional requirements in terms of bandwidth and latency. By combining various components for capture, compression, multi-conferencing, and 3D rendering, i2CAT manages to reduce the computing, data load, bandwidth, and cost needs of an end-to-end solution.

HoloMIT is one of the very first end-to-end Holoportation platform supporting use cases as:

Holoconference meeting
Holographic Convention
Immersive social content watching in VR

We look forward to your visit to show you the technology while discussing how some of the components used by i2CAT—available for licensing—can become new applications that develop the full potential of immersive environments. The immersive technology sector is growing rapidly and provides innovative opportunities in fields such as entertainment, audiovisual production, and Industry 4.0.
