DVEholographics HDR Studio Stage™ offers corporations a new way to create impressive business conferences and live events. It also ensures that speakers, executives, employees, partners, and clients dramatically reduce exposure to the coronavirus (COVID-19). The HDR Studio Stage™ is based on an expansive patent portfolio of holographic telepresence combined with converting hotel ballrooms/convention centers into temporary and/or permanent broadcast streaming studios. Corporations now have an alternative to virtualize their events and not resort to unimpressive webcasts. Executives and speakers appear live from their homes or offices virtually on a real event stage which is then streamed to hundreds and even tens of thousands of online attendees. A first generation of live holographic telepresence was proven when DVE teleported live Stephen Hawking from his home in Cambridge England to the Sydney Opera House (see link). As impressive as that was, the technology has now evolved into stunning ultra-realism.
