Google begin testing Holographic video chats at real offices – known as project Starline, this is a light field display 3D communication platform and right now it is being installed in many corporate locations for the very first time.
Google Begin Testing Holographic Video Chats At Real Offices
Google’s experimental technology that is making use of holographic light field displays to video chat with distant workers known as Project Starline is now making its way out of Google’s offices and into some real corporate locations for testing and it is starting this very year.
The project Starline tech by Google was announced last year at the company’s I/O developer conference. The project makes use of a huge light field display and an array of cameras to record and display 3D video between two people at two separate remote locations
Offices Where Starline Prototypes Are Being Installed
Starline prototypes at the moment are being installed at Salesforce, T-Mobile, WeWork, and Hackensack Meridian Health offices as part of the company’s early access program with each of the companies that are part of the program getting two units to test for a start.
100 businesses according to Google have already demoed Project Starline as the company’s own offices. The off-Google installations of the units ate the next step of the company to test just how the holographic video chats could be used in creating more realistic virtual meetings without having to need to make use of VR or AR headsets.
This Piece of Tech Is Being Installed For Corporate Use Only
This very piece of tech will not be anything that regular customers will be seeing as it is being installed for corporate use only and is only available in a few test sites for the time being. However, this is one technology that Google believes could help remote communications between businesses and customers and thus creating a more immediate sense of presence than the standard video chats we are accustomed to.
