“Our Augmented Reality Quebec conference is intended to demonstrate the potential of these technologies and Holocap blew the whole audience's minds with the quality of the holoportation. From an organizational point of view, all we had to do was plug in a mobile phone to bring Peder Borresen on stage and start the show !” Denis Boulanger, Director of programming for Réalité Augmentée Québec
HoloCap CMO Peder Børresen held an entire 25 minute keynote presentation on the subject of “Human holograms in virtual and augmented reality” at the RAQ conference in Québec.
Here is a shortened version of the conference live video stream.

For this hologram presentation, Peder was at his home in Norway, while his hologram was presenting the keynote on stage at the conference in Canada.
Before the actual conference we tested the technology in an empty conference hall in Norway. The live audience sees the hologram through an Augmented Reality video feed, broadcasted on the conference screens.
