A 3D hologram of world famous success coach Tony Robbins, generated through ARHT Media's (CVE:ART) (OTCPK:ARHTF) HumaGram (NYSE:TM) technology, was the star of the first holographic telecast to traverse over three quarters of the globe.
Robbins was the first celebrity speaker to be Holo-ported, interacting live from Miami with an audience at his Business Mastery class in Melbourne, Australia in real time.
At the 5-day Business Mastery seminar, held in Melbourne from June 20-24, Tony Robbins in augmented reality and his panel of specialists in the fields of entrepreneurship, business start-ups and executive coaching taught participants how to grow their businesses between 30-100% in under a year.
The event, which made history as the longest running "Live 2-Way" holographic performance ever was made possible by ARHT's in collaboration with Success Resources Global (NYSE:SRG).
Together, SRG and ARHT have developed a global license and distribution partnership, implementing ARHT's holographic display technology in a variety of applications. The product delivers one or more in real-time as HumaGrams to display stages.
"The event was phenomenal! Tony Robbins was a completely lifelike, fully-formed 3D HumaGram and the audience loved it. Through an effort like this one, we have shown that time and geography are now no longer considerations. If you're one of the best in the world, we can now package and deliver you to the rest of the world, in real-time, as a human hologram," said ARHT's CEO, Paul Duffy.
ARHT says that holo-porting, a term it coined, is similar to simulcasting but gives participants a rich, fully interactive experience that entirely mimics any interactions possible with a real human being.
This unique technology allows celebrity and in-demand speakers such as Tony Robbins to participate in multiple telecasts at the same time. So, Tony Robbins could be delivering his coaching from his home, while he is simultaneously 'beamed' to multiple locations, and even telecast speaking different languages.
"I think we've now seen that HumaGrams have leapt from an exciting idea to an impressive reality. The incredible level of engagement and energy shared between Tony and our audience prove that geography is now no longer a barrier. For Success Resources it means the door is open to a whole new world of possibilities. The commitment to bringing you the world's best can now escalate to meet the global growth in demand. The potential will be there to experience anyone, anywhere, anytime," said Success Resources Global's CEO, Michael Burnett.
ARHT offers customized applications and distribution of ARHT's Augment Reality Holographic Technology Platform in for the growing educational seminar market while Success Resources Global (SRG) is one of the world's leaders in the educational seminar and event management market with such clients as President Bill Clinton, Sir Richard Branson and Tony Robbins in its A-list roster.
ARHT has achieved a number of milestones lately, having amassed a board of advisors which boasts a myriad of household names including Paul Anka, Larry King, Jason Bateman, Richard Branson, Michael Buble, Carlos Slim, Kevin O'Leary and entertainment manager Irving Azoff. In December, ARHT unveiled its first big retail partnership with Harry Rosen, one of Canada's largest menswear retailers, to create its first-ever human hologram named Vincent.
