Q-room Creates “true presence” for service points within service-critical businesses.
Q-room is the world’s first immersive holographic telepresence solution; enabling virtual attendance for sales, service, projects and educational purposes. Removing the need for expensive local offices and travel, while preserving the near physical presence of the human interaction and assistance. The state-of-the-art room is designed with advanced optical perception. It combines hardware (cameras, monitors, computers and speakers) with a specific scenography (lighting, sound, reflections and interior design) to create lifelike hologram representations of people and space.
