Vienna, Rome, Milan, Delhi, London, Stockholm: widespread recognition for Qroom.

Qroom, the Quintetto patent solution for services and public spaces gains new interest from industries.

On the long wave that led the globe through Covid-19, a growing awareness in businesses and industries about the importance to master from remote services and interaction is most likely one of the most relevant outcomes. And the raising interest about Qroom from a variety of organisations is just here to testify that. Since early 2021 Qroom became a hot item for Quintetto with at least one contract already on the go and a few more under discussion. Interest came from the transport industry, logistics, automotive, public authorities, academia, real estate, large utilities and science as well. Significantly improved in performance thanks to the integration of new functionalities derived from Quintetto’s communication system, Qcast, the Quintetto patent Qroom is poised to become a technology of choice for several organisations in Italy and abroad throughout 2021 and over. We will keep you informed.

Quintetto (and Qroom) to participate to the Virtual Innovation Workshop on June 9th 2021.

Quintetto invited to present Qroom at the next international workshop of Living Innovation (https://www.living-innovation.net/explore) coordinated by the Institute for Managing Sustainability at Vienna University of Economics and Business.

The workshop will be held on June 9th in the frame of the programme of events focused on the development of responsible, smart home solutions that tackle societal challenges and respond to pressing societal trends. Living Innovation initiative, funded by the European Commission’s Horizon 2020 programme is strong of 14 partners from 10 European countries, including nine leading companies in the areas of smart homes and smart health, The project creates two distinct opportunities:

  1. Giving lead users and citizens the chance to be involved in the design of the technology that will shape their future lives
  2. Giving industry the possibility to respond directly to changes and needs of users and society.

Qroom is the immersive service desk solution developed by Quintetto to respond to telepresence and teleinteraction needs of companies and organisations looking for a more natural and comfortable environment for people to access remote added value services: a segment of operation in which Quintetto is active since its inception and that grew substantially in interest following the Covid-19 pandemic. Amongst the attendees: Accor, ÖBB, Novartis, Deutsche Telekom, Google, Microsoft, Austrian Airlines….

Holography: our future presence?

An interview with Martin Richardson, Professor of modern holography, unveils a broad perspective for holographic telepresence in services, communications and arts as well.

André Martinuzzi, head of the Institute for Managing Sustainability of Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU Vienna) with whom Quintetto is collaborating on the front of holographic services, recently interviewed Professor Martin Richardson from De Montfort University at Leicester (UK). Professor Richardson is an expert on holography and its various fields of application being these commercial, functional or even artistic.

During the video interview (which can be found here), Professor Richardson points out a few key elements that are paramount for the understanding of the great potential that holography used for performing functions and not only for entertainment, can have in our daily life.

On efficiency of relationship and person-to-person  interaction:

“The standard two-dimensional format of flat screens is tiring for the eyes. Holographic telepresence overcomes this problem, as it offers a more curved reality, which provides incredible collaboration possibilities to its users and creates a much higher attention span.”

On customisation of individual experience:

“There is something about the pureness of a three-dimensional holographic telepresence, which takes on a different meaning for its user.”

On advancements in the technology:

“Apart from the increasing application of holograms in our daily life, there are ways emerging that use holographic optical elements, which overlap the world of holography with the real world. The actual big push in science is using holograms within Augmented Reality.”

The interview covers a very wide spectrum of aspects of holography, some unexpected and, in any case confirming that the impact of the technology on operations whatever the field of application, is exponential from the User Experience side to the actual achievement of greater efficiency and performance with respect to other technlogies.

Q-School: the first-ever specially designed solution for school continuity in Covid-19 time.

Q-School is born: the first simple and efficient true-real time tool specially designed to fight security and protection concerns and allow the widest coverage of households in time of emergency.

To respond to the absence of “remote schooling” tools created specifically to respond to these demanding times, Quintetto designed and developed in record time Q-School, the first ever true real-time bidirectional didactic communication tool (av. 350 msec. latency time). Q-School is made available free of charge to schools in Italy and abroad to deal with the critical situation of these months and allow a rapid and homogeneous diffusion of a simple and immediate tool.

Based on a PC and normal home smartphones, Q-School answers the main problems of distance learning in times of emergency:

  1. Maintaining the organization and classroom and classroom teaching by reproducing the original real environment and the teacher-class relationship
  2. Low availability of computers in families
  3. Low availability of high-speed and broadband connections (ADSL, Wi-Fi, fiber)
  4. Data subscription costs and usage thresholds
  5. Maintaining the continuity of the didactic and “social” relationship between students and teachers, also individually and extra lessons
  6. Real protection of communications and data (avoid cookies, analytics, registrations, external and third-party servers)

To easily overcome all this (and much more), Q-School needs very little:

  1. A personal computer (desktop or laptop) (private or school) for the teacher / teachers
  2. An Android or iOS smartphone for a single student
  3. Access to the mobile network through standard connection

Q-School leverages on:

  1. Familiarity of children in the use of smartphones and high availability in families
  2. Use of the mobile home network with very low bandwidth consumption
  3. Ease of use and immediacy of activation
  4. Allow teachers maximum continuity with their method, program, procedure, minimizing the effects of distance
  5. Modular/scalable organization of teaching, from existing classes to sections, from single school to educational complex, without the need for expensive IT infrastructures
  6. Ensure absolute security and protection of communications contrary to what happens with the platforms of large operators or with standard commercial social platform.

Q-School operates in two modes, Lecture and Student Reception, which allow to differentiate the communication and dialogue needs between teachers, students and families, in a discreet and simple way, also maintaining a conceptual continuity with normal school activities.

Faced with an offer that varies from the most meager “social” tools to the most complicated digital school platforms, Q-School is an agile and immediate response for schools, teachers and children, simplifying problems and operational bottlenecks typical of standard non-specific solutions; for example with regard to confidentiality and data protection which, especially if referred to Big Techs, leave many doubts and uncertainties as to the actual correctness of the procedures. Considering that often teachers and operators are not so aware of it.
