Qroom-plus / holographic co-working station project takes off in Aosta

Qroom-plus is the name of the new project from Quintetto that has been selected for financing in the frame of the Call for R&D clusters of the Economic Development, Training and Labour Department of the Aosta Valley Region. The project has been presented officially in Aosta on Wednesday 13th of April during the event “Territorial development policies for a digital, sustainable and green Aosta Valley” in collaboration with the Chambre Valdôtaine des entreprises et des activités libérales – Desk SPIN2 and Confindustria Valle d’Aosta.
The project involves the design and creation of one pre-production prototype of a holographic co-working module, enabling several users connected simultaneously to the system, to engage in active and concrete cooperation activities through their holographic representation and reciprocal view/hearing/speaking. The prototype is meant to constitute the foundation unit of a fully scalable modular system.

This moves telepresence to a new degree of sophistication allowing it to serve real world situations with practical and user-friendly systems being able to overcome limits of space, distance and functionality.

The pre-production prototype is planned to be delivered in April 2023, one year from now.

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.

Quintetto joins the ranks of the most innovative SME’s of Italy.

From the EU Seal of Excellence for Innovation to the forefront of the most innovative Italian SME’s.

Quintetto srl has become part of the Special Register for Innovative SME’s of Italy, a public initiative by the Ministry of Economic Development of Italy to favour the growth of technological innovation in all productive sectors and boost the productivity and competitiveness of Italy’s manufacturing industry.

Quintetto, awarded in 2016 and 2017 the European Union Seal of Excellence for Innovation, qualified to the Register by exceeding all criteria established by the Ministry: 1. high expenditure in R&D and innovation; 2. highly qualified personnel; 3. Ownership of registered patents.

The policy on innovative SMEs addresses only small and medium-sized enterprises qualified by a strong innovation component. There are no sectoral constraints nor age limits as the rationale is to foster innovation in any sector, including traditional ones, and regardless of companies’ stage of maturity.

The initiative allows “Innovative SME’s” to access an array of benefits aimed at facilitating their growth and international expansions such as fiscal incentives, equity crowfunding, internationalisation services easier access to grants and financing and so on: a set of pretty effective benefits allowing Quintetto to intensify its development & expansion strategy.
