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.

Quintetto expands its competencies to Smart City and Sustainability in communities.

Last summer Quintetto took part to the  2nd Training Programme for Clusters, SMEs and scale-up organizations initiative, (see our post Qroom hits marks…on Aug. 1st 2021). This  allowed the company to improve its understanding of the smart cities demand of technologies and innovative solutions for the development of comprehensive systems aimed at improving the access to services from citizens. The two months programme focused on several real use cases thus casting light on differences in approach and implementation of local authorities in countries and the way in which they prioritise their goals. A clearer view and a sounder background on these strategies and visions will allow to build more accurate segmentation of proposals when it comes to planning the development of new technologies and features of existing architectural solutions, such as is the case for Quintetto.

The participation has been sanctioned by a certificate issued by the programme coordinator, the SmartCTClusters Network.

Qroom hits marks at major European Smart City event.

With a pitching session held on 13th of July Quintetto presented its Qroom to an audience of about 200 international specialists, at the closing of the 2nd Training Programme for Clusters, SMEs and scale-up organizations initiative.

The 5-days programme organized by the SmartCTClusters project (*), to which Quintetto took part as a selected member of TorinoWireless (https://www.torinowireless.it/?lang=en), involved 5 international speakers, 4 Smart Cities, 16 stakeholders or market players, and 16 SMEs specialising around the pillars of Ict, Energy, Mobility, and Public Administration: an extended scale online event with participants from 17 different countries representing relevant agents of the Smart cities ecosystem, such as City Councils, Clusters, Professional Associations, Companies & SME, non-profit-organizations, Public Administrations, Start-Ups, Technology Consulting agencies, and technological centers.

The opportunity allowed Quintetto to enhance its knowledge of smart cities demand and needs so as to establish relationships for technology integration and development of comprehensive solutions aimed at improving the access to services from citizens. In this frame, holographic telepresence for interactive services represented here by Quintetto’s Qroom proved to be a pretty hot item as it addresses in a very simple but effective way a whole new category of remote service provision in true real time and full interaction in the town and communities environment.

(*) The project (https://smartctclusters.eu/), is one of the 13 European Strategic Partnerships for Excellence selected under the last call for proposals of the European Cluster Excellence Programme. It involves five European clusters operating in the field of  and aims to develop a common strategy to support the development of Smart Cities through the exchange of best practices and the identification of innovative models of support to the clusters member companies.

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.

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.
