Hologram USA Brings Futuristic Technology to Washington D.C.

CEO Alki David Partners With USGRI.com to Bring State of the Art Hologram Services to the Federal Government and Political Campaigns

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwired - July 28, 2014) - Alki David, CEO of Hologram USA, the best-in-industry three-dimensional image technology, announced today that he has partnered with USGRI.com to bring holographic technology to U.S. government departments and agencies, industry associations, and the U.S. political system.

The images that Hologram USA's patented technology produces are the most life-like, singularly impactful versions of what are popularly known as holograms. Projected images can interact with live performers, demonstrate variations on inanimate objects, and even allow a speaker to appear live from a remote location.

USGRI.com will introduce David's company and his technology to government officials and program offices, political candidates, consultants, campaigns and organizations, and industry association executives. In short, it will appeal to all leaders in Washington looking to take the next step in communicating in the most vital way to the broadest audience.

The Beverly Hills based company has partnered with the inventor of the technology, Uwe Maass, and the U.K. based company Musion, owned by Giovanni Palma, and is the only legal licensee of the patent used to create recent high profile hologram projections using the images of Michael Jackson and Tupac Shakur. David has hired the most skilled VFX artists and technicians to ensure all productions are state of the art. USGRI.com is a government relations firm for companies that want to establish a more professional and interactive relationship with the U.S. federal government.

Hologram USA's services represent the latest frontier in political campaigns -- and the new Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, is Exhibit A. Throughout his campaign this Spring, Hologram USA's technology was used to produce dozens of simultaneous appearances by Modi across the country. His speeches reached crowds of 10,000 - 30,000 who participated in virtual town halls. Many news sources from, the Times of India to the Wall Street Journal, cited this technological advantage for helping his win.

Hologram USA's government applications will be useful across the whole spectrum of the U.S. federal government; from the Department of Defense to the Department of Education and beyond. For the Pentagon, real-time interactive images of soldiers or terrain could give the U.S. a strategic benefit, and military hardware will be presented and demonstrated in 3D, making complicated technologies easy to grasp. In the other executive departments and agencies, where a conference call, internet chat, or grainy video used to have to suffice to communicate or strategize, now an interactive three-dimensional real time image can make interactions more productive and substantive.

In the run-up to the 2016 presidential campaigns, Hologram USA technology will be employed by presidential candidates, surrogates for candidates, political parties, political conventions, and third party political and grassroots organizations. It also opens up an entirely new way for industry associations to conduct their annual meetings, conventions, conferences, even smaller more focused industry gatherings.

"When Hologram USA launched, we always expected a dovetail with the U.S. federal government. We set our sights first on entertainment and fashion because those were the industries we knew best, but it wasn't difficult to imagine the applications associated with aspects of our government; The White House, defense, homeland security, education, to name a few. And with the 2016 political season slowly starting, which political candidate does not want to reach the largest audience to convey a strong political message?" Alki David, Hologram USA CEO said. "USGRI.com launches our first initiative into official Washington -- government, business, and politics."

"It's the Star Trek 'holodeck' finally coming to Washington," remarked Jeff Taylor, managing partner, USGRI.com. "We've become accustomed to relying on 90 second two-dimensional video or 30 second political ad telling us what we need to know, what we need to buy, and who we need to vote for. In short, how we need to conduct our lives. Now there is a three-dimensional image, state of the art technology available to allow us to learn more from government, industry, and political leaders."

Alki David is an entrepreneur and shipping magnate of Greek origins, with offices in Beverly Hills and London. In addition to Hologram USA, his companies include the world's largest Internet television provider FilmOn Networks, with 40 million users a month, the innovative social television site BattleCam.com, and several broadcast television stations in the U.S. and the U.K.. FilmOn is the most watched IPTV company today, having just purchased the largest privately held film library, entered into a co-production deal with Relativity Media, and in a historic move, begun broadcasting the U.S. government's Voice of America television programming over the internet world wide.

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.
WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
