TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 12/01/16 -- ARHT Media Inc. (TSX VENTURE: ART)(OTCQB: ARHTF), in conjunction with world-renowned physician Dr. Deepak Chopra and his wellness platform Jiyo, are pleased to present a video of the successful Sages & Scientists symposium performed in September at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel. Together with their partner Net Dragon, ARHT Media was able to use their patented technology to create a one of a kind wellness show. Together, the brands introduced HumaGrams to the health and wellness space, and officially announced the partnership between Jiyo, ARHT Media, and Net Dragon.
HumaGrams are life-size photo-realistic digital representations of people, projected using ARHT's patent-pending Augmented Reality Holographic Technology, capable of eliminating time and geography by allowing a speaker to appear in front of an audience as a hologram in real-time for a two-way interaction, without having the need to physically be there.
Please visit the link https://vimeo.com/193415939 to view the technology used at the Sages & Scientists symposium and listen to first hand testimonials.
With the advent of HumaGrams in the health and wellness space, individuals can now be beamed into virtually any location around the world using the public Internet, and can interact with multiple audiences in multiple locations in real-time opening up endless boundaries for greater engagement and collaboration. The use of this technology will bring the insights of key thought leaders to the masses while fusing the online with the offline. Jiyo users will be able to access a schedule of lectures, meditations, and workshops around the world where a HumaGram of these experts will be available to interact with them.
"HumaGrams brings us one step closer to our goal of impacting 1 billion lives around the world, said Dr. Chopra. "We will be able to touch multiple communities at once with these immersive experiences and create a synergy that leads to a greater societal transformation. This is the future of wellness and technology."
"We are very proud of this groundbreaking symposium, and urge our shareholders to view the link showcasing, what resulted in a fantastic symposium, utilizing the world's great holographic technology." states Rene Bharti, Chairman and Founder of ARHT Media inc.
ARHT Media's HumaGram technology has previously been used with well-known public figures such as best-selling author Tony Robbins, Paul Anka, and television host Larry King among many others.
Dr. Simon Leung of NetDragon said, "With our investment in ARHT Media's technology and our collective collaboration with Jiyo and Dr. Chopra, we again move a great leap forward in helping build even larger communities focused on knowledge sharing, and continue to bring world-class subject matter experts to people who in the past may not have been able to easily access them."
NetDragon is a major shareholder in ARHT and together they have a joint venture in Asia that includes a multi-year exclusive license of ARHT's technology as well as a license of NetDragon's mobile-focused community, instant messaging and app store technologies.
