TORONTO, CANADA, Oct 8, 2019 – ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ART), the global leader in the development, production and distribution of high-quality hologram content through its patented Holographic Telepresence technology, recently participated in the Association of Science and Technology Centers (ASTC) annual conference, which was hosted by the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto from September 21–24, 2019.
ARHT captured architect Raymond Moriyama at its Capture Studio in Toronto to turn him into a hologram and greet guests of the science centre community from around the world. Moriyama is a renowned Canadian architect and a recipient of the Order of Canada and Order of Ontario, who designed the Ontario Science Centre’s building.
“The holographic greeter was a great way for the Science Centre to showcase how innovations in technology can improve the experience for visitors,” said Catherine Paisley, Vice President, Science Education and Experience at the Ontario Science Centre. “This technology gives the public access to great experts like Raymond Moriyama, the person responsible for designing our wonderful centre, and presents those experts in a much more immersive way.”
The 2019 ASTC Annual Conference is the premier professional development gathering for the science and technology museum industry. ASTC represents over 600 members in nearly 50 countries. This includes science centers and museums, as well as a range of other informal science education organizations, companies and consultants.
“We are seeing growing interest from the museum and science centre community to use our technology to enhance their storytelling and educational programs,” stated ARHT Media CEO, Larry O’Reilly.
