Wednesday 7 September 2016 | 16:04 CET | News

Summit Tech launched 4K virtual reality (VR) calling at CTIA Super Mobility in Las Vegas. The platform allows wireless carriers to launch immersive VR calling services in high-resolution 4K. This means that subscribers can make a VR call which connects them into ultra-high resolution 360 degrees video streams of the location they’re calling. VR Calling works with off-the-shelf VoLTE/ViLTE phones or RCS devices supporting video calling, including WebRTC enabled browsers, with no app required.

Summit’s VR Calling platform also allows subscribers to make and receive calls and send text messages to and from any phone from within a VR environment. As well as allowing individuals to share real-time 360 degrees video experiences with friends and family, VR Calling can also enable new, high-value experiences such as immersive live-streaming entertainment; immersive meetings and immersive edutainment.

360 degrees video streams can be delivered via fixed-line broadband or full battery-powered LTE mobile units. VR Calling supports 360 degrees video cameras from HD GoPro 360 degrees camera rigs, Nokia Ozo, Eyesir and Ricoh Theta S cameras.  Summit’s VR Calling platform also supports the latest Oculus Rift and Samsung Gear VR headsets as well as HTC Vive. Summit Tech will present its platform at its CTIA Super Mobility in Las Vegas. Summit Tech will also demonstrate the IMS-enabled connected car and an operator-managed home automation, connected living and security system.
