Zu partners with Telus to launch experimental 5G laboratory

Thursday 12 September 2019 | 10:19 CET | News

Montreal-based organisation Zu entered into a long-term partnership with Telus to launch an experimental 5G laboratory. Telus’ contribution will empower creators to explore new technologies, from augmented reality and 3D holograms to mobile gaming, interactive storytelling, live volumetric performance, and 4K live streaming.

The joint initiative will create the first-ever space for technological exploration in Canada entirely dedicated to the creative and entertainment industry. In addition to considerable funding and access to its network, Telus will provide the creative community with access to engineers and mentors who will help make possible the incubation, validation and acceleration of start-ups. A series of lectures on emerging technologies will also be part of Zú's programming to guide participants to the creative opportunities of tomorrow.

The 5G Telus Lab is currently being built at Zu. The creative hub will welcome its first participants by the end of 2019. They will have the opportunity to test and optimise their creative projects in a real life setting which could expedite the ways in which quickly they go to market. Montreal key business and political stakeholders are already eagerly anticipating the beginnings of this partnership.

Call for projects for the experimental centre

The 5G Telus Lab is searching for innovative products and ideas that truly demonstrate the power of the new network. It wants to explore its impact on the next generation of media and entertainment (interactive, immersive experiences, games, mixed realities, engagement of fans) and all other applications possible.

Projects are open for evaluation today. The 5G Telus Lab is looking for the best products, services and applications that will bring the creative power of 5G to life.
