The Hologram Pitch: Celebrities Tour China Without Leaving Home

  • Video from 4k camera is compressed, sent over internet
  • Pitch to celebrities focuses on time savings, past success

Taking global celebrities on tour across Asia can be grueling and expensive. One online games developer says it’s found the solution: holograms.

Canada’s ARHT Media Inc. has used its technology to beam live holograms of stars including motivational speaker Tony Robbins to packed rooms. Now it wants to take its shows to China and India. It’s in talks with Creative Artists Agency -- one of two leading U.S. talent managers -- for access to its roster of high-powered clients.
