OPPO Global Research Institute (Shenzhen) announces the company successfully demonstrated the World’s First 5G Video Call Demo using 3D Structured Light Technology.
The demonstration reproduced a 3D portrait image on a remote receiver using portrait information collected structured-light 3D camera of their phone and 5G NR terminal prototypes from Qualcomm Technologies.
The demonstration, 5G Video Call with 3D Structured Light Technology, utilized a customized OPPO R11s with an integrated structured light camera.
The demo collected the color and 3D depth information of the target object by using RGB and the structured light camera of the phone. This information, transmitted under a 5G environment, finally displayed the target object in a remote display screen.
Bai Jian, the Director of the Hardware Research Center of OPPO Research Institute, said, “OPPO will commercialize the application of 3D structured light technology in smartphones and bring the groundbreaking technology to our customers in approximately 6 months.”
“In January 2018, we announced the 5G pilot program with Qualcomm Technologies, and are dedicated to becoming the first smartphone manufacturers to launch 5G handsets in 2019,” said Tang Hai, Director of the Standardization Research Group of OPPO Research Institute.
Featuring the high speed (eMBB), large capacity (mMTC), and low-latency (URLLC), the 5G technology is considered as a new start of mobile telecommunication industry. As early as the standardization and the maturity of the eMBB, the company is to integrate the 5G network with other new imaging and sensor technologies, and to realize the core user scenarios with Ubiquitous Reality, Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality and Joint Reality.
Chen Yan, the Director of Software Research Group of OPPO Research Institute, said that the Mobile internet is blurring the boundary between the physical world and digital world, while 3D content will be a factor to further improve the immersive user experience.
By utilizing 3D structured light technology, users will be provided unprecedented mobile experience and possibilities such as Secure Payment, 3D Reconstruction, AR, and Gaming, etc.
