[Nanchang, China, October 20, 2018] Huawei’s Cloud VR business solution won the Gold Award for Innovation at the 2018 World Conference on VR Industry for the innovation in technologies and business models.
The theme of this year’s conference was “VR to make the world a better place”. The awards given at the event are to encourage individuals and organizations that have promoted the development of new products or technologies in VR, AR, and MR.
Huawei is the first company to propose a Cloud VR business solution that addresses every aspect of the VR service industry, from the cloud, to pipes, to end user devices. Operators have advantages in cloud-network integration, and can work with the terminal, platform, and content partners in the VR ecosystem to address pain points and boost the development of the industry. The solution is a result of innovation not only in system architecture, but also in services and business models. The solution has been commercially deployed by China Mobile Fujian. This is the world’s first operator Cloud VR project, which brings VR to home users and is expected to be deployed by many more operators in the future.
