[Shenzhen, China, February 22, 2019] Huawei iLab and the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology (CAICT) have jointly released the ‘Cloud VR+2B Scenario White Paper’. The white paper provides insights into the development and trends of Virtual Reality (VR) technologies in vertical industries, identifies six promising 2B scenarios, and proposes an industry development initiative. The initiative calls for establishing a generalized preferential and open Cloud VR platform to accelerate VR industrial application and promote Cloud VR commercialization.
VR is driving technological revolution, industry transformation, and the revitalization of traditional industries, and the white paper describes how VR can create measurable value and shows promise in diverse vertical industry applications. The white paper has identified six major scenarios through its authors conducting in-depth interviews with enterprises and also by analyzing the characteristics of VR technologies, industry policies, and market data. These scenarios are enterprise practical training, vocational and higher education, K-12 education, government services, theme experience pavilions, and marketing – and have already been successfully commercialized in pilot cases. Using these success stories, the white paper will help industry customers understand the commercial value of VR and provide insights for further deployment.
Cloud VR, proposed in the Huawei VR OpenLab industry cooperation plan, has become the key direction of VR industry development. Collaborating with industry partners, an open platform has been established. The platform adapts to various types of terminals and aggregates extensive content. It will play a vital role in improving user experience, reducing consumption costs, protecting copyright, and promoting business scenarios. Generalized preferential Cloud VR is also the best choice for accelerating VR industry development, and operators have inherent advantages, such as cloud, networks, and government and enterprise customer bases. As such, operators are well-positioned to become early investors in Cloud VR platforms.
