LIVE ENTERTAINMENT IN AR/VR GETS A 5G BOOST
With the next phase of AR/VR, sports fanatics could be able to watch a game from the POV of a quarterback or feel like they’re actually Messi striking a game-winning PK. Thanks to 5G, enjoying live events from home with AR/VR is about to get more real -- and faster. Like, downloading a two-hour movie in just 3.6 seconds and with 100x the speed of 4G LTE kind of fast. Poorly demonstrated by the 2018 Winter Olympics, AR/VR applications in live events had previously been a let down, hampered by visible delays and poor resolution. But with 5G coming as soon as... well, now, this network evolution has the power to bridge these latency gaps and enable headsets and AR glasses to get us to feel like we’re really at a game or a concert the way we’ve always envisioned them to.
