TORONTO, June 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT” or “the Company”) (TSXV:ART), a global leader in the development, production and distribution of high quality hologram content through its patented Augmented Reality Holographic Telepresence technology, in partnership with Centrifuge Media kicked-off the Life Sciences Trainers and Educators Network Conference (“L-TEN”) in Phoenix, AZ,  with President David Fortanbary appearing on stage as a hologram.  Audience members from around the country were welcomed by the holographic president and then surprised when Fortanbary, in person, took the stage to interact with his own hologram. Showcased on ARHT’s portable H10 Display, the holographic Fortanbary was able to appear on stage without disrupting the conferences show flow or speakers – including himself. ARHT’s ability to capture and playback photo-realistic human holograms delighted guests and elevated the keynote address.

“We are always looking for new and innovative ways to engage with attendees on stage. ARHT Media’s holographic technology was the perfect introduction to the President and Keynote, but also a unique and memorable way to kick-off L-TEN 2018 overall,” says Chris Spohr, Agency Director of Centrifuge Media.

“Our quality photo-realistic holograms paired with the H10 Display’s minimal stage footprint was perfect for an event like L-TEN’s,” added ARHT Media CEO Larry O’Reilly.  “We love when our clients have fun with the technology and the interaction between the two David’s was a hit.  Our technology’s scalability and ease-of-use has definitely made an impact on the conferences and meeting planner industry.”
