TORONTO, April 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ARHT Media Inc. (“ARHT” or the “Company”) (TSXV:ART), the global leader in the development, production and distribution of high quality hologram content, and the New Jersey Hall of Fame (“NJHOF”) are proud to announce the world’s first permanent public hologram installation at Newark International Airport. Over the next five years, the public will be able to select from a collection of famous New Jerseyans - all inductees to the New Jersey Hall of Fame - and hear their thoughts on a variety of topics while appearing as life-like holograms.
“The installation of this public hologram display at Newark International Airport serves as a fitting continuation of the New Jersey Hall of Fame’s mission: inspiring state residents to become the next generation of New Jersey leaders,” says Jon F. Hanson, chairman of the NJHOF.
“The hologram interviews with our inductees will hopefully inspire people of all ages to chase their own dreams in life, no matter the circumstances or adversity they will need to overcome,” says Steve Edwards, president of the NJHOF.
The New Jersey Hall of Fame will update its impressive roster of inductees on a regular basis, making a visit to the ARHT Media Holographic Cube a must-see stop while at Newark International Network and developing this New Jersey Hall of Fame attraction into an evolving, engaging showcase of New Jersey’s deep pool of talent.
“Hearing Steven Van Zandt’s signature chuckle, while seeing him in life-sized 4K 3D holographic video, creates a unique sense of presence,” adds ARHT CEO Larry O’Reilly. “It feels as though he is actually there with you. The possibilities of this display technology are endless and we have tremendous interest in taking the ARHT Media Holographic Cube to many other public venues.”
