Distributed Virtual Reality, according to NOKIA, conceives a new paradigm for human communications over 5G networks (the fifth generation of Telecommunications).

The VR Observatory, which will take place on 18 and 19 July at the Polo de Contenidos Digitales in Malaga, is the main multidisciplinary event held in Spain on these new technologies (VR, AR, MR, 360, eSports, Video Games, Serious Games, etc.).

NASA, SAMSUNG, NOKIA and universities such as the University of Cambridge, among others, will be present with their projects and news in the second edition of this international event that allows a panoramic and critical view, different from other forums that only address these fields vertically.

Specifically, NOKIA’s Bell Labs will also showcase the results of some innovative projects in the VR Observatory Demo Area, where attendees will be able to see immersive video solutions, 360 video solutions using multi-access techniques, Edge Computing and a Distributed Reality experience.

In addition, researcher María Esther Guervós will present the results of a subjective quality study of immersive education experience with real university students.

This study has been carried out within the framework of a NOKIA research project of the Alfonso X El Sabio Foundation and Banco de Santander.

The OVR is the most important multidisciplinary event held in Spain on these new technologies and is sponsored by multinationals such as Samsung and Nokia, among others.
