OPPO Global Research Institute (Shenzhen) has successfully demonstrated the World’s First 5G Video Call Demo Using 3D Structured Light Technology. The demonstration reproduced a 3D portrait image on a remote receiver using portrait information collected structured-light 3D camera of an OPPO smartphone and 5G NR terminal prototypes from Qualcomm Technologies. This successful demo of new innovative technology marks a milestone in applying 5G technology standards to real practices in the industry and facilitates the exploration of a new application in the 5G era. The OPPO’s demonstration, 5G Video Call with 3D Structured Light Technology, utilized a customized OPPO R11s with an integrated structured light camera. The demo collected the color and 3D depth information of the target object by using RGB and the structured light camera of the phone. This information, transmitted under a 5G environment, finally displayed the target object in a remote display screen.
Bai Jian, the Director of the Hardware Research Center of OPPO Research Institute, said, ‘The success of the 5G video call utilizing 3D structure light technology demonstrates our innovation direction powered by the understanding of users’ need and cutting-edge technology. OPPO will commercialize the application of 3D structured light technology in smartphones and bring the groundbreaking technology to our customers in approximately 6 months. ’
Chen Yan, the Director of Software Research Group of OPPO Research Institute, said that the Mobile internet is blurring the boundary between the physical world and digital world, while 3D content will be a factor to further improve the immersive user experience. With imaging technology and a unique insight into the needs of our users, OPPO commits to provide innovative application scenarios in the future. By utilizing 3D structured light technology, users will be provided unprecedented mobile experience and possibilities such as Secure Payment, 3D Reconstruction, AR and Gaming, etc.
