SK Telecom to provide augmented reality, virtual reality content in Hong Kong
SK Telecom Co. has partnered with Hong Kong's PCCW Group to provide its augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) content in Hong Kong.
The two firms have agreed on joint investment and production of 5G-based content.
SK Telecom Co. currently offers a wide range of AR and VR content via its Jump service, including concerts and virtual meetups, which has attracted 3 million cumulative users and more than 600,000 monthly users.
SK Telecom is in talks with Deutsche Telekom for the European market and with T-Mobile for the U.S. market for providing AR and VR content.
It is also eyeing the Southeast Asian market.
The company is hoping to achieve a total of 10 million Jump service users by the end of next year.
In April, SK Telecom also partnered with Microsoft Corp. to establish a film studio that uses volumetric video capture technology in producing 3D hologram content.
