5G+AR/VR has unlimited potential, and future opportunities and challenges coexist
my country’s 5G package users and 5G mobile phone shipments continue to rise, and AR (augmented reality)/VR (virtual reality) is also used in more scenarios under the empowerment of 5G. To C is considered to be a 5G market with huge potential, and it is the development trend of the technology field in the next 10 years. But for now, there is still a long way to go for 5G+AR/VR to fully boost revenue in the consumer sector, which requires the entire industry to face the predicament and ride the wind and waves to explore “killer applications”.
5G+AR/VR empowers thousands of industries
As one of the most anticipated 5G application scenarios in the industry, AR/VR will usher in an “explosive period” in the future with the pace of 5G commercial use and the maturity of its ecosystem. According to CCID think tank forecast, by 2023, the scale of China’s virtual reality market will reach 430 billion yuan. It is not difficult to foresee that with the continuous empowerment of 5G, VR/AR applications will be integrated with many fields and industries, which can redefine product attributes and bring better application experience.
In terms of “cloud tourism”, due to factors such as epidemic prevention and control, “cloud tourism” with the blessing of AR/VR technology has emerged. Whether it is the popular 5G+VR “Cloud Cherry Blossoms” during the epidemic in Wuhan, or the popularity of the “Panorama China” website, it highlights the further maturity of VR/AR technology, giving people a novel experience of “travelling” all over the country at home .
In the field of education, people have high hopes for VR/AR immersive teaching. Relying on the full integration of 5G and VR technologies, the space and time boundaries of teaching are broken, creating a “boundaryless classroom” of online and offline, virtual and reality, so that students can better experience the integration of theory and practice. For example, Sichuan Telecom and local schools jointly launched the “5G + Smart Campus”, which is a specific case of promoting the development of vocational education.
5G+AR can also create opportunities for the transformation and upgrading of the manufacturing industry. In particular, AR inspection uses the low latency of 5G to Display device data in real time through AR, helping operation and maintenance personnel understand the status of the device.
It has to be said that 5G+AR/VR has unlimited potential and will surely shine in many fields in the future.
5G+AR/VR Dilemma Remains
Although currently with the help of 5G technology, VR/AR technology has basically eliminated the problems of high network delay and inability to guarantee smoothness. However, from the perspective of development, the development of the VR/AR market still faces many long-standing problems, and challenges still need to be faced in order to seek rapid development of the VR/AR industry.
On the one hand, VR/AR products from mainstream manufacturers are more expensive. Although VR/AR devices share many similar components with mobile phones, such as displays, processors, etc. However, due to the existence of unique components such as 3D lenses and positioning systems, the price of VR/AR equipment remains high, which makes it difficult for VR/AR equipment to popularize the public and lay out the market at a low price, and increase the experience of VR/AR for ordinary users. threshold.
On the other hand, VR/AR content production technology is difficult, there are certain thresholds, and professional and technical talents are scarce. To a certain extent, this leads to the lack of high-quality content in VR/AR, the picture quality is not fine and clear enough, and the terminal experience is poor. Therefore, in terms of product application, there are only a small number of molded products, and there is no “killer application”.
5G+VR/AR can be expected in the future
Under the blessing of 5G, if VR/AR is to become a “killer application”, in addition to implementing a talent training strategy and improving the quality of industrial talents, it is also necessary to work hard on user experience.
First of all, it is necessary to build strong cloud capabilities to reduce the requirements for user terminal equipment for VR/AR experience. Using the large connection, low latency, and high bandwidth capabilities of the 5G network, edge computing is used to achieve real-time Display, realize real-time distribution of cloud VR services, and reduce equipment requirements.
Secondly, to achieve breakthroughs in the To C market, it is also necessary to provide guidance at the policy level to further accelerate technological innovation, improve the industrial ecology, create a number of innovative and creative VR/AR applications, and ultimately achieve industrial resource aggregation, and give full play to industrial synergy and Scale effect, complete the business closed loop.
In short, 5G+VR/AR is in the ascendant, and promoting the integration and innovation of the two will optimize the industrial structure and break through the key technologies of virtual reality. In the future, innovative applications will flourish, and new applications, new ecosystems, and new businesses will follow. 5G+VR/AR will become a “killer application” in the future.
