Solve remote work problems with HoloD!
Remote work has spread rapidly in recent years. If you use it well, you can greatly increase the productivity of your company, but on the other hand, there are many companies that feel the following issues. ■ The nuances cannot be conveyed or heard
→Since it is difficult to ask how the other person is doing, it is difficult to have a conversation at a short time. Difficult to convey subtle nuances.
■ Decreased sense of belonging to the company
→I lost my sense of belonging to the company because I had fewer opportunities to be taught by my superiors/seniors and to have small talk.
→ I feel lonely because it is difficult to grasp the subtle nuances, the overall picture of the business, and the corporate culture. It is difficult to say that existing web conferencing and chat tools can complement communication in remote work, and we hear many voices of concerns such as the following.
Trouble with remote work
Therefore, Bunshodo and H2L have developed a remote work hologram device “HoloD”. By working remotely with HoloD, you can not only solve these problems, but also experience a completely new remote
communication that is different from before.

HoloD is a system that enables web communication by projecting a remote worker onto a transmission hologram at 1/1 actual size. By projecting people in real size, it is possible to convey the atmosphere and nuances that can be obtained in face-to-face
And with always-on connectivity, remote workers feel as if they are in the office. For office workers, since they can always see the expressions and movements of remote workers, it is possible to have casual communication in the same way as face-to-face.
The new product has a compact design that fits in a dedicated carrying case, so even those who are not good at setting up web conferences can now connect immediately.

Results of comparative experiments between HoloD and web conferencing tools No makeup or pajamas is fine! Using avatars to make remote work more comfortable With HoloD, you can choose to project a webcam image or your own avatar. The avatar is a model of your own face that mimics the movements of the remote worker’s head and mouth. By using avatars, you can connect with others without worrying about your appearance. In the future, we aim to apply H2L’s BodySharing(R) technology to convey body movements to avatars.

Effects of HoloD
HoloD utilization scene example
HoloD can be used in the following scenes.
→ If HoloD is installed at the reception desk of the company and the appearance of the receptionist is projected and connected all the time, it is also possible for remote workers to handle the reception. You don’t have to be at the reception desk all the time. When there are no visitors, it is possible to do other work besides reception, which leads to improved productivity of the company.
■ Always-on remote work
→ If you install HoloD in front of your office desk, you can consult with office members, give instructions, and receive instructions even when working remotely in the same way as going to the office. It is also possible to work at multiple locations.
■Meetings, Board of Directors, General Meeting of Shareholders →Even though it’s an important meeting, I can only attend remotely… Even in such a case, if you put HoloD in the conference room, you can attend the meeting as if it were face-to-face. As an advanced initiative, it will be noticed by conference participants.
■ In-house training and lectures
→ If you project the instructor’s appearance on HoloD, you can conduct training and lectures as if you were talking directly.
■ Recruitment interviews and personnel interviews
→ If you set up HoloD at the interview venue and project the interviewer, you can conduct the interview as if it were face-to-face. It is also possible to switch the person projected by one HoloD, so you can change the interviewer depending on the applicant.
