Two leading GCC telecom companies, Zain Group and Omantel, have announced a key initiative to standardize glasses-free 3D technologies, build ecosystem capabilities, and incubate innovative applications using 5G, 5G-A, artificial intelligence (AI), and computing network capabilities in the Middle East.

Unveiled at the Samena Telecommunications Council Leaders’ Summit 2024, in partnership with LAiPIC AI, Lititong, and Lanshen 3D, the Middle East Glasses-Free 3D Industry Initiative aims to further develop and commercialize glasses-free 3D technology. The initiative emphasizes the importance of high-speed, low-latency 5G and 5G-A networks, powerful computing networks, and AI in enhancing the user experience and scaling the commercialization of glasses-free 3D.

According to Zain Group and Omantel, 2024 will be pivotal for the scaled commercialization of glasses-free 3D. The initiative will focus on the collaborative development of glasses-free 3D display and AI technologies, as well as content, applications, and networks. The goal is to create a next-gen experience for users and new value for the industry at large.

Key aspects of the initiative include:

  • Developing glasses-free 3D applications in consumer electronics, such as smartphones and tablets, at low costs.
  • Integrating new technologies like AI, AR, and VR to improve the 3D user experience.
  • Exploring glasses-free 3D applications in diverse fields such as education, healthcare, and manufacturing.

The initiative aims to expand the 3D ecosystem, improve the user experience, and identify new business opportunities. For example, in education, glasses-free 3D can make learning more engaging and intuitive, while in healthcare, it can be used for medical image visualization and surgical simulation.

The Samena Telecommunications Council Leaders’ Summit 2024, held at Atlantis, The Palm in Dubai, was themed “Evolving toward Integration, Intelligence & Sustainability in Infrastructure.” The summit brought together over 20 regulators, 30 operators, and 300 industry leaders worldwide to discuss key topics such as leading the 5G-A era, digital transformation, and spectrum opportunities for the GCC region.

Attendees included regulators from the UAE and Saudi Arabia, industry organizations like GSMA and the World Broadband Association (WBBA), operators from the Middle East, Asia, and Africa, and ICT infrastructure representatives from Huawei and Nokia. Enterprise representatives, analysts, application ecosystem partners, and media partners also participated in the event.
