Scenario 1: 360-degree panoramic video transmission in the intensive care unit

VR cameras in the ICU and neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) to achieve Ultra-High-Definition 8K video hard decoding and 360-degree panoramic realtime viewing through 5G transmission, allowing the command center to keep abreast of the ward dynamics. Improve the work efficiency of medical staff.

Scenario 2: AR head-mounted camera helps efficient consultation

The AR head-mounted camera technology is used in the isolation ward of fever clinics and the remote consultations in the intensive care unit. The consultation expert does not need to be on-site. The doctor in the ward wear AR glasses equipment, and the real-time transmission of the scene of the ward and the patient are achieved through 5G large bandwidth and low latency. The patient’s vital signs are also transmitted to the consultation command center or expert mobile phones and computers in real time. Through the built-in "micro screen" and "embedded microphone" of the glasses, the doctors in the ward communicate with the consultation experts on the patient's condition, understand the patient's examination results, medication, postoperative recovery, etc., discuss and determine the consultation results. The real-time transmission of high-definition, all-round video images of China Unicom's 5G+AR enables consultation experts to achieve a "seeing the screen like the face" consultation effect and improve the quality of consultation.
