About the project
The Brand Avatar is the 2WATCH solution, developed in the Vodafone Action for 5G program, which allows the creation of an avatar with realistic appearance and movements thanks to the use of motion capture and 3D modeling technologies. The avatar, generated and animated with the CGI (Computer Generated Imagery) technique for rendering digital special effects, can perform live streaming, live in the Metaverse, create content for social networks and participate in live events. Thanks to the ultra-broadband and millisecond latency of 5G and Vodafone's Edge Cloud (MEC), the avatar can interact in real time in a fluid and natural way during live events.
