Valhalla, New York -  Alan Kadish, M.D., president of New York Medical College (NYMC) and Touro College and University System (TCUS), has announced that NYMC has been granted a new patent, #10,863,274, in holographic Wi-Fi transmission.  The newly granted patent will be used in several areas of medical imaging, education and telemedicine, as well as commercial applications in industrial markets and the entertainment industry.

“This patent adds to our extensive portfolio of patents in the area of holography, which will be one of the emerging technologies of communication.  Its adoption is even more important as the world changes its behavior because of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic,” says Dr. Kadish. “Adding to the strength of our portfolio in this area is the adoption of 5G wireless network technology.  It will allow our Wi-Fi transmissions for holograms to stream on a broader scale and at a lower cost therefore making it available in the mainstream market.”

Lisa Pamintuan, director of technology business development, TCUS, added, “People who see holograms today are struck by the seamless blend of virtual and augmented images with reality itself.”  

The holograms as seen in venues, which have fascinated viewers around the world, can now be controlled by a device as simple as a smartphone using the high data transmission enabled by 5G wireless technology systems. “The public has seen examples of holograms in concerts and in arenas but the day to day use in home entertainment, telemedicine and education can now be unleashed and will change communications in all aspects of daily life,” says Pamintuan.
