China News Service, Nanchang, October 21 (Reporter Wu Pengquan) In recent years, with the in-depth integration of new-generation information technologies such as 5G, cloud, and AI with VR technology, a more mature technology system has gradually formed, and the VR industry has entered a new stage of development. .
After 5G provides a low-latency experience for VR, where does the future of China's VR industry start?
From the 19th to the 20th, the 2021 World VR Industry Conference Cloud Summit with the theme of "VR Makes the World More Wonderful-Integrated Development and Innovative Applications" was held in Nanchang, the capital of Jiangxi Province, attracting many domestic and foreign “big coffees” in the VR field online and offline Discuss the development of VR industry.
Liu Liehong, party secretary and chairman of China United Network Communications Group Co., Ltd., believes that to promote the acceleration of the VR industry, it is necessary to lay a solid foundation for the digital base. It's a new high-speed that "connects reality and virtuality".
On October 19, Nanchang, Jiangxi, many citizens felt the charm of various cutting-edge technologies at the 2021 World VR Industry Expo.

In his view, a significant feature of VR is to realize the "interconnection between virtual and reality", but with the development of the VR industry, only solving the problem of intercommunication can no longer satisfy the development of the VR industry. It is necessary to ensure a good user experience and improve the dizziness of viewing VR. problem.
The three major characteristics of 5G are low latency, large bandwidth, and large connections, which meet the development needs of the VR industry. It can not only solve the problem of unreasonable communication between virtual and reality, but also achieve good and fast communication.
Deborah Papnik, senior vice president of Ubisoft Entertainment Software, also said in a video speech, “Virtual reality, augmented reality, and extended reality are all essential technologies for immersive experiences. These technologies can provide 2D is a completely different experience."
Public media reports show that the current number of 5G base stations in China is 1.159 million, and the number of 5G terminal connections reaches 450 million. The gigabit optical network has the capacity to cover more than 200 million households.
New infrastructure drives the development of the VR industry to upgrade.
In recent years, China's VR industry has developed rapidly, core technologies have continued to advance, product supply has become increasingly abundant, and the application innovation ecosystem has continued to grow, and a basically complete VR industry chain and industrial ecology have been formed.
At this conference, the Virtual Reality Industry Alliance released a list of China's top 50 VR companies in 2021.
From the perspective of annual sales distribution, more than 50% of the listed companies have annual sales of more than 100 million yuan, reaching 27, and only 14 in 2019.
When talking about the development status of China's VR industry, Xu Wenli, deputy director of the Electronic Information Department of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, said frankly that the development of China's VR industry still faces many problems: basic technical strength still needs to be improved, industry-scale applications have not yet broken, large-scale leading companies are still missing, and the industry's coordinated development Not yet balanced.
It is necessary to grasp the strategic opportunity period for the development of the global VR industry, plan early and make a scientific layout, and comprehensively promote the rapid, healthy and orderly development of the VR industry.
Liu Wenqiang, secretary-general of the Virtual Reality Industry Alliance and vice president of the China Electronics Information Industry Development Research Institute, suggested to increase support for innovation and R&D, accelerate the implementation of industrial infrastructure reengineering projects, and promote advanced industrial infrastructure; build an industrial service platform to enhance industrial collaborative innovation capabilities ; Accelerate the implementation of industry integration applications, focus on the application needs of key industries and characteristic fields such as industrial manufacturing, medical health, culture, education and entertainment, and innovate application types and service content.
