What kind of spark will 5G and screen-less computers have? Mr.Tiger Wang,CEO of HOTUS Technology: Integration is the last word
On October 14, the China International Information and Communication Exhibition was held in Beijing. As the cooperated media partner of the conference, the operator Caijing.com interviewed Mr.Tiger Wang exclusively, the general manager of Hotus Technology. Hotus Technology is a technology company that focusing on the development of screen-less computer, and has produced first massive production screen-less computer on the world. It has become the industry's first after three years in the industry. In the past year, with the rapid development of 5G networks has also created opportunities for the development of Smart Investment Technology. Mr.Tiger Wang, general manager of Hotus Technology, said that the correlation between 5G network and equipment is the key, and the integration of 5G modules will greatly solve education and business problems.
Operator Caijing.com: I learned that Hotus Technology, as the pioneer of screen-less computers, produced the world's first non-screen computer. What leading technologies does Hotus Technology have in this field?
Tiger Wang : In terms of projection,as we know that many projectors are very single products. What is their state? It is equivalent to buying a projector, and then you have to prepare VGA, HDMI, DIY and many other cables,those are required for all projectors. Everyone knows that people are traveling more and more frequently and need to go to other cities or state province to introduce products, services and business models to customers. The compatible interface of the computer is very strange. Apple, Asus and other brands have all the interfaces inconsistent. Some companies might only be equipped with a set of VGA cables or several HDMI cables based on company standards, and there are different versions of HDMI cables. In this case, if you go out with a traditional computer, the compatibility is not very good for projection. Thus ,we make the PC and projector are integrated. From a technical point of view, first of all, our products use DLP technology, German OSRAM LED light source, and a combination of Intel hardware and Microsoft platform. We named it B5, B5 is a notebook model, our product is equivalent to the size of the one handhold notebook. Small size and multiple functions , it integrated display functions, computer functions, and projector functions. When you go out, you can find a small schoolbag to put it in, our products are equipped with Intel x86 architecture platforms and Microsoft's systems, allowing you to show the customers required contents and core anytime, anywhere.
Operator Caijing.com: Hotus Technology has been focusing on the field of screen-less computers for just three years, but it has already become the industry's first. What experience does it have along the way?
Mr.Tiger Wang: In the industry of windows plus projectors, Hotus Technology is a company that can make massive production and ship them out . Over the years, the biggest reason is our persistence. You should know that the projection industry is very money-consuming, and the product life is long time, from optics, heat dissipation, electronics to optical mechatronics integration, including test period, test content and test sections. Therefore, we are persisting in this industry. First of all, it comes from our original intention for products. We want to solve problems and solve more pain points from customers. Our company's slogan is "can do things well in one step, not five steps." Therefore, improving the customer's time efficiency, production cycle, and productivity are the origins that drives Hotus Technology. We are generating all the technological drivers, without any objects that can be imitated. There are projectors, notebooks for computers, and monitors, but they are all in their respective industries and not integrated. There are various interfaces, protocols and other difficulties when doing integration, so we put a lot of sources into it. First of all, we persevere in solving customer needs and realizing customer vision. We want to provide a solution that can really help users solve business trip problems, improve efficiency, and solve other needs of users. It can be seen that people are traveling very frequently now, what is their biggest demand? Nowadays, notebooks and mobile phones have entered thousands of households and become civilian products. When traveling on business, all these products are packed in suitcases, which seems a bit too much. When people introduce products to customers, they may be faced with a small conference room. When we show it, we have to open the laptop and circle around to let everyone see it again. Nowadays, people pay attention to personal hygiene. Wearing too much in winter and too little in summer will cause unnecessary embarrassing . With our products, you can solve more things with a small Windows system portable projector . This effect can be achieved because we think about problems and solve problems from the perspective of customers.
Operator Caijing.com: What is the current status of cooperation between our products and customers?
Mr.Tiger Wang: During the transition from 2019 to 2020, 95% of our company's sales comes from exports. And we have our own customer groups and agents in Europe, Japan, Korea, Indonesia, Russia and South America. But African country has not been covered yet. Our products have a certain technical content, and the price is high for them. But for customers like Europe,America countries our products can meet their needs.
Operator Caijing.com: This year the entire industry is talking about 5G integration. Where do you think is the integration of screen-less computers and 5G? And will 5G bring new growth points to it?
Mr.Tiger Wang: Whether it is 5G or higher-speed networks in the future, if the growth of communication is regarded as the improvement of tool efficiency, then there are many signals for our products in terms of education, business and higher levels of cinema. Although 5G makes content sharing faster, in education and business, we pay more attention to the connection between 5G and various devices. In another word, 5G is very fast now,it’s just a beginning on hardware construction and the supporting volume. Yes, let’s return to our projection display, in the process of integrating the entire production chain, we think that there are still a lot of content and things need to be provided. In terms of integration efforts, I think this is a case, with unlimited time and unlimited places, our business and education products can integrate education or business content into 5G channels, so that everything connected with the 5G internet,better communication and interactive. Under the circumstances, you can accomplish what you want to do. The concept of the global village has been mentioned for many years, but there is still a sense of limitation. If a team wants to gather together for a meeting, one person may be in Beijing, one in Shanghai, Xi'an, etc., gathering together requires a high cost of time, and members may have their own things to be busy, so the efficiency is very low . But when we can truly integrate 5G, taking the HT1500 model we have already put into production, we can integrate equipment in different locations, which is equivalent to sharing one IP for video in 5, 6 or more offices. For conferences, our video conference has a 360° rotating camera with a microphone capable of real-time recording. It can conduct real-time normal voice interaction in a 200-square-meter meeting room, no need a separate microphone. The content and images projected by our products can also be interactively experienced. Which part of the content you want to show, you can use our stylus or your finger to operate on the white wall. For example, if you want to open a PPT, word, or other file, just mark it on the screen projected on the screen, and other offices can experience the immersive meeting effect. This is based on 5G integration to solve the interactive experience.
Therefore, whether it is 5G or other communication methods, the biggest significance is to solve the convergence point of traffic. On the basis of the new 5G, our equipment not only integrates educational software and business software, but the system is basic. Whether it is the latest version of Intel or the version of Windows, we also integrate 5G modules to integrate everything together. If you buy a projector as usual, you also need to be equipped with WIFI, Bluetooth and other equipment separately. But after integrating the 5G module, it can meet our needs by plugging it in. Even in remote mountainous areas, there will be no jams caused by the interference of WIFI signals. As far as education is concerned, many remote mountainous areas have underdeveloped networks and may have 5G signals, but unlike large cities that have full coverage of WIFI signals, in some remote areas or second and third-tier cities, a separate fiber or WIFI is required. And schools are scattered and large in size. How many lines does a school have to pull to meet demand? But with our 5G integrated module, as long as a 5G card is inserted, the entire education needs can be met. Especially nowadays parents are very concerned about their children's learning achievements, and often want to watch them in real time. Our products can access the public network, which is equivalent to accessing the education address. Parents can see the teacher's efforts and the child's status in real time, so that both parties can participate in the cultivation of new talents.
