PlayGiga has recently announced the expansion of its next generation game streaming service in the United States after successful launches across Spain, Italy, Argentina, Chile and Qatar.
As Telcos begin to deploy and commercialize their 5G network services, high quality streaming of videogames will become a reality for the first time over mobile networks, as previous networks were not powerful enough. 5G technology will greatly reduce latency and increase bandwidth, 10–100 times more data per second, compared to 4G. “5G sets the new standards for high bandwidth consuming services and Cloud Gaming could be the first use case to validate this technology”, said Javier Polo, CEO of PlayGiga.
As cloud gaming services become then the next big opportunity for telcos, media companies, and PC and smart TV manufacturers, PlayGiga has become the gaming platform of the future. The company’s gaming solution allows its partners to extend their portfolio of digital services and increase both customer engagement and revenue growth.
Processing and streaming of VR gaming can be extremely demanding. However, this new gaming VR experience in the cloud has a negligible latency thanks to this joint initiative combining Vodafone’s 5G network and PlayGiga´s technology. Tests have shown that 5G technology will greatly reduce latency and increase bandwidth, which is essential for sending high-definition renders of top-quality AAA games.
At MWC 2019, PlayGiga is demoing its innovative Virtual Reality (VR) gaming prototype running entirely in the cloud over a 5G Vodafone commercial network.
Stop by the Vodafone booth for an up-close look at how PlayGiga is combining its groundbreaking cloud gaming technology in affordable VR headsets with Vodafone´s 5G infrastructure to create a more enriched and convenient gaming experience at greatly reduced user costs.
