Toronto, May 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The game changing EV SUV-maker VinFast has tapped award-winning Proto Inc., formerly known as Portl, to spread its message of green, affordable luxury across Canada. The Vietnamese automaker is touring its Pinnafarina designed VF8 & VF9 with a roadshow in Toronto, Montreal and Vancouver and a showcase as innovative as the cars it promotes.
Proto, the original holoportation company, and MOUSE 3D DIGITAL, have created an incredible celebration of Pininfarina’s Italian heritage (think Fiat & Ferrari), linked with Vietnam’s inspiring innovation to create a better world without compromise. The Proto Epic at the heart of VinFast’s roadshow is the original self-contained, plug-and-play, 4K interactive hologram device. Used by Fortune 500 companies, major broadcast awards shows and every major league sport – Proto’s experience in beaming people around the world and presenting digital art, objects and content of all kinds is unmatched. Already in 2022, Proto has won 3 honors at the CES Innovation Awards, the top award for “Connecting People” at SXSW’s Innovation Awards and a spot on the Fast Company Most Innovative Companies list.
“Proto has already established itself in Toronto with two global firsts last Summer,” said David Nussbaum, Inventor and CEO of Proto Inc., the original holoportation device. “Now we show the rest of Canada what we can do. We’re very proud to partner with VinFast and to celebrate all true innovators working to save the planet in style.”
The VinFast activations kicked off at Square One Shopping Centre and is currently at Canada's leading luxury Yorkdale Mall until June 5th, then heading to Cadillac Fairview’s Montreal Carrefour Centre from June 19th-26th, and Richmond Centre, British Columbia from July 8th to 24th. The roadshow includes immersive brand storytelling by Vietnamese reality show star Sindy with an "S" from Big Brother Canada Season 3 & 5.
“It’s truly remarkable, The VinFast Roadshow is just getting revved up and our holographic content has already been viewed by more than 400,000 consumers,” says Glenn E. Smith, Chief Customer Officer at MOUSE 3D DIGITAL, a global leader in holographic content experiences and leader of a team of Proto certified content producers in Toronto. “We are experiencing unprecedented dwell times of over 7 minutes, because consumers are naturally attracted to this new form of immersive media, and engaging content delivered in such a unique way. This is the future of media and immersive brand storytelling.”
MOUSE 3D DIGITAL is the Authorized Service Provider and Reseller of Proto in Toronto, and it created a global first when it used Proto to present the first hologram bartender in an activation with Diageo in 2021.
Proto is the worldwide holographic leader, working with Fortune 500 firms, universities, major telecoms, top entertainment industry companies and superstar athletes and artists. Its first-to-market, self-contained hologram devices have been used by AT&T, Virgin Media 02, Netflix, HBO, Kia, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Ellen DeGeneres, Howie Mandel, Usain Bolt, Lewis Hamilton and many more. Proto is the only holographic company that has been used in NFL, NBA, MLB, MLS, NCAA and Grand Slam Tennis events including coverage of the Super Bowl.
