- Touch and Get 2-hour Movie in 2 Seconds -
A field trial of high-speed content distribution service was carried out at several subway stations around New Delhi, India, in November 2022 by HRCP Research and Development Partnership (hereinafter "HRCP R&D"), a member of the Tokyo-based TransferJet Consortium (hereinafter "the TJC"). The service enables users to download movies and games at an extremely high speed by just touching the devices used.
Outline of the trial:
Given a TransferJet X-installed dongle, attached to an Android smartphone, participants can select their favorite content types on an app developed by HRCP R&D. Then, by touching a Touch Point (transfer device) at a station, the selected content, for example, a 2-hour-long HD movie, is transferred in 2 seconds. The content is protected by Digital Rights Management (DRM). HRCP R&D is developing SoC (System-on-a-Chip) technology of TransferJet X ( https://www.hrcp.jp/en ).
Summary of TransferJet X specification:
The TJC has led a group at IEEE to successfully develop the IEEE 802.15.3e standard amendment and at ITU Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) to successfully develop the recommendation M.2003-2. Based on both standards, the TJC published the TransferJet X technical standard using 60GHz millimeter wave radio in May 2022. This standard established higher speed data transfer up to 13.1 Gbps while keeping easy operation and realized extreme high-volume content transfer like 4K video or VR. In addition, the required connection setup time has been reduced to 2 msec or less, allowing new usage scenarios such as delivering content while walking through a ticket gate.
