Mativision’s pioneering virtual reality (VR) technology made possible the first in the world live VR-broadcast of an operation on a patient with colon cancer at The Royal London Hospital. Mativision®™ used special 360° cameras in the operating theatre to capture the operation and live streamed it through the company’s revolutionary 360° and VR-enabled interactive player. Thousands of medical students and professionals all over the world, used Mativision’s bespoke App and their smartphones and VR headsets, to watch the operation and learn about surgery at first hand from one of the country’s leading cancer surgeons, Dr. Shafi Ahmed who said: “Thank you everyone in making this happen, it was incredible. Mativision®™ have to be one of the most professional companies that I have ever worked with, brilliant from start to finish”
