KCR to do a Modi with 3-D tech
Interestingly, the same Hyderabad-based company that had supplied the cutting-edge technology to Modi has been roped in by KCR. Sources said the back-end work has been completed and the TRS chief's 3-D hologram campaign would be launched on Saturday. "We are planning two big events for the poll campaign. One is the launch of the virtual campaign using 3-D hologram technology slated for April 12 and the second is a public meeting scheduled for April 13 in Karimnagar where KCR would address a gathering of over a lakh people," Subhash Reddy, political secretary to KCR, told TOI.
Modi used this technology for the first time for election meetings in 2012, addressing voters across 53 locations in Gujarat simultaneously. Modi wanted to use this technology in Hyderabad when he addressed his first public rally in south India on August 11 last year, after he was made the BJP's prime ministerial candidate. The party had planned to organize 3-D projection of his address at the L B Stadium at 25 places across the city, but it was shelved after the police denied permission because of the ongoing APNGO strike against the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh.
Hyderabad-based NChant is the technology supplier to Modi and film maker Mani Shankar is the man behind it. TRS sources said the party too has hired the services of NChant but Mani Shankar declined to comment whether he is also part of the KCR campaign.
Subhash Reddy said special vehicles have been hired for the 3-D hologram projection of KCR's pre-recorded speeches. The projections would be organised at 42 places across Telangana on a given day and plans are afoot to cover 700 places by April 28 when the campaign comes to an end
