Verizon teams with GoNoodle and the NFL on 5G fitness fantasy

Using Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband and edge compute, the service provider created a live virtual event where GoNoodle character Coach Terry and Miami Dolphins Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa led second graders from the Walt Disney Magnet school in Chicago, IL, in singing, dancing and an interactive performance.

Veirzon put an actor playing Coach Terry in a motion capture suit at the Yahoo/RYOT studio in LA. The actor was turned into a 3D character who interacted with Tua, who was at Verizon 5G Labs XR Stage in LA. Verizon said the low latency provided by 5G and edge compute delivered a real-time conversation between Tua and Coach Terry as well as interaction with the Chicago classroom.
