Double Meeting: On the 5th of February, Socialist front runner Jean-Luc Melenchon utilized the Musion3D Telepresence solution to kick off his campaign appearing in the flesh in Lyon and as a three-dimensional spectre in suburban Paris at the same time. Delivering his address in front of two live audiences in this way is a World first.

Multi Meeting: Following on from the success of Double Meeting Jean-Luc Melenchon chose again the Musion holographic Telepresence solution to address simultaneously 7 different audiences on the 18th of April, 2017. This allowed him to appear in the flesh during a public rally in Dijon and as a live streaming hologram in the five French cities of Clermont-Ferrand, Grenoble, Montpellier, Nancy, Nantes together with the Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean.

Mr Melenchon’s iconic political broadcast as a live hologram is a World first event of its kind.

#LaForceDuPeople and #JLMHologramme started trending shortly after the events started and Melenchon’s official Twitter account announced that 60,000 people were following the events live on Facebook and Twitter.

Tech fan Mélenchon says the hologram should be an “occasion to discover what everyone knows: That when the human spirit invents, when no conditions of skin colour, religion or gender are placed upon it, well, the imagination unleashes itself and shares knowledge.”
