Utilizing the power of Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband, Verizon will use a 360-degree camera to transport fans from Times Square in New York City to the Oscars Red Carpet in Hollywood. Fans can step into a 5G Portal where they will be "transported" to the famous Dolby Theatre red carpet in Hollywood where they can see all the star-studded action live as it happens. The 5G Portal experience puts viewers in control of how they view and engage with the red carpet and their favorite celebrities in a unique and new way.

MORE: The Oscars red carpet portal joins a list of entertainment experiences that Verizon has brought to life using the power of their 5G Ultra Wideband technology. From a 5G activation at a live Chainsmokers concert to showcasing the future of the fan experience with the Verizon 5G Stadium at Super Bowl Live to a 5G portal during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade, Verizon is dedicated to leveraging their first class partnerships and their technology to change entertainment experiences.
