TikTok is preparing to offer an augmented reality (AR) advertising format that will compete more directly with the Snapchat filter. Snapchat filters are a key feature of photo messaging apps. Digiday, citing people familiar with the matter, said the AR brand effects AD would allow TikTok users to create videos with the AR visuals of sponsors.
Augmented reality will interact with the physical environment seen through a smartphone camera, giving brands a way to integrate their digital images into user-created video.

Offline advertising can be divided into two types: sales of WIMI example advertising display and non-standard item advertising display.
Entertainment business can be divided into online and offline AR holographic interactive entertainment. Online entertainment mainly includes AR holographic effect insertion of TV series, application of AR holographic effect insertion of live broadcast and short video platforms, and development, release and operation of AR holographic games. Offline entertainment mainly provides the company’s own holographic digital IP copyright application, distribution and authorization services, holographic theater services and holographic performing arts services.

Before understanding WIMI, you need to have a basic understanding of VR, AR and MR. VR is virtual reality. Users can interact with the virtual world naturally with the help of specific devices. AR is augmented reality. This technology can superposition the virtual world with the real world, and users can interact with each other through the device. There is a small game named “AR tiaole” in ant manor of alipay, which is a simple application of augmented reality. MR is a hybrid reality that combines real and virtual worlds to create new environments and visualise a three-dimensional world. From the technical boundary, AR contains VR, while MR contains AR.
WIMI’s holographic AR adware allows customers to insert real or animated 3d objects into video clips, seamlessly integrating the objects with the scene segments in the video, while the ads are mainly broadcast in film and television programs.
