Inspiration

ohiaTV is inspired by the passion and mission to showcase the importance of Animal and nature conservation and the dangers posed by poachers, Illegal logging, deforestation and unchecked desertification of nature. #ProtectAnimals #ProtectNature #FightClimateChange

We human beings can’t protect or love what we don’t understand or see. So ohiaTV brings the jungle actions uncut to your mobile phone in real-time.

Global deforestation has massive repercussions and is a huge contributor to the climate crisis, delivering a twofold assault: at the present rate, deforestation results in more emissions than all the cars and trucks on Earth combined, while also accelerating species extinction rates. At the same time, having fewer forests means less carbon dioxide is absorbed and removed from the atmosphere. In this way, restoring and conserving forests, along with the wildlife that maintain proper ecosystem function, is an essential, untapped solution in the fight against the climate crisis.

What it does

ohiaTV delivers real-time reality shows, videos and 360 virtual reality of the wildlife ecosystem in Africa.

How I built it

The app was built with Java for the client application and PHP for the backend.

Challenges I ran into

We had problems launching our APK directly on Verizon remote phone as it wouldn't allow APKs from unknown source so we had to list our app on the Google Play to enable us install it from the Verizon Nova platform. Everything was fine after that.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We are proud to build a TV app dedicated to Wildlife and nature conservation where everyone can post videos that inspire the world to conserve nature and wildlife as we battle the effects of climate change, snow storms, heatwaves, flash floods, hurricanes, typhoons, rising sea levels, drought, famine and hunger around the world. Nature preservation is key to humanity's survival.

What we learned

We learnt to deploy a 5G centered application and EC2 for the first time in a 5G Wavelength, configure carrier gateways, configure subnet with enabled wavelength zones. Working with remote 5G phones on Verizon Nova Platform for the first time was fun.

What's next for ohiaTV

We're looking at bringing mainstream Wildlife film producers, conservationists, professionals and developers onto the platform and also enabling a wider Live Streaming capability that will help viewers tune-in and watch wildlife and nature happenings in real-time.
