Austrian researchers make world's first quantum encrypted video call 
Researchers in Austria and China have made the world's first video call protected by quantum encryption.

Using the separate keys and the combined key on the other hand, both ground stations now were able to generate a common encryption key for the call between Vienna and Beijing.

The collaboration of researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Austrian Academy of Sciences and the University of Vienna included the teams of quantum physicists Jian-Wei Pan and Anton Zeilinger. 

“The exchange of quantum encrypted information over inter-continental distances confirms the potential of quantum communication technologies as opened up by fundamental research”, said Anton Zeilinger. "This is a very important step towards a world-wide and secure quantum internet."
