Holographic Monitor to be ready in 2013

Just 73 million pixels required

The new 30” HoloVizio 80WLT will be aimed at professional markets such as medical and visualisation and is said to avoid the limitations of lenticular technology with continuous parallax in the entire field-of-view, allowing people to even look behind objects. There apparently are no sweet spots, invalid zones or repeated views and viewers can be positioned anywhere in front of the display. The full-angle geometrically correct view is achieved through reconstructing all the light beams leaving the holoscreen even under extreme angles in a range up to 180 degrees.

The 3D image is built up by 73 million pixels and therefore the monitor requires multiple dual-DVI inputs to cope with the huge bandwidth needed to construct the 3D images.

The development of the display and the related technologies was partially supported by the 3D VIVANT European FP7 project. 3D VIVANT propose to use advanced 3D holoscopic imaging methodology, which uses the principle of “Fly’s eye” and hence allows natural viewing of objects and the capture of 3D holoscopic content using an array of microlenses in a single aperture camera setup.

Tibor Balogh, Holografika CEO said: ”We are always pushing boundaries to show people what 3D should look like. There is certain disillusion around stereo glasses or some multiview systems with artificial 3D effects. Full-angle view is a milestone again in 3D technologies. The image that does not disappear, 3D objects that are solidly there as you walk around, give an unprecedented level of reality. The hologram-like 3D visual impression is different and this is what people expect in the future.”

Holografika will exhibit the display at the 3D VIVANT booth during IBC. For a video of it in action see here
