Holographic 3D Digital Projection Explained

First-ever Transmission of live, interactive 3D Holograms

Three Christie Roadster HD18K DLP® projectors were used for the first-ever transmission of live, interactive 3D holograms from London and Montreal to Orlando, Florida from June 17-19, 2009.

The interactive transmission process is known as Musion Live Stage telepresence and offers a new way for people to holographically communicate face-to-face in real time, crossing the boundaries of geographic distance.  It involves combining technologies such as high-definition audio, video and other technical elements to transmit an object or person’s life-size image to another location.

Superior resolution, brightness and portabiltity

Chosen for its superior resolution, brightness and portability, the Christie Roadster HD18K projector was used with Vista Systems’ Spyder to create the largest live 3D holographic display to date. Musion Systems’ patented Eyeliner® technology produces the life-size, moving 3D holograms that appear within a stage setting. It uses a specially-developed foil that reflects images from Christie’s HD video projectors, making it possible to produce virtual holographic images of incredible clarity with the help of industry-standard software.

Musion Eyeliner technology has created life-size holograms of Madonna and the animated Gorillaz band for the 2006 Grammy Awards.  3D holograms of HRH Prince Charles, Sir Richard Branson and David Beckham have also been used for public-wide communications. The Eyeliner has also been employed by leading corporations, such as Reebok and Speedo.
