The boffins at SeeReal are today unveiling their new electro-holography technology which they claim will deliver a real 3D television display without special glasses or the like. It all sounds a bit off planet, especially since there appear to be no better images of the tech than this rather obvious illustration, so we’ll hold our judgement, if not breath, until something concrete arrives.
SeeReal’s new breakthrough approach to electro-holography overcomes these two challenges through Tracked Viewing Window technology and real-time encoding of sub-holograms. Based on extensive experience and know-how in development of 3D display technologies, SeeReal has created a concept, the Viewing Window Technology, limiting pixel size to levels already known for HDTV applications. This, in combination with a real-time tracking system, eliminates superfluous elements and at the same time significantly reduces the requirements for real-time computing solutions. This new concept of limiting holographic imaging to the Viewing Windows is applicable to direct view (desktop or TV) as well as to projection imaging.
