Mo-Sys Engineering has partnered with VividQ to build better 3D holographic systems in real space, enabling users of future AR devices, like smart glasses, to explore virtual content in context with the natural environment. Mo-Sys StarTracker is a camera tracking technology widely used in television production and other creative environments for applications from virtual studios to realtime set extensions. It provides precise location for the camera in XYZ space, and with free rotation.
VividQ software for computer-generated holography is used in innovative display applications from AR wearables, to head-up displays. Holography – the holy grail of display technologies — relies on high-performance computation of complex light patterns to project realistic objects and scenes, for example in AR devices. VividQ generates holographic projections which, thanks to the precision location of Mo-Sys, can be displayed to the user at the correct place in the real environment. This is a major advance on today’s AR devices where flat (stereoscopic) objects are mismatched with the real world. By presenting holographic projections with depth, the user’s eyes can focus naturally as they scan the scene.
