SPIE Photonics West is the world’s largest photonics technology event.
Following an invitation to speak about our powerful hologram generation technologies, VividQ were excited to join the AR/VR/MR section of SPIE Photonics West this year. With a calendar full of meetings and the dedicated demo booth, our team came down to San Francisco in the first week of February to showcase VividQ’s ground breaking technology. The sheer scale of the event was incredible and we found it to be a great place to learn about the latest research in photonics, and discuss the most innovative applications of holographic display.
This year was VividQ’s first visit to Photonics West. VividQ’s CEO Darran Milne was invited to speak at the event by Bernard Kress of Microsoft HoloLens, who chaired the event. Darran’s talk presenting capabilities of our software engine to generate high quality holographic images was met with a great reception from the audience. Throughout 2 exhibition days, a large amount of booth visitors got to try our holographic headset prototype first hand and experience mixed reality in full-depth 3D for the first time. Our demonstration of the holographic projection of Skyrim - achieved in real-time of a single nVidia GPU - received an overwhelmingly positive feedback from the true gurus in the field. We are looking forward to showing even more at the event in 2020.
