Gartner named most important technology trends for next year.
Gartner, the world-leading research and advisory firm, named most important trends in technology adoption next year. "Digital twin" (a digital representation of physical objects) and "Immersive experiences", both closely related to holographic display, were named amongst top 10 tech trends for 2019.
Gartner’s report indicates that ‘70% of enterprises will be experimenting with immersive technologies for consumer and enterprise use by 2022’. Historic 3D technologies, which trick the psychological perception of depth into creating depth effects, are widely understood to have inherent anti-immersion setbacks including a lack of real depth, defocus and ‘simulator sickness’ which can lead to discomfort similar to sea-sickness. Diffractive Holograms, which the eye treats in the same manner as natural three dimensional objects, overcome these inherent limitations and offer a far greater scope for immersion. Hence VividQ’s holographic enablement technology is positioned as a cornerstone solution for immersive technologies.
‘Digital twins’ are digital replications of physical assets, such as virtual environments and work spaces. These replications have huge 3D data requirements which VividQ stands to ease with it’s Squeeze point-cloud data compression solution. Ultimately, these technologies, identified as key global trends by the world’s leading research organisation, align strongly with the direction of innovations in holography, putting VividQ in an extremely strong position of increasing relevance as immersive technologies and 3D data storage requirements become increasingly ubiquitous across enterprises globally.
