AV Concepts Brings Live 3-D Holographic Presenters from London to Orlando

July 11, 2009 | Chris Payatagool

Infocomm_MASERGY_MUSION.jpgAV Concepts, in partnership with Illusio Technologies, MASERGY, Christie and Musion Systems, produced a demonstration titled, "Experience a New Dimension: 3-D Holographic Projection", which transmitted live, interactive holograms from London to a live audience at Infocomm09 in Orlando, FL. Speakers and performers in London appeared as a life-sized image, with the speaker and the audience able to see each other, respond and interact in real-time. The impressive demonstration also featured live duets with singers in both Orlando and London performing and interacting with the audience. The effect was so astonishingly lifelike, with characters and graphics appearing as 3-D, that audience members frequently asked the performers in London to prove that they were not actually on the stage in Orlando or in a nearby room.

AV Concepts, as the lead technical producer, utilized patented Musion foil provided by Illusio Technologies, called Eyeliner (R). "Previously a sci-fi technology limited to Star Trek and Star Wars, 3-D holograms are now a reality and can be used as a tool for live, interactive meetings between speakers and their audiences who are based in different locations," said James Rock, director of Musion. Speakers, appearing as 3-D holograms, are able to see, view and interact with their remote audience, making this an ideal tool for trade shows, retail displays, keynote speeches, visitor attractions, lecturers, courtroom witnesses, house of worship, musicians, comedians and other forms of entertainment, especially those that require a two-way communication between the speaker and audience.

The two-way signal latency of fewer than 200 milliseconds (2/10ths of a second) is approximately six times faster than satellite, delivering streaming HD video content with the signal immediacy of radio. The 3-D looking image is created by Musion's unique and patented Eyeliner(R) Foil apparatus. This incredible quality is possible because MASERGY's global network was purpose-built to deliver superior video performance at all times and under all network conditions.
